This series urges you to explore yourself and celebrate the ultimate state of being; free. Embracing yourself with every atom of your being. Waking up in a disturbing dystopia where bigotry, race politics and animosity are bringing out aspects of us that is threatening the order that was created for species to coexist in an ecosystem that is deteriorating slowly and steadily. This series urges you to stop, breathe and love. Tolerate and accept yourselves first in order to embrace the world for its diversity. The beauty of this series lies in the modesty of its concept. Incoherent ideals of beauty, definitions of all that is wrong stemming from fear and cowardice labelled as “doing the right thing;” amidst this rat race, we’ve forgotten to be grateful for all that we are. Women pricking themselves to look like Donald Duck clones, men chasing the green and governments tapping into fright. The world seems to be dizzy in its self created mayhem. This series urges you to be kind to yourself for you are gold just as you are. Begin that revolt within until you’ve fallen completely in love with you! 

“I read banned books.
I swam the sea in moonlight.
I broke the curfew and explored your taboos.
You reprimanded me, exercised your punishment and authority.
I started a revolution, just so I could be and embrace all of me. Love.

 

He tainted you. She called you names.
They destroyed you with all their games.
You rose like the Phoenix from their destruction, embrace and celebrate yourself.
Your resurrection. Love. 

 

Break free from the conformities of society.
Break free from your inhibitions.
Dear soul, you’re destined for greatness!
Embrace yourself. Love.”
- Akshita Gandhi
