Sangita, an alumna with two master's degrees—one in English Literature and another in Education, along with a B.Ed.—brings a multifaceted perspective to her art. She describes herself as a ‘kintsukuroi’ individual, implying that she finds beauty in the process of piecing together broken parts, much like her art which often embodies themes of resilience and restoration.


Her literary prowess is evident through her publications, including her debut book 'Reading Mushin' in 2017 and her recent 'Colours of Life' in 2023, which features illustrations by Avidip Kundu. Additionally, her contributions as a co-author to notable anthologies such as ‘Souvenirs of Best Indian Poetry in English of 2021’, ‘Daughter: An Adorable Princess’, and ‘I am on my way to you’ showcase her versatility and depth as a writer.


Also known by her pen-name, Neenja, Sangita's upcoming exhibition at AURA 2024 is a nod to her talent and contribution to the arts. Her presence is not just a celebration of her individual achievements but also a reflection of the intricate tapestry of traditional Indian art forms that she so skillfully represents.


The AURA 2024 exhibition is anticipated to be a significant event, shining a spotlight on artists and photographers from around the globe. Sangita Rajbanshi Kundu's participation adds a rich narrative layer to the exhibition, promising to offer attendees a glimpse into the vibrant worlds of Gond and Madhubani art through the lens of an educator and a lifelong learner.

Her exhibition is expected to be a space where art, education, and the ethos of 'kintsukuroi' intersect, offering a unique and introspective experience to all who partake in the AURA 2024 exhibition.
