The Truth, they say is constant, never-changing.

But coming to truth is a journey that starts with a willingness to shed the untruth.
This blanket of comfort we hide beneath seduces us with its deceptive comfort and warmth. Keeping us from the liberation that rests without.
 I would rather the sometimes harsh truth than the misleading untruth.

From discomfort to comfort.



From untruth to truth.

From darkness to light.

Naked Thoughts - A work in progress.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Thousands of the right words can paint beautiful pictures in the mind's eye.I am the sum of my thoughts. These thoughts I put into words. 

When you walk into this space, you become part of my most intimate, naked thoughts.

The Bogoli Phut Days - Pitki's adventures in Assam


The Bogoli Phut Days is a children's book created by me is now published by HarperCollins Publishers India and is out in stores. Here's a it about the book:

Bogoli (bow-go-lee): Egret

Phut (ph-oo-tt): Spot

‘There is a myth in Assam that the white spots one gets on one’s fingernails are actually a gift from the bogoli. As children, we recited a rhyme with our hands held before us each time we saw the bird, trying to coax it into giving us a few lucky spots.’

Seven-year-old Pitki is on her way to Sekoni Tea Estate in Assam to visit her grandparents for the winter holidays. She travels to wildlife sanctuaries in Assam, listens to ancient Assamese folk tales that her Aitama (grandma) tells her and catches fish with her brother, Dondi. Fun and effortlessly informative, The Bogoli Phut Days is a delightful introduction to Assam, its culture, geography and folklore.

Beautifully illustrated and including evocative retellings of Assamese folk tales, this is a book for children of all ages – to read alone or along with their parents and grandparents. Children from Assam will find a new way to connect to their cultural heritage, and the ones from other places will find themselves introduced to a compelling and rich world.

Anchor



















Have nothing funny to say this morning. 
Here's a piece from a while back.

Yin be the anchor to the yang. 
Tame that mad energy.
Maybe you can relate, maybe you cannot.

What has become of you? Have you lost your splendor to the sun that was too harsh? But, the sun has shone as always... why then, have you lost your colour and all the beauty that contentment brings? Though still open, have you forgotten to receive?  Has the wisdom left you... leaving behind but a shell?
