Mouni wrote, “Well, they are ready. The joy of getting back to something you loved doing as a little girl, unmatched! Drawing sir used to come home every Sunday & it used to be a 3 hour class, sometimes by yourself, sometimes with other students and friends, depending on how it needed to be done that particular week ... In Cooch Behar we didn’t have much , in every way, specially not much to entertain ourselves, so we danced & played outdoors picking up fallen branches making wooden muddy houses, painted & did pottery & made puppets and on a half day at school went to the Durga Protima makers parlour right opposite Baba’s office and sat watched clayed our hands & made little murtis of our own. Basically very primal & Very HAPPY! Going back to the basics, shall we (sic)?”

Further in the post, she has also thanked her friend Anuradha Khurana for inspiring her to get back to painting. “@anusoru thank you for asking me to paint after almost a decade, felt really good; the one in the middle s “Shiv ji meditating in the jungle,” it’s time for mine now, TATA (sic),” Mouni added in the caption.
