A beautiful view of the temple from my car driving at 495 freeway. Everytime I see the temple I know home is near, bringing me a great feeling after a long drive.
Inspired by Maryland First Lady Yumi Hogan. I thought about how diversity can bring humans together. She was critical in getting 500K test kits from South Korea during the early days of COVID for the people of Maryland.

Inspired by the blue color (color of throat chakra) of this beautiful flow Aprajita, a flower I grew up watching in my mother’s garden. When the throat chakra is in balance, we speak, listen, and express ourselves openly and authentically. When out of balance, we ignore our inner voice, feel afraid of expressing ourselves.

Rockville Art League Art League Juried Members’ Winter Show 2020/21 … I selected art which was evocative on multiple levels. I sought out artistic expressions where the use of the medium was proficient while the artist also pushed the boundaries of expectation. I searched for artistic compositions that revealed our world in a new perspective while conveying the human condition. I connected with images of life that stirred me to think deeply about what the artist was saying and what […]
When you are sinking deep, hitting rock bottom in a dark space feeling worthless and suddenly out of nowhere your mind is filled with the feeling of pure love, beauty and light giving you hope. Yes hope giving you the strength to rise up. Hold on to that hope tightly for you are worth it, so worth it. Yes you are 💗
My mind was filled with the hurtful words said earlier,
Bringing tears to my eyes.
I looked around,
I see the beautiful sunset,
I see the beautiful cherry blossom,
I see the beautiful Potomac river where John Quincy Adams, the 6th president of USA swam nude,
I see the tall Washington monument in DC.
Most importantly I see love around me,
Gratitude filled my heart,
Bringing me back to Now,
Bringing back my smile.
The power of Now is there for you too 💗

Of love, beauty, peace and healing. Many times we get stuck into the definition and expectation as defined by society. As I painted this flower inspired by the beautiful Shirui lily of Manipur, I thought of it as a symbol of beauty and love blooming in the midst of my healing birthplace. This flower can only bring out a smile in you, giving you the feeling of unconditional love, that moment of freedom where you are only you. There is no anger nor hatred nor violence nor judgement, just a moment of you being you.
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.
Jone would go to the local joints where dog meat is served and would do cute stunts saluting the customers as his master Jotin was hoping that the customers may change their mind of eating dog meat seeing such a cute lovable 💗dog
I want to share about some of the incidents in Manipur to your questions on why I am very passionate and driven about my initiatives and projects of FindingTheVoices to spread positivity and love. I feel that we are all so lost with anger in the midst of conflict and identity, and have forgotten the humanity within us. These are some of the incidents which have touched me deeply…
During my darkest times, when I closed my eyes thinking of love, purity, protection and blessing, it was the image of my grandmother’s morning offering which came to my mind many times giving me so much of strength, strength making all the darkness fade way, filling me with love.

I started this painting on 14th Sept 2018 filled with such heaviness and pain after watching the videos of mob culture in Manipur questioning myself with How many Farooque has to die? Where is humanity? What are we teaching the kids?
