Welcome to our very first audio experience. We're your hosts, Jag Sandhu & Arjun Singh. Over the next few episodes, we're going to show you the world. Our journey begins in India, where we analyze and appreciate various creative works of influential Indian poets, St. Kabir Das & Mirza Ghalib. As these two poets belonged to two different eras, our conversation aims to highlight the context in which they composed their works. Moreover, we also share some of our favorite poetry written by them in this episode. Moreover, the International Connection is all about inspiring you guys with someone else’s creativity. So, through this episode, we’ve decided to amplify this message even more. As a result, we’ve created this platform, which is sort of like an open mic, where all these Indian independent poets can perform their craft and can showcase their creativity. So, over the past few weeks, we’ve been connecting with Indian creators of all ages with the intent of hearing their poems. And, we were blown away by the amazing talent these people carry within. Moreover, they were not afraid of reciting their poems out loud on a public platform like this. See, one might not associate things like “poetry” or “creative writing” with India’s current setting. But, I guess it’s time for us to take this opportunity and show the world the raw talent this country has to offer. This "documentary-style" approach highlights our unique creativity when it comes to podcasting. So, for an optimal experience, we recommend that you put on your headphones and close your eyes. Find more info here

Today on The International Connection, we'll talk about discovering and then re-discovering your creativity. We're interviewing Ashley Peake Wellmen, who is a published author and an innovative creator. The reason why Ashley's story is so special is that at first, she wanted all the same things that we want, i.e., a career, a good life, being a good parent, etc and she achieved all of that until she suffered through a tragic personal loss. During that difficult time, Ashley gathered some courage and somehow discovered her creative side. To be more specific, she made her daughter a central part of her creativity and just took that very first step of sharing her creativity with the world. Little did she know that she'd not only become a published author but would also bring a very special character to life called Fresno.  So, if you're at that stage, where some past incident of your life is stopping you from being creative and you want someone to show you the way out of that, Ashley's story can be that inspiration you need. And, if you want to know more about who Fresno is, sit back, relax and listen to this episode till the very end. Learn more about Ashley here Want to discuss more creativity?
