Nikita Modi's Kaleidoscopic Story for the #6FrameStoryChallenge


Red, blue, yellow and every colour in between

it is colours that paint our lives and fills us with joy,
If we take time to look around us,
we will see beauty in the simplest things.
The ordinary becomes extraordinary
when we notice the kaleidoscope
that is our world.
-Nikita Modi


Need we say more? The dazzling riot of colours in Nikita Modi's illustrations leaps to the eye! Her story is titled, "Our World of Magical Colours". She has chosen the words magician, holi, a valley of flowers, umbrella, rainbow and carnival. Nikita clearly has a penchant for colours and that is evident in her striking illustrations! 

About joining in the #6FrameStoryChallenge, Nikita says: 
"I was told about the Challenge through a friend. I was a little late for it and did not have many days but it was very exciting and I knew I am going to do it. I went through the words and I love colours, so I chose words through which I could show my love for colours. And then it just started taking place. I have also always wanted to do a children's book as I love them a lot but did not know how to make it on my own. This experience has been so special I can not express it. It has already given me immense joy. Thank you and love you so much for letting us be a part of it."
