Children appear over and over again in Chittaprosad’s works, first in the famine images as he worked as an artist cadre for the Communist Party of India, and then as he continues his search for new ways of political engagement, even letting go of party affiliations.

The family of six are reminiscent of the famine images, with emaciated arms and protruding bellies, reminding us how issues of malnutrition, poverty and inequality continue to have devastating consequences in independent India. Chittaprosad draws them in a tight huddle, erasing the backdrop and removing markers of time and space to create a timeless image, and emphasise the unity of this family against all odds. He uses fine lines to bring out their fragility and their large eyes are stark in contrast, speaking volumes even in silence.
