About the artwork: As the most “superior’ beings, mankind today is ruling the earth. However, though we are ‘surging’ towards astounding levels of advancement in all spheres, our responsibility towards the ‘lesser’ beings in our world remains horribly unfulfilled. We have encroached into the habitat, the homes of both acquatic as well as terrestrial life. One such is the marine Turtle. With their environments on the brink of destruction, it won’t be long before they are forced to step out of their natural surroundings in search of a place called home’.

Being in sync is easy when everything is going your way. The Real dance however, begins when turbulence hits your life, and you and your partner are caught unawares. The beats you hear, the rhythm that you now follow are probably not what you want, and don’t live upto your expectations. It’s at this point that a married couple can choose to either stick together and learn to do the ultimate dance in unison, or just head off looking for a new partner, and a new song.
Children are being mindlessly killed everyday and everywhere. The reasons may be manifold, but the root cause is just one- blindness. Blindness of understanding, blindness of purpose, and blindness of the eternal consequences for their actions. While one section of the world is actively involved in these killings, a whole section mourns and expresses anger and anguish at the atrocities.
However , because of their innocence, the ‘slain’ have found eternity in the arms of JESUS. As they rest their weary heads on HIS shoulder, HE takes away every fear, wipes away every tear, heals every scar and welcomes them to everlasting life in and with HIM.
“If I go up to the heavens, YOU are there; if I make my bed in the depths, YOU are there.If I rise on the wings of the dawn,if I settle on the far side of the sea,even there YOUR hand will guide me,YOUR right hand will hold me fast.” (Psalm 139:8-10)
GOD created everything and HE saw that it was good. Time after time, generation after generation, the image of GOD’ s creation changed due to Man’s own ideas on how to satisfy his needs and wants. Ideas have consequences! Due to the dissemination of man’s ideology ,GOD’ s beautiful creation got altered. The so-called lush development and luscious inventions are aggressive and selfish by their existence, as they force the BEAUTY of GOD’ s creation to vanish. The contribution of Trees to life is being minimized each moment. Animals are on the verge of extinction everyday. Species are getting lesser year after year. The purity of water is polluted from place to place. The Atmosphere is teeming with unwanted gases and poisonous chemicals. The list goes on….
Humans are in search of an even more comfortable life, and yearning to create a Utopian world by trying to reconstruct what GOD has made. As a result, the STRUCTURE of GOD’ s creation is in demolition, the ATTRACTIVENESS of GOD’ s handiwork is in deformity, the IMAGE of GOD’ s masterpiece is distorted, the identity of GOD’s creativity is in depravity, the VALUE of GOD’ s work is diminished.
“ If the foundations are destroyed, What can the righteous do?” Psalm 11:3
“I will lie down and sleep in peace, for You alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety. (Psalm 4:8)

KEEPER: Tiger, Tiger, Do not hear!
Disturbing sounds in the atmosphere.
Here Am I by your side,
Composing you a lullaby.
Relax and know you’re not ignored;
Don’t mind your harmonized snore.
TIGER: This moment, my ‘Sweetest Dream’,
YOUR voice,is a calming stream.
Don’t feel like getting up,
enjoying this rose petal tub.
Want to soak-in a little while,
Please! I beg an extra mile.
KEEPER: Sweet dream Tiger! feel my love,
Comfort and peace from above.
Enjoy the moment, rejoice to the full,
Inhale the aroma, embrace the cool.
Treasure the dream for it is real.
You must be tired, that’s what I feel.
