Portrait assignment for Time Magazine

Bindu A and K Kanakadurga became the first women to officially enter the Sabarimala shrine after the Supreme Court Verdict in September, overturning the long-standing ban on women of “mensturating age” entering the temple. After their incredibly courageous act, they were forced to go into hiding to escape the ire of right- wing extremist groups . I made this portrait of the incredible duo for Time magazine.
