Patan Museum Keshav Narayan Chowk Gallery was warm with six-year old writer and artist Vidheha Ranjan’s readings, music, and art show on Saturday. Novelist and awarded writer Padmavati Singh was the chief guest at this second event of Vidheha’s booktour as per a press statement released by organizer.
'I Like My Life,' written by Vidheha when four years old is her second book, the first was 'Early Creations' published on her third birthday along with a solo art exhibition at the Nepal Art Council.
Padmavati Singh praised the young writer and artist as she stressed a need for continuity and hard work. She said that this was “important work.” Called the youngest artist to exhibit in Nepal, her creations have been said to epitomize the enigma and originality of a child’s mind.
An audience of educators, doctors, parents, writers and journalists were a part of a solo flute performance in the Eastern tradition, readings of excerpts from the upcoming book, a solo performance in the Western tradition and a sharing of artwork.
Vidheha has appeared on the cover “Muna” children’s magazine and “Fr!day” has stated that she presents a mindset different than that of a mainstream learner. Her work has been a part of 92Y of New York’s Genius Exhibition at the Patan Museum and has appeared on the covers of EcpatLuxemborg Nepal annual report, Mukti Project factsheet and as icons on 60 years of German Embassy in Nepal leaflet among other publications.
Besides regular school work, she plays music for patients at the Nepal Hospice, performs at different schools, community and cultural sites, and spends every Friday afternoon learning with the Patan Kumari.
