Humanity has always liked stories. From the walls of caves with stories of cattle, to entire libraries that fit into our palms, humankind has come a long way through history with the same sense of wonder about stories, intact. Indian Mythology is full of stories. The two main epics, Ramayana and Mahabharata, have been told and re-told in myriad ways and artforms. They contain wonderous characters that guide us through their virtues and vices alike. Mahabharata is an epic with multiple avenues of interpretation, that looks completely enticing when being looked at, from the lens of gender. The key characters of Mahabharata are even more invigorating and inspiring when rendered in the female form, giving us a sharp sense of our own perspective, and a closer sense of identification with the story. This series, “Mahila Bharat”, a collection of paintings, is my humble attempt to marry the gorgeous characters of a common story we all know, and present it from a female frame of reference while parallelly addressing common social issues and emotions of the modern life we lead, as the female tribe of this planet.

My Karna
Is Muzoon.
is a Syrian refugee.
She was forced
Not by choice
Not by any conceivable
Action from her part.
She was sent away
From home
For just being
At the wrong place
At the wrong time.
But She shines
After all,
She is the Daughter of the Sun.
She helps young Syrian girls
So they don’t become moms
At the wrong age.
Like Kunti, did.

She gives back
From Nothing.
She reminds us every day,
You always have
Something to give.
-The Giver
“Muzoon Almellehan”
