Painted this cover for a Scholastic publication

When the enemy invaded Hatim Tai's kingdom, his soldiers were willing to lay down their lives for their noble king, but Hatim would not agree to that. He simply fled, giving up his palace and wealth to the enemy without a fight, and thus prevented him from seizing everything from the proletariat.

Scholastic's 'One Nation Reading Together'

This is an event conducted by Scholastic India every year to encourage reading amongst children. This year's pledge was written by Gulzar, and I designed and painted the poster.
