Pardes/ Seeking Identity/ Exploring Roots is a visual depiction of thoughts and emotions of Maia, who is of Indian descent, but has been born and raised in the western world. It portrays her quest to align with her South Asian roots, shed inhibitions of the past, and anchor on to a renewed self-identity that is part Western and part Indian.

As people continue to migrate for study and work, within the country to somewhere afar, lot of people are alienated from where they belong. Weddings are a time when there is an urge to connect to one’s own culture, to one’s roots and so to say, wear it on their sleeve.
