Networking Opportunity: meet Dr. Krishna Kumari Challa - a woman who deeply fell in love with science!
She is an Indian National Science Communication Award winner. Of all the compliments she got till now, the best one, according to Dr. Krishna, is from an American scientist and a total stranger. He told her, "Krishna, you are a voice of reason in cacophony of self-confirmative opinion."
"If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader." John Quincy Adams
Dr. Krishna Kumari Challa did her M.Sc. in Life Sciences and Ph.D. in Microbiology. Her area of research is toxins produced by Microorganisms in food and how to control them and protect food from these Microbes and toxins. She published several peer-reviewed research papers in science. She is a self-taught artist who specializes in Art From Science. She is also a writer, a poet, a designer, a social activist and creator of two networks and does several other things. She is an international science-art consultant and reviewer. She explores the relationship between Art, Literature and Science while communicating science on her network, Sci-Art Lab. She wrote more than 2000 articles on various subjects and at present writing books - both fiction and non-fiction. Although she painted Nature in water colours in childhood, she has been actively creating art - especially science based one - since 2006.
She communicates science through art and literature and published a research paper on science-art too.
She did one solo exhibition, “Cosmic Show of Science”, in Hyderabad, India in 2008, group shows in Hyderabad, Kolkatta, Jodhpur, Goa and Jaipur in India in 2009, and a group show in Copenhagen (Denmark, Europe) in 2010.She participated in Izmir Biennial in May 2011 ( Turkey) and in a group show in Italy along with Italian artists in the first week of March, 2011. She exhibited her works in the first international science-art conference in Moscow in April, 2012.
While science is her first love, art and literature for Dr.Challa are life itself (Somebody asked Dr. Krishna a Q after reading this: And her reply was: 'Yes, I would give my life for my love!'). She firmly believes they should represent everything associated with life. As modern day life is closely intertwined with the culture of Science and Technology, she wants science too to be represented in the world of art and literature. She thinks science and art are two sides of the same coin. Exploring this relationship between art, literature and science is a beautiful experience of a fulfilled life!
Although Dr. Challa writes stories and poems too, she mainly writes on science, science - art - literature relationships for her network.
Communicating science is her main aim and non-negotiable passion!

Q: Without learning anything how could you paint pictures? How can we paint pictures?
Krishna: I think most children would paint something in their schools. They learn the basics when they are children.
After this initial training, if you want to pursue art, you can go for more advanced courses.
If you don't want to go after art, I think that basic knowledge is enough.
Then for a scientist, it is not necessary to paint pictures extraordinarily. My main aim is…Continue

People say there is no difference in thinking between artists and scientists. But recently I read an interesting story that confirms the different thinking ways between a scientist and an artist ... It is about Einstein and his wife who was a poet...
Frau Einstein was Albert Einstein’s wife. She was a poet, and Albert Einstein was perhaps one of the greatest scientific thinker of all the ages. Naturally Frau Einstein wanted her husband to know…Continue

Just now I read a Picasso Quote. It goes like this: The genius of Einstein leads to Hiroshimas.
What a misconception! And most of the time artists who cannot understand the importance of science and how it works say such silly things.
Einstein himself didn't approve Hiroshima and criticized it severely (1).
In 1905 Einstein had published his revolutionary equation showing that matter and energy were equivalent and interconvertible. There was much speculation by…Continue
While I was watching Science monitor program on Rajya Sabha TV they have showed people names who got National awards for science and technology communication, and you are one of them, then I found your FB profile. Really I admired your articles on Sci Art lab. So I wanted be part of this Sci art lab. Thanking you mam.
Hello Dr Krishna (Madame)- thanks for the welcome. I don't even remember how I reached your writing - probably through reading some of your answers on Quora - but it is my pleasure to be acquainted with a person like you with multiple facets to her personality reflecting in myriad areas of interest woven around the core of Science - a fascinating range if I may say. Do keep in touch - I write books across genres - including researched Science Fiction novels of Interplanetary Travel and Adventure - and personally very interested in the evolution of the Human Genome, where it came from and what it will evolve to as time takes us on ....
My email is firstname.lastname@example.org and my amazon page is https://www.amazon.com/Deepak-Menon/e/B00AB973PU/
Keep in touch and all the best
