In post-independence India, after gradually moving away from the party, Chittaprosad turned his attention to stories of and for children. He rejected the narrative of a shining new nation and instead revealed the failed promises of independence. These images of children titled ‘Angels without Fairy Tales’, were created in 1952 and published by the Danish UNICEF Committee in 1969 for the International Conference in Defence of Children.

In each of these images he locates a scene of harmony, peace or play within a context of deprivation and oppression, creating a disruption through this stark juxtaposition. Almost 70 years later, these images continue to resonate, challenging the viewer to act on our feelings of discomfort.
