“Art can permeate the very deepest part of us, where no words exist.”

As a mother I can surely tell you one thing, these are Ansh’s emotions and unsaid words which most of us are blessed with. Art is his way of expression, a source through which he vents out his emotions, desire, excitement, everything.
14 year old Ansh, found his inner voice in strokes of brush. Within the space of a frame, Ansh tries to build a world that is undeniably unique and different from the world we live in. His canvas is his playground, he plays with colours and every stroke expresses his emotions.
Though he cannot speak, Ansh’s works hold blissful conversations on his behalf.
“Ansh’s vocabulary and language skills are very limited impaired due to autism. As they say if God closes one door it shows light through other Ansh has found his calling in the world of Art. He has had 43 exhibitions in three years of his Art journey and have sold artwork all over world.” Anshul, Ansh’s mother
Names and Numbers
by Sherin Mary Zacharia
Nowhere was a sign!
They walked away carefree
Impending danger unattended
Escapes, returns with vengeance.
Floods rise silent
Names of cyclones
Names of vessels gone down
Names on tombstones
Clear; in the rains.
Walls painted new
Of community kitchens
Smoke, rises, names of homeless
Mud, rocks, soil
Graphs in many colours
World in lines and bars
Screaming the sea arrives
Waves usher salt, more tears
Waters tested; calculations made
Loses recorded; percentages varied
World knew itself in
Names and numbers.

Colours, music and movement are essential to Aniruddha’s life, and they are reflected in everything he does.

Video “Saving Mother Nature” by Lavanya Iyer
Lavanya Iyer Storyteller, sings, draws, and paints. All her creative works are self-motivated and mostly around Hindu mythology. She does it based on the stories I narrate to her on daily basis.
I asked her to say a poem and she said these. So, it’s not preplanned as I never plan any video with her. She does good only without any planning or any kind of practice. As she is still small, I don’t try to change her words or style and I don’t intend to do it in future as well unless its anything wrong. I hope you can accept her work for submission.
In Peace, Manju, Lavanya’s mother.
