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.

If Krishna were a woman,
She would be
Floating in bliss
Her long hair shiny
Body strewn with
Her mouth wide
In smile
At the joy of our creation.
For Krishna
Is Creation
And Creator.
We are all Krishna
When we create.
Let us create
Letting our thoughts
Run wild
Like a little child
that creates
Only for the moment.
No past
No future
No judgements.

Our creations
Our art
Our cooking
Our music
Our poetry
Slowly gently
Float up to her
Like flowers
In a pool of light.
And she smiles
And says,
Oh, my wonderful fellow Women,
Do you know,
Oh, do you know?
You create life
Just like me.
