During the second wave of the pandemic, I remained isolated from the city I live in but in my hurry to leave, I forgot to keep writing tools with me. After several weeks in isolation, I really missed drawing letters. The idea came to me in a dream and I decided to make pens with the bamboo growing in the garden outside. The challenging part was, to my surprise, making the ink as I didn't have any binding ingredient. I used beetroot and honey to make it which gave the letters a nice glistening effect (and also stuck all my papers together).
