As always, let the wall painting begin with a storm gushing through white vows.

Our heart knows our inner dream. The universe knows our inner dream. However, our mind is may be lost to what our inner dreams are.

Interestingly, everyone around were being so involved with the wall painting, that this woman in particular- Mangala, suggested that i write the caption “Manasina Bhavanegale Kanasugalu” which means dreams are inner thoughts. which was so profound according to me.

” Dreams are inner thoughts”. ~within each of us, is an inner dream. The minute the thought is transformed into a dream, it becomes real. This just inspired me further, and that moment became the truth and hence the outburst. Dreams are very nature bound for me, to be one with nature. What is your inner dream?

next time you visit Sakeleshpur in Karnataka, visit the Planter’s club wall.

When i woke up the morning i had to paint, i realized how i dwell in my dreams, and dedicated my painting to DREAMS.

“I dreamt of that day…Of a sky that looked down,
And smiled at my plight.. I tried too hard,
But I only tried.
I want that Dream back, and so does the sky..
I want that day..
And so does my Smile.”

Lovely poetry by Siddhanth, THANK YOU

As always, the wall was flooded with posters, which were scraped and removed by us and white washed!

Then, I started sketching… had already thought of a concept one day in advance, so that I don’t go blank.

I meant that a woman should not be scared of speaking out and usually she does not speak up for herself, and that’s where the problem lies.

I had sooo many people coming, taking pictures and talking about art, loads of them, just standing and staring… It was a memorable experience 🙂 But these two cuties insisted that I should take a pic with the painting, because they loved the flowers 🙂
