Malkha in the matrix of geometry
Spoken for
A person is a person through other people.

I am because we are.

I am an accumulation of all of you.

What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead. - James 2:14-17

I call this dupatta Ubuntu because I believe it offers potential to experience joy. Joy is presence of a settled heart. Made not to “wow” the observer, but gently walk in. Gentle enough without a sound. Only to bring joy to some eyes that lingered on it a little longer.
