The Diva's challenge gave all of us an opportunity to create a tile related to our home/ state/ country !

Now sitting here far ...thousands of miles away...from my beloved country India, this was something which I could instantly connect to...and what better way to depict India than to talk of  'AUM' !

'AUM' or 'OM'  in Sanskrit means ‘One who protects, sustains’. So that which sustains everything is AUM'.

It is the name of the Lord, who pervades your being,who pervades everything in the world.

So , 'AUM' was my tiny little effort in remembrance of my home...

Oh yes my friend Patricia from Colours dekor recently surprised me with this award

Patricia I am really touched ! Thanks !
