Dipti – Your artwork reminds us that we must confront the issues of domestic violence and child abuse – here in our own country and the globe.

It was indeed a great pleasure meeting Dipti Kulkarni at the Consulate General of India New York. I was deeply impressed by her commitment to the cause of empowerment of women, Her paintings and poetry both reflected her deep commitment and passion to the upliftment of women. The vivid colours of her paintings and beautiful words of her poetry penetrate deep into the heart. Indian civilization and ethos accord divine status to women which unfortunate got eroded over centuries. In this context I congratulate Dipti for taking up this great task for restoration of dignity of women. I wish her the very best in this noble mission.

Dipti's work portrays emotions that women go through as a part of what I would unfortunately call the "Occupational Hazard" of being a woman in this day and age. She has captured and trapped these emotions in her works so well that no amount of words would ever be able to describe them in this way. This isn't just the story of Indian women but women all over the world. Dipti's art brings attention to and raises awareness which is always an important first step towards a more positive direction and a cure.
