It took me so long to look at the object through its shadow.
.
.
The earliest I can remember was when I was 9 and in an art class at school in Delhi.
I was drawing a cat in a boot,a picture I had come across,
and as was my method of drawing at the time,I focused with all concentration on individual lines,and how they were landing against each other.never the whole picture.
just one line in relation with another line at a time.
but for some reason the picture didn't seem at all like my copy
and I erased and redrew but it was of no use..
that's when I noticed the shadow of the cat on the boot in the original,and then that of my drawing and saw two absolutely different amoebic objects.
and that was it.
It was my first hoist into exploring.

And it still helps :)
