Shashwath Ghosh 2001
"I can always remember music around me. It kept me calm when I didn’t know what was going on. My body sways to the music. I can listen to my favourite songs over and over. I can play music, sing songs and I can draw it too. I can draw the feeling of it playing. My music in colours. You’ll understand when you see it. Come and look!"
