Journey of my emotions

A human mind is a complex warfare of emotions. It is what deciphers us from the nonliving, these emotions make us spiritually and mentally humane and require constant healing. 
This semester was a rollercoaster ride full of emotions. From my love for food, the happiness of learning a new traditional narrative craft,  admiration for the works of Studio Smitamoksh to unraveling the emotions through curating various nuances of an exhibition, I have experienced it all.
