Writers & Thinkers


A portrait illustration series that celebrates a few of my favourite writers and thinkers.

“I took a deep breath and listened to the old brag of my heart. I am, I am, I am.”
Sylvia Plath

"She was the tree, she was the soil, she was the earth.”
Anita Desai

I play with words, hoping that some combination,
even a chance combination, will say what I want.”

Doris Lessing

"जहां भी आज़ाद रूह की झलक पड़े, समझना वह मेरा घर है।"
Amrita Pritam

"सपने देखने का अधिकार, पहला मौलिक अधिकार होना चाहिए।"
Mahasweta Devi

"आदमी बुलबुला है पानी का
और पानी की बहती सतहा पर
टूटता भी है डूबता भी है
फिर उभरता है, फिर से बहता है
न समुंदर निगल सका इस को
न तवारीख़ तोड़ पाई है
वक़्त की हथेली पर बहता
आदमी बुलबुला है पानी का "

“If you don't understand, ask questions. If you're uncomfortable about asking questions, say you are uncomfortable about asking questions and then ask anyway."
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

“One hand, five homes. A lifetime in a fist.”
Jhumpa Lahiri

“In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer."
Albert Camus
