Information The title of my artwork is "Maa Durga hidden within every woman". 'Maa Durga' is the symbol of women empowerment and destroyer of evil spirit. Every woman has a Durga within and stands against the odd, opening her invisible third eye of consciousness and protects the dignity. The woman performs a number of roles in the family, community and social system and she deserves respect. Every woman from any profession and any religion battling demons is an epitome of 'Maa Durga'.

This painting by young artist Swastika Maiti (22 years) received a Bronze Medal in Khula Aasmaan art competition for July to September 2022.
