Mukundanghri shares his artist journey: “I think I’m a right-brained person living in a left-brained world. My love for art rests in words. I’ve been journalling since I was 13 years old. The written medium has always been the easiest way to express my emotions. Words can paint pictures and transport us into new worlds in an instant. Oratory, theatre, and fine arts also give me room to express myself. But my heart is always nestled in the warm embrace of my journal, where my pen is my brush, each word a colour, and every page my canvas.
