Rajpur Road, Dehradun

The rivers are drying
The Earth quakes every now and then
We build dams on the rivers.

I see dry mountains
With new trees
Protected areas.

Been in Dehradun, Uttarakhand, India for the last few weeks. Foothills of the Himalayas.
Visiting cousins and looking for a new space for the pottery studio.
Felt the end of a phase and the beginning of another.

Been staying in this beautiful old house surrounded by trees on the edge of the city.
Rajpur Road, Shehanshahi.

As a ceramic artist and teacher.
I make my little effort towards the environment.
Using and saving electricity, water, re-cycling clay, using food-grade chemicals.

Sharing some photographs and links to some special organizations/events I came across –
