She is ready to conquer the hearts of those fully-enabled with kindling yellow fire and bleeding black in fumes of various colours on the canvas very soon. The youngest of 3 siblings and born and brought-up in sprightful Goa, the unwavering seemed to have taken the colours from her environs and sketched a life of her own. Her ensuing confidence has left the helplessness and curse long back.
