Milan Rai: The Butterfly Effect

Milan Rai: The Butterfly Effect

Jun 14, 2018-- "One day I was thinking, and suddenly, I noticed this tiny butterfly in my studio. I was drawn to it and managed to capture it. I'd heard a Native American proverb that said if you capture a butterfly and whisper your wish and let it go, it will take your wish to the greater spirit and your wish will come true. So I made a wish and without expecting my wish to come true, I just let it go. That was my first learning -- letting it go. When I did that, suddenly something felt so light in me. And butterflies kept coming and visiting. Sometimes they sat on my forehead. They kept coming and reminding me of the power of simplicity. So I said to myself, 'I don't have to do complex things. Make it simple and be very honest with your work and don't expect anything from it.' So after doing all this, one day I designed a butterfly shape and pinned it in a public space."
