Namrata came back from london where she has been editing for a month and brought back goodies. Beautiful flame coloured le creuset enamel-ware, A lovely Beatles mug an amazing postcard with the picture of the artist Yayoi Kusama. Alongside were these pretty Japanese sweets from an Asian sweet shop.
It’s so strange to think that you hold in your hand something made in a land far far away … Like these sweets that travelled all the way from Japan to London to Mumbai. I can’t help but think of their life till they entered our mouths to fulfill their destiny with people who can’t pronounce their name….the many people, spaces, things that touched them. The seasons they saw. Fights they witnessed. Tears they heard in various tongues, laughter in various colours..
