The drawing is of a Japanese lady whom I had spotted on the seaside in Kerala. That time in Kerala a festival was going on and she was burning a firecracker. I have taken up a picture of her after taking her permission and drew it when I came back to Kolkata. Her bright face, her expression and her blossoming smile had mesmerized me and so I drew her in order to remind her every time I open my drawing book.

This painting by child artist Chitrita Das (13 years) received a Shortlist in Khula Aasmaan national art competition for children for April to June 2020.
