Rivers have been associated with goddesses in Indian mythology. This illustration was designed
to depict symbolically the River Ganges. The river is said to descend from heaven from
matted locks of Lord Shiva. It is considered to be the most sacred river in India and one is
considered to be purified after bathing in her sacred waters.
The idea was to communicate the appalling state of the river in the country and re-establishing the identity by associating it with God.

The illustrations created are an interpretation of these emotions and different ideas which strikes her mind. Started with the ‘Search for Soul’ in 2008, the artworks are a continuum of complex human emotions showcased through simple strokes.
Art could be a dangerous way of exposing your inner-self to the world.
