In Advaita Vedanta philosophy, Maya is the limited, purely physical and mental reality in which our everyday consciousness has become entangled. Maya is held to be an illusion, a veiling of the true, unitary Self — the Cosmic Spirit also known as Brahman. The concept of Maya was introduced by the great ninth-century Hindu philosopher Adi Shankara.He refuses, however, to explain the relationship between Brahman and Maya. or whatever blah . -Wikipedia 

The main point is MAYA - it is nothing but an illusion which prevents  us to seek truth  "a veiling  of truth" and honestly its a part of everyone/everything. We all create illusions , our  mind does , inanimate objects do..and as Plato said "world is an illusion" , i believe it really is...thats how i interpret MAYA. This is an attempt to unveil it and an effort to look beyond  these illusions . An attempt to know what is  what and who i really am. Its attempt to accept and to be brutally honest to myself, break those illusions i know i have created and i need to get rid of in the due course of time ..."veils of Maya".

And about Maya , its a thin shadowed line between real and unreal. Often when the real identities are talked about , the real character is hidden and then the need for the unreal identity arises , so that the real character can come into light .
