Rebuilding the World and The New Norm, 2020, are water colour paintings showing the bigger role women are playing in the field of science and technology today. Women from around the world have broken different cultural barriers to put the world back together after it was torn apart by the pandemic and exposed inequalities. Through her paintings, Indu wants us to recognise the resilience of women and the need to rethink our approach to health, education, our workspaces and the environment.
