Utanu Maa, Rise and Fall of My Beloved

“Education gave her the freedom to think outside of the box.”
Utanu Maa, Rise and Fall of My Beloved

“A journey inside conscience, the fortress of secret and truth. The truth, the worse enemy of a man because it hurts, the truth that forces confession, admission, remorse and guilt, weaknesses, failures, and mortal sins.”
Utanu Maa, Rise and Fall of My Beloved

“Hope sustains life. So, we hope as we should when in uncertainty.
Faith sustains life. So, we prayed to God as humans do when in despair: lost, lonely, and frightened when calamities strike and desolate.”
