It's been 9 years since Zoya Akhtar’s Zindagi na milegi dobara released and i was introduced to the world of scuba diving. I knew what it was but i had never seen something so magnificent on screen before. I was awestruck by the diving scene
and when the poem-
"Pighlay neelam sa behta hua yeh samaan
Neeli neeli si khamoshiyaan
Na kahin hai zameen
Na kahin aasmaan
Sarsaraati huyi tehniyaan, pattiyaan
Keh rahi hain ki bas ek tum ho yahaan
Sirf main hoon meri saansein hain aur meri dhadkanein
Aur main sirf main
Apne honay pe mujhko yaqeen aa gaya"
played in the background post the dive all i wanted was to feel what Hritik
Roshan was feeling.
So last year, after graduating BCom, i did take a trip to Bali with one of my bestest
friends and tried scuba diving for the first time. I felt something I had never felt
before, a feeling i was chasing for 8 years.
It's been a year since i tried it and today i graduated from my 4 year art diploma
and this is the first painting i displayed for my finals and this is the story i told my
teachers when they asked me about it.
I can't wait for my next dive. Can't wait for this poem to feel real once again.
One of my favourite life experiences on canvas.
