The shadows in our lives come in both benevolent and malicious nature.  


The benevolent shadows, with the coating of serenity calms the mind, enthrals the body. Some such shades become a symbol of absolute dependence and thus protection against all adversity. The shadows through the day indicates the sway of time. Tired, exhausted, struggling people are always on the lookout for these kind shadows where they can find shelter.


Sometimes, shadows come dark and malicious, giving deep sorrow and shattering life completely. Shadows then becomes another name for terror, chasing us at all times, even as nightmares in our sleep...

Artist's statement
It only takes an unexpected and small incident to change the course of life, like the apple falling on Newton’s head leading to the discovery of the law of gravity. Fortunately it was an apple, and not a coconut!!!
