“Difficulties are meant to rouse not discourage. The human spirit is to grow strong by conﬂict.”
– William Ellery
The body of knowledge – is a book that feeds the profundity of my knowledge… I enjoy absorbing information – and there is no boundary to education. However, learning outside confined institutions gave me – more freedom to develop my theory… Through my experience – educational organisations – lacked the creativity of learning – and I never got on with the politics around intellectualism – it cluttered my thought process with unnecessary obstacles. Education for me is a lifelong experience and therefore, I am continually learning…
I have two very important assistance who are persistently aspiring me to learn and understand our subsistence… My two beautiful children Tanish and Tanishka advocate the laws of madness and always remind me that theory is one thing – practical is another matter…! Being a mother has changed the way I view the world – it’s amazing how these crazy innocent creatures can smile – all your worries and barriers can come down instantly – through them, I can see the simplest gestures – and how sincere a smile can be… as adults we forget… the power of a smile – doesn’t need to be an incentive for a reason of self-gain, a smile goes a long way in making this world a better place. They are a bundle of joy.
However, I started writing on the body of knowledge – when I was at University. I studied Interior- architecture, and always centred around the world of Art… Therefore, writing this theory was different – trying to express using words instead of a paintbrush was challenging. Although, I have always had a profound passion for creativity.
After I left University, I made an unconventional decision to write this book – it went past normal scenarios, but this is where my heart was – and I was going to pursue this venture at any cost… and 17 years later I came to the end of this expedition – I learned how complicated simplicity can be – and was it worth it? All I can say – what an adventure into the realms of identity, resistance, and self- control… Time and circumstances don’t define us – Who we are and how we endure – is our subsistence…!
