I have been busy coordinating, curating and ideating this vision of mine for the past 5 to 6 months. It's been a humungous task, one that has definitely filled me with immense satisfaction.

Repercussions means consequences or impact or outcome of an action. It could mean from anything subjective to objective, from social, political to family or within oneself...from personal life to what’s happening around the world. There are lot of implications from home to community, from nature to environment, from relationships to media, from de-constructing myths/tales/legends to regions... Everything we do has a rippling effect. Even the slightest action, whether consciously or unconsciously, brings about a repercussion even though we do not realize it.
This is what I was busy with for the past 5 months. Expecting all your support, cooperation, love and prayers, we move forward. Please do join us.
Edit: PS: Year 2021
At that point in my life, i.e. in 2016 I was diffident in using the term "Curator" and so sufficed with "Co-ordinator" while in actuality I had done every task single-handedly from scratch and I wasn't even sure that I would be able to pull it off well. I wished I had a team to help me with. But God's grace and blessings from all the well-wishers I did and I am grateful for that.
