“I soon realized that no journey carries one far unless, as it extends into the world around us, it goes an equal distance into the world within.” – Lillian Smith

Leave the familiar for a while.
Let your senses and bodies stretch out
Change rooms in your mind for a day. – Hafez Shirazi


With this thought in mind, we did a little exercise. The objective of the exercise was to get participants to travel to places, times, experiences they have had ..triggered by being brought into contact with various objects that were placed before them.

Everyone closed their eyes. They were presented with different objects that they could touch, taste, smell but not see. At the end of the exercise they shared the memories the objects evoked.


The objects used were – sand, seashells, pebbles, salted peanuts, popcorn, salt water, a rakhi, marbles and a wooden spinning top (Gattu).
