Pen and Ink, Collage on Hand-Made Khadi Paper
Part of the John Hays Special Collections Library 

The books are dedications to the different sectors of society who become inevitable casualties of political warfare and terrorism. The books however, outline different episodic accounts as recalled by me, in mere fragments, of the terrorist attacks in Mumbai on the 26th of November, 2008. 
Each book has been made on handmade paper which I purchased from a paper mart which is near Taj: one of the locations of the terrorist attack. I haven’t been to the Taj Mahal Hotel in the last 12 years. 
Book 1 is a dedication to children all over the city, the country, and this world, who were compelled to learn the meaning of terrorism at a tender age.
