I'm organising a meet-and-greet at Sabarimala in a few days. All fans invited.

Women keep away, though. I can't trust myself around you folks.

It's the height of ridiculousness that even in the brink of 2020 one has to explain how reservation is not a poverty alleviation program but about representation. This 'ignorance' is not organic, it's intentionally sustained by those who were in power all these years.

It's not like this distinction is so nuanced that people can't understand it. It's just that they don't want to understand it and more importantly, they don't want others to understand it.

I recently found out that there is a technique called Gyotaku which is a very interesting cross between printmaking and record keeping.

Gyotaku ( gyo “fish” + taku “rubbing”) is a traditional Japanese method of fish printing that originated in the mid-19th century as a way for fishermen to record the size and characteristics of their daily catches. THATS SOME LIQUID ART!!

The idea of printmaking organic materials came from a project I did earlier for Storyweaver called Food Monster written by Meenu Thomas.

I made impressions of many things and collaged them together.
