Student Narrative

This book is a meaningful, visual representation of my sister's 'Project Nishtha' in the form of an accordion which tells the story of her project’s ability to extend a flower's life by converting it into compost. Guided by illustrations and text, each page depicts a stage of the life that a flower undergoes through her project. The cover is handmade, with the cloth from Goddess Saraswati's garment, with connotations of spiritual protection and rejuvenation.

This book promotes sustainability both physically and in deeper meaning: it was made out of waste materials - recycled paper and packaging, and ink that is 100% organic and eco-friendly, and the story tells us about ecology and environmental sustainability through converting flowers into organic compost used to grow gardens.
