Thank You All

My heart swells with pride and gratitude and this blog gives me the perfect opportunity to thank everyone who has supported me in my endeavor. Amrit had a very successful exhibit at the India Habitat Centre, all thanks to Merry Barua and her entire team for promoting the cause of autism with such passion and dedication. Heartfelt thanks to all who showed appreciation for Amrit's work and those who went a step ahead to buy her work. All my friends, known and unknown who took the time to visit the venue and shared their thoughts with me. I would like to seize this opportunity to thank two very special people, Anil Goswami, Amrit's tutor and mentor at Pathways School, Noida and Pabitro Pal, who has selflessly guided her at every step. These two gentlemen have hand in hand worked tirelessly with Amrit, guiding her and shaping her creativity which has resulted in loads and heaps:) of appreciation for her work. Thank you all for being so wonderful.

“Art can permeate the very deepest part of us, where no words exist.” ― Eileen Miller, The Girl Who Spoke with Pictures: Autism Through Art

It's been long since I have been able to update this blog. A lot has happened in our lives since the last update. Amrit continues to surprise us with her maturity. She now depicts perfect symptoms of a moody young adult. She loves her own private space. She has become quite tech savvy and on her insistence we got her a tab which has become her constant companion and these days she loves to hear all Mr. Bachhan's songs though Farhan Akhtar's Zindagi na Milegi Dobara remains her all time favourite. I can't recall the number of times we have seen the movie together and each time both Amrit and the movies teaches us something more about life. Yes, we won't get this life again and hence we should be able to live each moment of our life. I am posting some of her latest work. Hope it brings in as many colours in the lives of people who like her work.
