In the artist’s own words: “A melody arises from the clinging chains that holds the train cars together and the roaring of the engine compartment. As I vigorously walk from the back of the train to the front, only stopping to peer through the doors at the abyss of sceneries that lies beyond, I come to meet my savior, my symbol, my truth - Anjali and she is five. She doesn’t speak to me, but she smiles at me, inducing in me a torrent of emotions representing her pure youth. She gave me hope and resolved my pursuit of happiness. Happiness was not something to be pursued, but something to be realized.”
