7 days of thought has been a project to amalgamate imagery with ideas. These images have been captured by Kavi Kumar, a friend and brilliant photographer (his work was even showcased at the Louvre).
Why did I think of this?
Since 2011 I have been collecting quotes, like my life depended on it. The real reason has been this quote “People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.” by Zig Ziglar. Vacationing in Jaipur’s winter may not have allowed for daily bathing; I am from Bombay, can not stand anything below 15 degrees. However, the need for motivation always remains.
Following are the original untouched photos, with quotes below. To check out the full series, click here.
