This body of work seeks to highlight the formidable power of a woman – especially the modern Indian woman. She has a backdrop of a country developing at a fabulous pace, constantly providing new platforms and opportunities for women (and, of course, men) to be recognized on a world stage. Yet, there is a lot that the Indian woman needs to accomplish….is apeing the west the best way to achieve success ? Modernisation comes at a cost…is it worth it?

A lot has happened and continues to happen that makes us as Indians far more aware of our rights, especially our right to make the system more accountable. Awareness of the fact that we do not have to accept a corrupt and unaccountable system .Only a coherent and united strategy will take India forward. The alternative is breaking up into nothingness….

The modern Indian woman continues to emerge as a substantial force - an individual capable of accomplishing as much as a man can and more.

My question is, what about nature and the reason men and women are made the way they are?

Do women really have to do everything a man can to prove they are superior or even equal? Perhaps we need to set aside this pursuit of one up-manship for a moment – and focus on the political, social and religious issues that plague our society.
India has so many issues that need immediate attention….poverty, illiteracy, haphazard urbanization, to name a few.
There is a lot to be done yet the focus seems to be lost.

I thought the whole idea behind nature was that she made men and women different to create a balance – then why this struggle for dominance of one gender ?

Balance is the key…all else will follow.

These are my narratives….an ongoing comment on what I see in India , from a very very personal point of view.
