What They’re All Saying

  • Confident, charismatic and expressive. These are few qualities reinforced in me through our talks. Basically, an online discussion group which feels more like a family, The Abstract Room is Vyasa’s gift of a new perspective on things.

  • The Abstract Room reminds me of my literature classes that I terribly missed. I couldn’t be happier to be a member of a community growing so exponentially in quality and with so much sincerity. The brainchild of a dear friend, it was launched at the perfect time!

  • A place where I met humans that are now a part of my small universe. I’ve been with The Abstract Room for almost 8 months and have always felt like giving more and more of myself to it. It has helped me with my own profession and to be able to decipher every detail from a literary piece or a movie.

  • I’ve been a part of The Abstract Room for 9 months now and I remember how in the initial sessions I felt lost and I was not able to exactly communicate what I had in mind. With more sessions and the constant support from the people in this community, I have not only grown intellectually but my articulation skills have also improved. And most importantly, The Abstract Community is more than what it might seem to be. It’s a family ❤️

  • It’s been an exhilarating journey until now with the Abstract Room – discussing films, poetry,
    stories, art, music and other means of creative expression. The platform has introduced me to a host of different people who bring with them, their experiences, perspectives and ideas, hence giving me a chance to broaden my horizons. It’s been exciting so far, and I’m hoping to learn a lot more in the future.

  • I keep coming back to this place to be a weird yet honest version of myself. There’s a lot I get to talk about and even more that I get to listen to and I’ve throughly enjoyed every bit of it.

  • PORTAL OPENER – this little virtual room has opened portals for me. I’ve interacted with new people, gained exposure to new ideas and week after week fallen through wormholes of new genres and stories. It’s been quite the voyage.

  • The Abstract Room is an astounding platform to explore new books, movies, poetry and most importantly amazing people! It was a blessing at a time when I almost lost hope of being able to meet new people and enjoy meaningful conversations during the lockdown. It gives you different perspectives on myriad themes and enables you to critically analyse and probe deeper into contemporary subjects.

  • Joining The Abstract Room was one of the best things I did during lockdown. I found a family which I could depend on, share and celebrate my best news and rant my worst. And for the movies, I came out of my comfort zone, to watch the ones suggested and loved them.

  • The whole experience of being connected at abstract room has redefined the way I approach art. It’s a platform of family banter without a doubt of sounding incorrect. It’s soft space of intellectual minds with amiable nature. It’s happy place.

  • For a movie buff like me, who watches everything I can get my hands on, discussing a film after I watch it was something I longed to do since forever. Not only did I find people who were just as thrilled by movies as me, but I also found a family, where I could openly discuss my ideas, perceptions and my thoughts. From being a person who never reads books to finishing 5 books in 5 months was a feat I’d have never imagined myself doing. I am grateful to have found such a loving community.
