When Sunandita Mehrotra talked about her work, she did say this - "I like creating fictional characters, of which bespectacled cats appear often." Little surprise then that her favourite character makes an appearance in her story for the #6FrameStoryChallenge :).
I found the story challenge on a friend's Facebook post and what interested me was that I could actually weave a new story of my own, around any six words which are otherwise quite disconnected. For me words and images happen together, not one after the other and I felt that in this story making I could actually use that process completely as a language!
