I deeply admire writers – Lidia Yuknavitch, Rebecca Solnit – who hand you their experience in a way that feels unfiltered, like their heart is an egg cracked into your hand, their hope and their fury: of course, this is a craft in itself.

 

A lot of my writing, I think, is an attempt to engage with the aspects of being in the world that are hard for me to articulate, to engage with the questions I don’t have answers to. I keep gravitating to questions of home and belonging, with occasionally contradictory answers, or no answers at all: just a desire to keep questioning. Giving shape to the felt, the unknown.

I don't think rural populations in India have the same access to either the quality of education, knowledge, technology, different aspects of life that urban citizens are taking for granted. I thought of this as a problem, not as an opportunity. I felt that I was empowered enough to try and not solve, but at least try and contribute to the solution in some way.

anything handmade is about to become even more valuable

(Thanks to *cough cough* AI) and I love the tactile feel of the thick buttery paint on my brush as I take it to my canvas.  It feels like delicate sensory play. You won’t find that richness anywhere in hue, chroma and texture like you would with oil painting.

Music Producer, A & R

There is no music without experimentation. A purist approach is death. To all things, not just music. The moment one takes such an approach, the art form is placed in formaldehyde and locked away in a cabinet, a curiosity, a holy relic that has some vague interest only in that it was once living and breathing, once of some importance.
