After completing the previous Tagore-inspired artworks, the AP Studio students were given a new challenge - to create artworks inspired by Tagore excerpts with little to no imagery. They looked at examples of abstract artwork before beginning. Again, they drew the excerpt randomly from a hat.
Praise shames me, for I
secretly beg for it.
Life is given to us, we earn it by giving it.
The Perfect decks itself in beauty for the love
of the Imperfect.
Wrong cannot afford defeat but
I cannot choose the best.
The best chooses me.
It is the little things that I leave behind for my loved
ones, - great things are for everyone.
The best does not come alone.
It comes with the company of the all.
I carry in my world that flourishes
the worlds that have failed.
We come nearest to the great when we are
great in humility.
Never be afraid of the
moments - thus sings the
voice of the everlasting.
We read the world wrong and say that it deceives us.
To be outspoken is easy when you
do not wait to speak the complete truth.
The mind, sharp but not broad,
sticks at every point but does
The Great walks with the Small without fear.
The Middling keeps aloof.
