All through, my works can be seen as an investigation about my self. It can be also seen as journeys undertaken through various terrains outside and inside by me. I have often felt a sense of withdrawal from my surroundings. This withdrawal has helped me to see the world outside me with a cynical eye without emotionally getting overpowered by situations and circumstances. This also helps me to introspect my self critically. I feel this “othering” of one’s own self also reflects the contemporary social condition of alienation. Modernity due to its stress on material progress and dystrophic achievements has removed meaning from existence. We are like ‘beings’ without any ‘essence’. This existential predicament however has been manipulated by power to further alienate the people from themselves by making them desire what they don’t need but still spend their entire life desiring those.
