Being strangers by Prakash Bal Joshi (India)

Human histories are replete with painful stories of thousands of people being uprooted and living miserable life as refugees in unknown territories.

I am joining World Citizen Artists with this concerned about humanity and preservation of nature.

Societies and nations need to deal with the sensitive issue of refugees with compassion and a deeper understanding of this global problem. Apart from socio-political reasons, climatic changes taking place in the 21st century due to human interference in nature is emerging as a significant cause for migration and refugee problems.

It is bound to increase in coming years, and as an artist I express my concern and I appeal through my work for a sympathetic understanding of the issue, and people not to look at it from the point of view of them being strangers in the home.
