From the mid-1940s Chittaprosad lived in Bombay, in a tiny one-room flat in Andheri, which was at the time on the outskirts of the city. In this print he focuses his attention on an everyday scene at the market and creates a moving portrait of a woman and her children. He frames them carefully, paying attention to cultural specificities, visualising them reverentially from below and imbuing them with a revolutionary potential.

By translating the resilience and strength of everyday people through a socialist realist he amplifies their presence in society. He finds his own language within the party aesthetic by rooting it in folk idioms. The fluid and expressive use of lines of varying thickness, the play of pattern and texture to create rhythmic compositions, and especially the stylised and emotive features are a hallmark of his experiments with form.
