“I consider this has a great opportunity for me to showcase the traditions and culture of India on an international platform. This festival opens doors to possibilities of showcasing art in a different light, with colors becoming the messengers of thought and memory. By setting an example, I would also like to encourage more girls of Indian origin born or living in the US to make painting their manner of expression,” said Madhuri on getting this invitation.
