A woman, irrespective of age, caste and religion, with a book, is always a compelling subject. This artwork is a remembrance of how a woman with a book was once seen as a threat or suspect and how women have gained autonomy and bloomed through reading over the years. 'The reader' in the painting travels across multiple universes between each word. She knows of all the lifetimes stored between pages. It's an attempt to appeal to anyone who's interested in art, literature, women's history or reading in general.
