“There was a moment of horrification in my life when I heard about the animosity between different religions from a friend of mine. Since I had a mixed-up upbringing, where I grew up with Afghans, Pakistanis, and Indians and celebrated all traditions and festivals.”- Sangeetha Kowsik
Being a proud Tamil-American, I was never exposed to any form of animosities between children where Islamism and Hinduism are intertwined in unity.
In 2019 I had an opportunity to do a calligraphy exhibition titled “Allah Swami,” the reason behind the same was my stand to end this animosity, to not pass this hatred to the coming generations, to bring a difference in our society.
