Hidden Truth - Raja Ravi Varma: The Inside Story

In 'Hidden Truth’ Raja Ravi Varma: The Inside Story, Rukmini Varma has chronicled facts about Ravi Varma’s inner psyche, offering a glimpse into the artist’s mind - how he thought, his inspiration and several other pertinent facts that offer a much deeper insight into his life and work. Much of what she has penned had been expanded from keywords jotted down by Ravi Varma himself in pages of a book that the author happened to chance upon, following his trend of thought. The words in brief, often only two or three in number, were leads to colours he would use or his experiences with regard to his inner mind.

‘Hidden Truth’ Raja Ravi Varma: The Inside Story was officially launched on 29th April 2018, the 170th birth anniversary of the artist. The book has been published by Notion Press and has received many reviews for the insight that the author has offered to many unknown facts about Raja Ravi Varma. It is not a biography on the artist, but more a work of Creative Non-Fiction.

The book is also available for purchase at select book stores across the country and on all leading online platforms -,,,,,, Amazon Kindle, Google Play and iBooks.
