The Stolen Identity!

person behind fog glass

Traumatized by the disaster,

painful emotions besieged my core.

Beeping monitors and tubes injected,

kept me confined within the dreary hospital walls.

Surrounded by strangers fussing over me

I scanned for a familiar face, yet found none.

Paranoia left me fearing my own shadow.

Fate dealt a cruel blow,

realization dawned, that the accident had stolen

my memory, identity and my life from me!

The Shadow Artist!


Today Rahul is one of India’s leading shadow artist. Yes, you heard it right! His show “ Shadow Tales” is making waves throughout the world. Rahul had always been inclined towards creativity since a young age.

It all started a decade back .Just out of college, he was on a flight seated next to his little sister. To keep her amused he started creating shadows of different shapes with his hands, weaving them into a story. He fell in love with what he did. That’s when the thought struck him. He decided to become a shadow artist. It did take him a while to convince his parents, about his unusual choice of profession.

There has been no looking back since then. Today his shows run to a packed house. He creates musicals bringing his shadows to life, to a thundering applause!
