Mindscape by Prafulla Dahanukar
most deserved acclaim for her dedication to art and her great and relentless
contribution to the art fraternity, modestly but firmly refused to accept any
reward or award or felicitation, proving her selfless affiliation to all the
art institutions and organizations.
absence has left a mammoth vacuum in the art scenario. She has left her imprint in all our hearts,
which can never be erased. It is very rare to have someone like her, who was
all encompassing and omnipresent in the art world. It has been a personal loss
to all, who have been affiliated with her.
bereaved family includes besides all artists, her ever supportive husband Shri
Dilip Dahanukar and two daughters Gauri Mehta and Gopika Kartikeyan with their
lived her life with full zeal to enjoy the moment-to-moment bliss and
happiness. Her autobiography “Jivanand…” signifies her philosophy of happiness.
