“Creativity is my euphoric love affair; my medicine, it is a self-imposed vow, a dedication, a stampede to my every vital core. It is the quest to know and understand myself better, a way by which I can communicate using a language that is all my own. I empty out to fill up again, I go to a place where I meet myself and I dance the eternal dance! I thrive on the process, of getting lost in the journey. The most important thing has always been the journey itself, for it is during the journey that the creative soul’s gates are unlocked and only the purest of truths flood out.”
