Heels in My Life
Vathsala Aswathaman (+Video)
Vathsala Aswathaman, a Classical Bharadha Natyam dancer, dreams of university until the civil war in Sri Lanka interrupts those dreams. Instead, she finds office work at a hospital, always dressed smartly, confident in new high heels. When she moves to Canada, she brings her shoe collection, a reminder that though many things in her life have changed, she remains linked to her past.
