Indra Khanna. Independent Curator'Randhawa's words are FRESH, FUNKY and FABULOUS. Her hot-headed heroine, Hari-jan had my heart pumping as she zig-zags through the difficulties of growing up Asian in a British world. Heart-breaking and hilarious all at once, Beauty and the Beast is an interesting look at identity and belonging. Atiha Sen Gupta, playwright & screenwriter (SKINS. What Fatima Did)'Beauty and the Beast is a very enjoyable read. It had me literally laughing out loud.
