'As history has it, conflicts for ideologies result in anarchy which can never be erased completely or repented for by merely erecting a sculpture such as this - on the right hand side in the background (Bathani Tola massacre, 1986). A Peaceful utopic space of existence has always been overlapped by acts of violence, tolerance, oppression, counter-violence and vice versa. Now what baffles my mind is whether this disruptive and anarchic landscape with skeletal remains is after all the site that would help the future greenery and utopic state to bloom in.'
