In response to the lockdown, at my rented place in Delhi I am sleeping, sitting, eating, talking, blogging, dreaming, and preparing myself for the future on a bed made of clay. The language of my body on the mitti is also about how I develop a new intimacy between the skin of the mitti and my body, and the edible essentials on my mitti-ka-bister. As an artist, as a body, as an animal who needs food and shelter to exist, I perform, I write, I live on my mitti-ka-bister. My blog is vital limb of my clay-bed, an urgent statement before I scream.
