Soyna Randchhe (Soyna cooking), Postcard to Banu-didi
10 January 1956
Collection: DAG Museums
Although perhaps unintended, this postcard to Nandalals “Banu-didi,” titled “Soyna randhchhe” (Soyna cooking), appears to be a companion piece to his 1944 depiction of an older woman, cooking. In this case, she is surrounded by a host of insects, birds and small animals, that share her kitchen space with her. This sketch can be set in the context of Nandalal’s reflections in one of his postcards to Ramesh Charan, where he writes:
