triveni spotlight: 13 March 2024

triveni spotlight A FEATURE EVERY ALTERNATE DAY! hosts: Vidya Shankar and Teji Sethi GUEST EDITOR: Iqra Raza 13 March 2024

breakfast together

the silence about things

that matter


Carol Raisfeld


As the world gets increasingly loud, not just aurally but visually as well (especially with the proliferation of technology and capitalisation of attention), I focus my selections around ‘intimacies’. Moments of quietude that involve a reckoning with intimacy in its various forms and along varied axes: with the self, with others, with material objects, with places, with thoughts and values, with the environment around us. To be intimate is to acknowledge the depth of silence, to allow it to settle into the self, and sometimes even to be overwhelmed by it. The ku I have chosen for this month explore what it means to be intimate in different ways.
