The paper I wrote as part of our research colloquium course. Would really appreciate comments, criticism, feedback and further discussion! Do take a look.

I never cease to be amazed when something begun with no expectations, unplanned and free, turns into a beautiful creative process.
A long-lost yearning to learn weaving suddenly surfaced again and the search led to Saori, a Japanese free-style hand-weaving technique that I decided to try. The lovely story about the origins of Saori is here.
I’m still looking for a way to properly describe the joy of all this intertwining colour goodness, and the thrill of running your hands over new textures that just magically spring to life. I’ll have more of this please!
Or should I say on Shreya’s mind…I made her some crochet flower hair-clips as a leaving-India-for-Germany parting gift :)
She’s the original punk-rocker, with flowers in her hair :)
Bring on the disco sparkle!
Presenting the official flag that Shreya and I quilted for the VC (Visual Communication) intro parade at this year’s Monsoon Fiesta.
Monsoon Fiesta is the annual madness mela at NID where the VC and ID (Industrial Design) students get pitted against each other, the kingmakers, and against those eternal underdogs, Foundy (Foundation, the first-year kids) and GN (Gandhinagar, the ‘other’ NID campus) :) it’s weeks of music and dance and creativity wars and rain, and of course, handmade patchwork flags!
