This artists' book is a coming together of two view points, mine and my fathers. 'My father said: and Me: set of text is my perception of what he said verbally and non verbally and how I responded to them. My father had left a diary in which he had recorded his views about me in Kannada I found them in his cupboard after his demise and I have used those lines as in between text. He has written about my high school days, my intense desire to join art school and how he struggled to support me in those days and how proud he was of my achievements. Which leads to two parallel narratives unfolding through these pages, they converge and diverge at various points.
