Through her work she wants to tell a story which draws inspiration from her life, people she met during her journeys. And to tell these stories Nanda creates series of paintings, such as Time Travel, that reflect the thoughts of an extensive cross-border cultural views, integration of values and beliefs; Eye / I (plural) which expresses the way Nanda  sees the world and the way any particular eye can see the world.

Another important series is  Organized Chaos, with whom Nanda  raises funds for the Indian girl child.

“. I like to express my thoughts, feelings and there is always a story on which I base my art on.”
