Illustration by Shubhshree Mathur

कोई आज़ाद पंछी नहीं
ना ही उसका कोई पंख

मैं तो वह छत पर बंधे
तार पर टंगा कपड़ा हूँ
जिस पर क्लिप
लगाए जाते हैं

हवा का झोंका
भरोसा दिला गया
कि आंधी आएगी
मुझे छुड़ाने

Shubhshree Mathur

Shubhshree is a storyteller and design educator from Kota, Rajasthan currently based in Bangalore. She is a tea lover, bibliophile and as outgoing as a houseplant. Being a professional illustrator, she predominantly uses visual and text together to create meaning and conversations from the mundane around her. Her personal context finds refuge in things like a clothes pin or bathroom slipper, and that is the kind of vernacular association that makes the writing awkwardly relatable. During her industry experience of 7-8 years, she has also delved into research, branding and writing. She hopes to write and make her own books someday!
