Inspired from my trip to Pune, India, and from the Mahabharata.
Thanks to Vasu & Lalita.

Sattwa, Rajas, Tamas,

Goodness, passion, darkness.

Three levels of life itself.


Religion, Wealth, Pleasure,

Past, present, future.

Diverse paths toward the same ending.


Joyous, painful, forgiving,

Remembering, foresight, reliving.

All paintings of life’s reflection.


Sunrise, sunset, twilight,

Ignorance, conviction, incite.

Expression of your life is your art.
