Many would think that being away from home for five years (most of my teenage life) would be tough , but for me the years after leaving Welham got me home sick sometimes, because this beautiful place was Home away from Home. So happy @kathanika_art did a series on our school and I was one of the lucky ones (and the first) to receive this as a gift from her! #kathanikaart #studiokathanika #welhamseries #Repost @kathanika_art with @get_repost ・・・ Just a little walk down memory lane :) #welham #sketchseries2 #blackwhiteandblue

A sneak peek of the series up this weekend. This time its all about the people who make Kolkata the 'City of Joy'. They are so effortlessly a part of this city that their presence may often go unnoticed, but without them this city wouldn't have the soul that everyone unknowingly connects to. Through Kathanika art, artist Megha Jalan will try to tell the stories of these people, who against all odds have managed to survive and be a very important part of Kolkata. #kathanikaart #stories #peopleofkolkata #penandwatercolours #painting #art #collectiveshowcase #fun #chaitown

Do you think some things break for a reason ? I do. I think they break to show us the strength and beauty which we never knew existed. Strength, to survive and the beauty of the scars. And with time...no one will ever know that something had even broken. #lessonslearnt #throughart #stories #ceramics #hiddenbeauty #clay #reasons #life #kathanikaart
