Bitiya means daughter. The Art work is from my series “Bitiya”.
This series is a part of my campaign to create awareness to protect and value the girl child, in India. India has one of the highest rate of killing girl child (born/unborn).
The little girl in my sketch is from a tribal village of Raipur, Chhattisgarh, India.
I finished this work in August 2011. First time tried Pastel on Stone hinge. This risky combination didn’t give me any opportunity to correct/erase/edit the sketch, once drawn.
Loved this challenge. It came out so real. I love her pure, honest and beautiful smile.
