How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
I am an Indian and after marriage I became a part of a joint family. My personal experiences of living in such a culture where insecurities overpower love, pushed me to create some characters who resembles the real life people in some ways and thus I crafted this fiction.
'Papa, I have any no more wish to paint, to avert my mind and to redirect my energy. I feel like an unemotional living thing who is heading on an endless path. There seems no destination where I can find solace and happiness. There is no world where I can uncover myself and my reason of being here. I don't feel like doing the painting. I don’t want to do anything. I never wanted to tell you but I have no one to discuss my heart with.'
