She and Beo Zafar recently launched their book “The Dreamer Awakens”. In the words of Tabinda, As for this book, it was an amazing connection. We were stunned to discover when we put our work together, that the poems were as much my journey as they were Beo’s; mine expressed in paint, hers in verse, but speaking the same language.

As we proceeded matching poem to painting, we realized with awe that a book was being bornĀ.
