Nehru's World through the lense of Vyarawala


Homai Vyarawalla (9 December 1913 – 15 January 2012), commonly known by her pseudonym "Dalda 13," was India's first woman photojournalist. First active in the late 1930s, she retired in the early 1970s. In 2011, she was awarded Padma Vibhushan.
She has closely captured the movements of Young Independent India with Nehru as an important man.
