I believe that to love something and protect it, you have to understand it and feel it. Today I introduce to the world three girls who are fuelled with the curiosity that will hold them in good stead no matter what path they embark on. Selfishly, I hope the ocean will continue to mesmerise them.
These three girls are daughters of two of my friends. Fine women who have taken on the immense task of teaching their children about the beauty and secrets of the ocean. Thank you Shanu and Devini, you make my task so much easier. Once, not so long ago we were running around the school back garden, eating mangoes and haggling over the corner piece of chocolate cake. Some things have changed but thankfully, not everything. We were and remain bonded by our love for the outdoors (amongst other things).
Thank you for lending me your art and thoughts Amisha, Aniika and Maya.
