Gatherers






We are gatherers,
the ones who pick up sticks and stones
and old wasp’s nests fallen by the
door of the barn,
walnuts with holes that look like
eyes of owls,
bits of shells not whole but lovely
in their brokeness,
we are the ones who bring home
empty eggs of birds
and place them on a small glass shelf
to keep for what? How long?
It matters not. What matters
Is the gathering,
the pockets filled with remnants
of a day evaporated, the traces of
certain memory, a lingering smell,
a smile that came with the shell.

Another Cover


There is one art director who absolutely knows what to do with the styles of different illustrators. She brings out the best in each of us. This cover was particularly challenging since we were figuring things out as I went along with her suggestions. I wasn't quite sure what she wanted or had in mind and after many attempts at getting it right I wasn't even sure if what I had done had sufficed. I spent sleepless nights.Then when the cover design with my illustration arrived in my inbox, I was pleased by how striking it was. It is therefore with great pleasure that I am showing it off over here.


The Most Beautiful Gift You Can Give, Ever

I swear to God, if I were someone else, I would have bought a copy of this print. I cannot get over how good the quality is and how beautiful they've turned out. I am just so happy when I look at them.
Many many thanks to Honeycomb printers and to this wonderful artist for telling me about these printers who made this possible.

In Iceland


I received this charming email from Iceland thanking me upon receiving the prints. 


Halló Priya,
the prints just arrived, thank you so much! Such a nice surprise! They are just wonderful. Our humble rural postman was very impressed by the number of stamps, he never delivered anything coming from that far away 
Thank you again and all the best,
T

The Village



…he started to whisper. ‘It’s because all the images inside our heads have come from the world of ideas. That’s where we really belong, you know - not down here…where time snaps at everything we love.’

Prettiest House

While returning from the Santhal village, we stumbled at this house at stopped and stared. A young woman who lived here came cycling inside the garden and allowed us to look around a bit. She said the house belonged to her parents. Her father was a sculptor and she was a student at Shantiniketan.
