Whimsical, impulsive and deeply sensitive, Meera Mukherjee's art moves easily from the physical to the spiritual, from the nuanced detail to symbolic abstraction. It is this quality, of simultaneously inhabiting both the everyday and the spiritual worlds, that comes to life in this collection of delightful stories, written and charmingly illustrated by her.
Meera Mukherjee was one of India's leading sculptors, a pioneer who mined tribal and folk bronze 'lost wax' techniques and idioms to express her contemporary sensibility, a rebel woman artist whose life choices demonstrated her rootedness in the material conditions of her creativity.
Anjum Katyal is a writer and editor based in Calcutta. She has several translations to her credit.
