Inspired by the invisible darning of the Rafoogars from her hometown of  Najibabad, Priya Ravish Mehra, has evolved a unique creative practice based on the philosophical notions of repair and darning. She valiantly extends this rafoogari, beyond that of re-crafting a damaged fabric. Aiding her battle against cancer, she uses this art and it’s characteristic flawless mending, to consciously undergo the act of ‘darning’ through self-knowledge, experiencing its power in her own life.

Viewing art can be akin to a pilgrimage, and 'Sensorium' at the Sunaparanta, Goa Centre for the Arts, showcasing works of Reena Saini Kallat, Shreyas Kale, Parul Thacker, Desmond Lazaro, Riyas Komu, Gigi Scaria, Jittish Kallat and many others, certainly took me into deeper reaches of one’s existence and beyond…..

In this touching memoir, Singh pays tribute to her grandmother whose passion for knitting clothes for every child born into her family became a marker of endless love and compassion. Suzy Singh narrates the tale of her Nani-ma’s knitting  which  motivated her, not only to start knitting herself, but inspiring in her evolution as a healer.

‘Personal Threads’ is an endeavour to read our histories (both political and personal) as the interconnected pieces of a quilt – each one’s individual threads sewn together to form a larger picture. Telling our stories is a means to locate ourselves and who we are within the folds of their narrative. And often, who we are and what we do, emerges from the people, things and places that played some role in our past. We may claim different nationalities and religions but the DNA of our lives is complex and far from unconnected.
