I have seen various photographic recreations of Rosie the Riveter - all modeled by white women. Yet I'd never seen an Indian version. And I thought to myself, "I'm gonna make one!" One of my family members, who lives in India, helped me with the translation of "We Can Do It!" in Hindi. The model is me, the photographer is me, and I wore a traditional polyester saree with a cotton choli (blouse). I modeled my look after my aunts and other working class Indian women in the home state where both my parents come from - I greatly admire them and their work ethics. I hope you guys enjoy my Indian version of Rosie the Riveter!
