Painting her own path by UN India on Exposure
Weekends are when Radhika Chand catches up on her favourite movies, sitting in her recliner that she bought with her own money. As we walked up the steps to her room, she looked at us with an air of curiosity, and perhaps a tinge of annoyance, at her Saturday routine being disturbed. But it takes less than a few seconds for her to warm up to us and take a break from her knitting – she’s making a blanket. She is not particularly fond of being photographed she tells us. We mumble an apology. “No, no don’t worry,” she says. “As long as I don’t have to look at the camera.”
