When I came out I realized how different was the world inside the campus. I couldn’t see either one teacher or student using the mobile phone. They were people who found their happiness in art. Artform was a meditation for them where they found their peace and joy. It felt like a folklore- once upon a time, there was a Gurukula for arts on the banks of a river Nila, where teachers and students lived together in harmony dedicating their life to arts.
