The Misunderstood Goddess

An Illustration and Reflection

Illustration by Author

I have a love and hate relationship with Indian Mythology. This illustration is inspired by the life of that Goddess who was not understood by her husband. Eventually she had to leave him, I know we all are celebrating Nine Goddess during Navratri but how can we forget those women who lived a sheltered life.



We are living in the digital world, covered in the autonomous aspects & tracked motions of life. Yet, somehow we are losing some critical elements. Keyboards, touchpads, & speech-to-text are there, but we believe that handwritten words on paper is still meaningful to some poets.
