“Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.”  – Edgar Degas

Art has the ability to transform lives. It has the ability to turn the dullness in your lives to something beautiful. It all begins with what our eyes perceive and how that is transformed into what others see.

Hailing from Uttarakhand, India, Dipti Joshi’s life changed after her husband passed away. She says there was little hope left in her.

Joshi ran a small tea stall to fend for herself. It wasn’t much – a few drivers stopped by and this was enough for Joshi’s frugal lifestyle.



What Joshi saw everyday was a dull shop and a few customers who came and left. It wasn’t a place where people would spend time. It wasn’t a place even Joshi would spend more time than required.

Her life was moving in this monotonous pace until she was introduced to art.

Moved by Joshi’s courage, a team from the Kiran Nadar Museum of Art decided to add a little colour to her life. Using traditional Kumaoni motifs, they started transforming her stall.

Seeing their incredibly beautiful work, school children passing by were also intrigued. Eager to help, they joined in and began painting Joshi’s shed with the Kiran Nadar Museum of Art team.

Soon, the small Joshi Tea Stall was transformed into Josh Cafe.



The artsy modification of the tea stall not only alleviated Joshi’s stress, but the beautifully painted stall attracted passers-by too. A lot more people began visiting her stall. College students visit her cafe and hang out in the area.

The combined efforts of happy helping hands and art have given Joshi a new insight into her life. A woman who once lived content with whatever little she made, now enjoys going to her cafe and serving food and drinks to many customers.

This is the power of art – it colours people’s life. This initiative by Kiran Nadar Museum of Art is fascinating. It is commendable that they transformed Joshi’s life through simple art.
