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.
