However so far she may winds up from those antiquated riverbanks, her memory, her craft, and for sure her exceptionally being - these are perpetually made up for lost time in the thought of interminable, consecrated stream.

Individuals and countenances, the surge of sounds, the impossibly old blending with the untarnishedly new - every one of the rhythms and rhymes of India: this is the wellspring of her identity. She spills out of this source, however has turned into the waterway - evolving, developing, streaming.
