Women on wheels


Women on Wheels, a project developed in collaboration with Arvind Gupta, is a graphic book based on a true story of grit.
It has been printed in Marathi by Manovikas publications

"In 1991 an extraordinary and unprecedented experiment took place in Pudukkottai, Tamil Nadu, India. As part of the National Literacy Mission more than ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND unlettered village women learnt not only to read and write but also to ride BICYCLES. Freedom and mobility for women on this scale was unheard of anywhere in the world. For the first time this inspiring story is being told in a captivating graphic novel."
