about Madhubani

‘You’ll make a mess,’ is all that eleven-year-old Ganga hears from her mother and sister.

The sister is getting married, and the entire womenfolk of Jitwarpur is in the kohbar, the wedding chamber, decorating the walls.

Ganga longs to be there too.

But she is always in the way.

Ganga is sent out on errands by her mother to keep her out of trouble. So when the hansuli, neck ornament, goes missing, Ganga has a perfect chance to prove that she’s not always a good-for-nothing.

Does she find the missing necklace?

In RESCUE BY DESIGN, Anjali Raghbeer takes us to the heart of Madhubani with a gentle tale of a young girl’s desire to paint her life in her own colours.
