Painting of Shirui lily, rare species of plant found only in the upper reaches of the Shirui hill ranges in the Ukhrul district of Manipur, India.

My father had to drop out couple of his early school years as a child due to financial constraints. He took to full time farming during those years and was heartbroken to be out of school. He shared about the hardship she endured just to get education. He believed in education so much so, even as a child he studied under a lamp post at night, walked miles barefoot from Oinam to Nambol after his early morning chores of farming wiping his muddy feet with hay. That was years ago but we still have many many children who are in situations where they are not able to go to school. It’s the spirit of kindness, the art of giving that keeps the universe beautiful. I painted the beautiful rare Shirui lily for the children of Kanggui Hope. Art products of this painting raised USD 1001 for Kanggui Hope children for their education. I believe that education can take a child places, give freedom and empowerment — it has for me.
