Not just a piece of Paper !

I sketched this one long ago, with nothing specific in mind. I just wanted to do it. But to my surprise the intensity and serenity I wanted to reveal, somehow, I could manage it to some extent. In terms of technical parameters, there might be many flaws but for me it was not at all technical at all.          

Whenever I see this one now, I feel like it was not matter of Sketch for me, it was something else.  I could not define that what’s that something else was, whether it was prayer or tribute I don’t know. It gives me different emotion every time but one thing which is very prominent every time is the feeling of ‘Surrender’ and ‘Devotion’. I guess one of the strongest emotions which makes the existence more beautiful and enchanting.

When we put something on the paper or canvas, it does not matter how perfectly we carved it out technically. What satisfies the most is that how perfectly we came out of the feelings within us while putting is across the board. Once we touch a certain aspect of life no matter for how long, it makes us content. Still after so many years when I see this sketch, my heart feels with the emotions. It just draws me into a completely different land and I feel like I am doing it once again. But I know the same thing would come out or not is a big question. Not in terms of technicality but in terms of touching the life within me!

I did not discuss anything about this picture and the emotions related to it because this is something which could not be articulated even after so much time. But I believe one who can touch it can touch it beyond any articulation.

  1. Hi Tejasvita!

    I used to write alot myself, and your article made me a tad nostalgic. I feel the same way when I read my old creations. To me they are like fragments of time carefully stored, emotions bottled up on a piece of paper. Even though once anything is recorded on paper it becomes a tangible asset.l, but when one reads/ sees them tangible assets, he/she feels the intangibles that drove the making behind them.
    In your case also even though it is a different medium of expression, the operating term is same as mine, just a piece of paper, which it is not.

    A paper can be anything that you want it to be. It can be a boat/plane that takes you away somewhere, it can be a story that makes you live a different life. it can be a poem that makes you feel the way the writer perhaps did, a painting or absolutely nothing at all.

    Nicely written! Don’t give up on it.
