This artist has stuck to her guns over the long years she has been practicing the art of painting. While no few artists have been swept away by the winds of change Prabha has unruffledly continued her involvement with the life of India's common, humble humanity. Her hero’s and heroines are the pursuers of unsung tasks: fisher folk, farmers, and all other such toilers. She persists with this obsession not on account of any doctrinaire reasons or sentimentalism, but purely because in the unaffected life she observes much colour and beauty, as also the truth of the essential human existence. Well versed in the a.b. c. of modern art, and with several expositions in India as well as in Europe and Japan and elsewhere, the painter has continued to expand in her work, but strictly in keeping with the vision she imbibed during her childhood…Keshav Malik
