She has been illustrating a series titled, "I Am No Man" featuring female warriors from Indian history.

"The initial idea came from a conversation I had with someone about powerful women warriors in history and I noticed how little I knew about such women from my own country. I decided to do some research and realised just how many of such heroes existed in our history and how little recognition they got, so I decided to turn it into a project," Anand told BuzzFeed.

Here are some of the women she immortalised in her art —

Rani Laxmi Bai of Jhansi

Rani Rudrama Devi of the Deccan Plateau

Mastani of Bundelkhand

Chand Bibi of Ahmednagar

Rani Velu Nachiyar of Sivaganga

Onake Obavva of Karnataka

Belwadi Mallamma of Karnataka

Rani Chennamma of Kittur

Rani Mangammal of Madurai

Rani Abbakka Chowta of Ullal

Ahilya Bai Holkar of Maharashtra

Bibi Dalair Kaur of Punjab
