Kaamadhenu in Turkey
So an article about “2 weeks with 200 women & the little yellow men” was published in the Mid day news paper earlier this year.
Here is the link for the article
I like at the end of the day how it got connected with the issue of beef ban in Maharashtra. None the less worth a read and well written article.
“2 WEEKS WITH 200 WOMEN”, is my personal interactions with cows. as a volunteer in an organic dairy farm last year I had the joy of interacting with these beautiful women through their ups and downs.I always believed that cows represent abundance, they are the givers and hence represent mother’s energy. Every evening after the days work i would sketch and write down one experience or sub conscious interaction i had on that particular day. My mind was a blank slate when i was making these sketches.
After one year when i notice them i am discovering messages hidden between my lines. Women are the wise car- rier of ethereal nectar gifted to them by the moon , she is the nature herself selfless and ever giving . The little yellow men were born out of desire that exists in each and every moment. As little as they are, they make life worth it, they are the god of small things, they are the joy that exists in every moment. These men are the carriers of light playful and carefree.They milk the women to gain their spiritual knowledge through many radical and unorthodox rituals. The coming together of the two is very innocently controversial be- cause one is forever constant and the other ever changing. Their psychic union gives birth to that which is not.
Where it all began: Wild Kaamadhenu
The story of elephant tortoise and the little yellow men
Down the rabbit hole
The big little yellow man
March of the yellow masters
Evrem, the holy calf and the matchstick man

Designed and Illustrated by Mukund IyerFinally its out my first Illustrated book written by my dear sister Judith. The book is called ” Masal Terapi” ( story therapy) and it has stories collected from middle east and some from other parts of the world.
Each story is followed by some insights, some questions that you can try and answer by yourself in your personal journal, some practice that you start following and some quotes related to the story. She has defined this book as a wise teacher you go to when you have a question.
As i started my process of making illustrations for the stories, i realised that its not just some sketch that i am making but its more about what kind of visual story do i want the reader to see. It gave me a wider understanding of what illustrations are capable of and how it can change the entire experience of the story.
This entire book was made on gift culture and i thank Judith for giving me this amazing experience.
Originally written in english eventually was translated in turkish. Published in turkey by Dogan Novus publishing house, Istanbul. She is looking for a publishing house to print it in english.
Which parts of İstanbul is your favourites?
I love Isteklal street for it represents the melting pot and the order in chaos of the city in a smaller scale.
Where in İstanbul do you feel good and feel like you belong there and why?
The humid sea makes me feel at home, walking along the sea eating misir (corn) satisfies all my senses. And the other place i love is being with mother’s of my friends who take such good care as the land is described ” Anadolu ”
What do you see when you look at İstanbul? Where do you see the city from?
When i see the city from a foreign artist point of view I see stories of creative revolution.
How would you describe İstanbul and how and with whom do you experience the city?
I travel istanbul with the curiosity of a child, to me it represents the quote
” The Only Thing That Is Constant Is Change.” – Heraclitus
What are the things you like and don’t like about İstanbul?
I love cig Kofte and i don’t like streets where i don’t get cig kofte practically nowhere
