Graphite on Strathmore 8″x11″

I am a loving and caring person.

But if my loving and caring, do not please you at all,

Can love and care, simply be just a

gentle whisper to awaken your quiescent emotion? 

No matter what,

I still remain the same. 

(This micro-poetry is inspired by a short documentary film.)

These are GREAT Women and we all SALUTE their artistry, ingenuity, courage and power.

However, on the flip side of the scene, I wanted to turn my camera around, and spotlight women we all encounter in our daily lives. These are women who are not famous. They are the unsung heroes of our everyday lives. These are the…

-women who worked in retail and deli stores;
-women drivers;
-women bartenders and baristas;
-women working in offices;
-women who worked on hospitals and restaurants etc…
-women who devoted their time taking care of their family and children;
-women who stayed whole day, under the rain and sunshine vending along the sidewalk to earn money and support their families;
-women who worked as caregivers taking care of other peoples’ children and aging parents;
-women who clean other people’s houses;
-women who are unfortunate and lived in shelters;
-ordinary women we see on the subway reading books,
-young women who work and study at the same time;
-women immigrants who left their families, thousands of miles from across the globe to seek greener pasture, to support their loved ones back home;
You name it…

For these women, I SALUTE and I Embrace their Struggles as they move forward to achieving Goals their DREAMS. I am Proud of You!

Happy International Women’s Day!

“You’re My Angel”


This composition was inspired by a song “You Raised Me Up” rendered by Josh Groban. Life isn’t always joy and happiness. One has to experience the opposite of it. There is always a reason why man has to encounter both joy and sorrow, happiness and grief, excitement and serenity, anxiety and tranquility, strength and weakness and so on…..It only takes an ability to deal with it. A song, a poetic composition, a painting or any kind of inspiration will keep us going through.

You raised me up… I knew I am weak,
when anguish came one day,
nowhere to go, no one to speak;
kept it to myself, hid it inside;
from affliction, salvation I seek.

You raised me up…
when I was at my lowest time,
I ponder alone in solitude;
then your song permeates the air ;
with your enchanting voice, I hear.

You raised me up…
