It all started with a desire to do something with the Gujarati Script, which I felt had not been experimented with and explored much. I’ve always seen Gujarati literature in body copy size, this is what initially motivated me to express and present the script in a fun and interesting way.
His haikus remain as relevant to the current era as they were three decades ago, they are a delightful reflection on human behaviour – some portraying death as an honourable event, others a reminder of finding content in what one has; still, others are instances of daily life served with a dose of sarcasm.
