As a mother and a painter, I felt the need to work with children through art and picture books. It was in 2001 that I developed Amai -- the bird of light , a cartoon character for children, it is a magical bird made of light and million tiny stars, that can turn into a shooting star and take children on exciting adventures around the world . Amai means 'mother' in some parts of Balochistan. Amai loves children like a mother . She can fly children million miles up in the space and thousands of miles under the earth, She takes them back in the past as well as, in future. Amai wants children to know their world, love and respect it and work for making it a humane one.
