Dear Reader,

This October I took up a challenge called Inktober. It is widely known as a worldwide celebration of art. Last year I wrote for 31 days straight and this year, well, I decided to pick up the color palettes and paintbrushes too. Click here to view my paintings and writings, and let me know what you think!

On the auspicious occasion of Dussehra, I’m excited to announce that I’m starting a fundraiser to support Give India’s Mission 10 Million Meals campaign. The first 25 folks who donate more than 2,500 INR/$ 100 would receive a painting from my end as a token of appreciation.

This Diwali, here’s how you can rise against hunger:

  • Click here to visit my fundraiser.
  • If you donate more than 2,500 INR/$ 100, please mail your shipping address to
  • The fundraiser ends on November 5, 2020.
  • Paintings will be delivered by November 30, 2020

Please feel free to reach out to me via mail or Instagram.

Together, let’s make a difference!

Thanks a bunch.

Shalaka Kulkarni.
