KIREN RAI’s tryst with the Tarots begun around twenty years ago, when she was introduced to the Tarot by a famous psychic and Tarot reader way back in East Africa, where she lived in the early parts of her life. Drawn to the esoteric, her experience with the Tarot has been wonderfully positive, empowering her and helping her connect with the most essential parts of herself. Spiritually also the Tarot played a crucial part in selecting her path and over the years. She has regularly used the Tarot as a tool for exploration and divination and has done readings for a group of friends, who value her insights and look to her for a fresh understanding of a situation. Fascinated by Tarot symbology, she has explored various decks and found esoteric similarities in the symbols used in all decks. This inspired her to put together an Indian deck of cards replacing the traditional Tarot archetypes with Indian images and symbols. The deck took her nearly two years to complete and has been a pure expression of her creativity. While making the deck she has come to completion within herself and she believes that this mosaic of Indian cards, created by upcoming Indian artists should be shared by a broader horizon of people.
