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.
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?
