Watercolor on 300gsm HP paper
Inspired by a verse of a Punjabi Muslim Sufi poet, a humanist and a philosopher Bulleh Shah (1680- 1757 Punjab, Pakistan)
“You read to become all knowledgeable
But you never read yourself.
You run to enter temples and mosques
But you never entered your own heart.
Everyday you fight satan
But you never fight your own ego.
Bulleh Shah you try grabbing that which is in the sky
But you never get hold of what sits inside you.
Let the race end, my friend.”
