These collages contain drawings and personal notes from the journals I maintained during the travelling arts project U/R Unreserved: a collaborative project with theatre artists from across social, regional and political boundaries; an attempt to start conversations on identity in trains, schools, colleges; in rural, urban, and liminal spaces.

The journey began from Bengaluru (Karnataka) to Irinjalakuda (Kerala), Dhemaji (Assam), Srinagar (Kashmir) and back again.
