“Non-fiction stories nourish me,
Crime thrillers keep me going”

This piece is from an experimental independent album of visual poems called ‘VOETRY’. It is a blend of spoken poetry and cinematic imagery. ‘Philosophically Yours’ is an experimental and progressive album of 5 different voetries, the first being Chehre (or faces).

Clothes are not important, but not that unimportant either। क्यूँकि कपड़े हमें ढँकते हैं, जैसे हम ढँकते हैं मन के नंगेपन को दुनियादार चेहरों से; I wish us animals to re-achieve our rooted animality and naked faces again . . .
