Design Feature > Batootas
Found Roshnee Desai on Deviant. It led me to her blog and her Batoota cushions. They were quirky and an observation of the behaviour around us.
Roshnee says: “The Batootas are creatures which infest your daily mundane objects by redefining them and while doing so, passing a social comment, using puns.”
Roshnee says: “They’re at Chowpatty. They’re on bikes. They’re hiding under behind trees. They’re where you least expect them. They sit at Bandstand. They stand at Banstand.Thats one thing they have in common. The incessant cat-mouse chase of the coo-ers and the shoo-ers. PDA. Police Dandaa Abruption. Coo Shun. Shun the coo. You can run you can hide but you cant escape my love.
Roshnee says: “They do it coz its eco friendly.. They do it coz its an adventure. They do it coz they are on a trek. They do it coz the journey is too long. They do it for fun. They do it out of compulsion. They do it coz their Mummy didnt teach them cleanliness. They do it coz the sauchalay was shut. They do it coz thats how its done. They do it coz they have company. They use it as perfect moment to start a conversation. They talk to themselves. pee lo and talk. pee lo talk. What’s your pee lo talk? Is it a Pee lo memory? Pee lo conversation? Pee lo record?”
