I asked, “Where is your home, beautiful moon?”
She said, “In the wreck of your heart so stone.
I am the sun shining into your ruin.

Kashish, an Urdu word, reflects an attraction, a deep desire and yearning for something; something which maybe never was.
Drawing inspiration from one of the richest ancient civilizations, Persia, Kashish resonates this longing for a lost place that used to be the home to magical folklores endorsing beautiful princesses, fierce as well as passionate and verses by Rumi validating their very existence. Anju Modi wanders off in an attempt to recreate and enumerate this excruciating yet embalming feeling through her collection, to a world which we all long to experience, again and again and again!
