Ep. 20: The life and times of artist Amrita Sher-Gil, with children's author Anita Vachharajani

Diving into the life and work of artist Amrita Sher-Gil was such a pleasure, especially with my wise and witty guide Anita Vachharajani, author of Amrita Sher-Gil, Rebel with a Paintbrush. Anita shares her journey as an author and editor of children’s books, and the story of creating this wonderful book - “a diorama” in her words, offering us a look into Amrita’s world.

As always, you can hear the episode below on iTunes here.

We would be so grateful if you share this with friends who might enjoy it too!
