Art Sparks (Devi Pistol Wali)

In this episode, Kinjal and Arshad look at a painting by Arpita Singh called Devi Pistol Wali. Depicting a modern day version of the goddess Durga, they talk about the juxtaposition of the fierce and demure characteristics of the goddess, as well as the various interpretations one could derive from the painting. This is a distinctive theme of Arpita's work, where she wants the viewers' imagination to create a story from each painting.
