New Delhi: When the world was celebrating International Women’s Day on Friday in its own way, the renowned photographer and artist Anjali Sinha along with 11 other women artists was busy with organizing a seven-day art camp starting from March 8 to groom women’s talent in art. In an exclusive interview with Jagran Post, Anjali threw light on encouraging women to exhibit talent in art.

The renowned photographer said, “The workshop ‘Hope’ a belief in tomorrow as the title signifies itself aims at igniting the hidden talent in women.”  Anjali also said, “With the start of the workshop, I have noticed that some women started to take keen interest in art. Several training programmes and exhibitions were organized to hone their skills to make the Women’s Day more special.”

The noted artist said, “Being a woman I can realize what problems they have to face while opting their careers. I have also faced many hurdles while pursuing my career in the field of photography. Initially, I was preparing for engineering exam but switched to the field of photography to realize my dream of becoming a photographer”.

On the present status of women in the society, Anjali said, “Gone are the days when women were just taken as granted and confined to the four walls of the house. Now, women are equivalent to men in every field whether it’s politics, business or art”.

She further said that the educated class plays an important role in bringing about the change in the society. Women should fulfill their own dreams, listen to their hearts and let the others decide what they think about them.

On being asked about the rising crimes against the women in the national capital, she said that they need to be more careful and alert. Anjali also advised the girls to be strong and independent.
