As the title suggests this work shows hope. Lanterns for me are a symbol of hope. "Umeed" is the hindi word for hope. Today in the world where we are becoming so advanced and developing in every field, there is one field in which we are degrading ourselves. i.e. humanity. There is so much negativity in the world these days, humanity is on the verge of diminishing. Watching everyone becoming so selfish and self centered makes my soul very sad and heartbroken. But somewhere i have this hope that world would be a better place again and there would be love and peace.
This work is done in intaglio process and medium is aquatint and etching.
