It takes only a little bit of nourishment for a single seed to grow to become a delicate plant, a beautiful flower or a huge tree! Most other things in Nature grow similarly to their optimum self from a zero….humans too are born with a clean slate without any inhibitions, reservations, judgements or sanskars and every seed has the potential to reach its highest form. Butterflies shall come like fairies to celebrate this reaching of the heights.
From the series titled, “Tabula Rasa…for a new beginning”!
Tabula Rasa in Latin means a clear slate, and originates from the Roman tabula or wax tablet used for notes, which was blanked by heating the wax and then smoothening it, to give a tabula rasa. In Psychology, it relates to the theory that at birth the (human) mind is a “blank slate” without rules for processing data, and that data is added and rules for processing are formed solely by one’s sensory experiences. And so in order to reach for his goals and desires, despite the setbacks that one has faced, one needs to clear his mind to reach a tabula rasa and start afresh. In this series, the artist has exhibited pictures those describe the meaning of ‘Tabula Rasa’, ‘before it is reached’ and ‘after it is reached’ in the human mind.
