Behind the Scenes
Hello People! My name is Nisha Shenoy and this is me in monochrome. As much as I love the vibrant hues, my soul has a particular affinity towards the night, and the shades that come closest to it. I wonder if my mother had some premonition and hence named me Nisha or the name simply rubbed off on me. Her inspiration came from Rakhee Gulzar in Doosra Aadmi – the last movie she watched in her pregnancy. Quite a modern name – she believed – for the late seventies, for a daughter born in a traditional Konkan home nestled in a small village not too far from the Arabian Sea. It was a land that dwelled on the tales of ancient wisdom, rich in its traditions and super-natural beliefs etching a lasting impression on me as a child. Even when we moved to different places for education or work, a part me was still lingering in the alleys of the old, rusty village I had spent the first six years of my life. I didn’t realise until much later in my life that a part of me always wanted to tell stories, a trait I must have inherited from my paternal grandfather who told me numerous stories of our lineage.
So, here I am, making an attempt to keep the storyteller in me, alive!
