“…Through the appropriation of pop culture references, (Mehra) tackles larger socio-political concerns and issues of class, race, and gender, making their persistent complications and disappointments fair game. She tellingly frustrates her audience. . . to expose the anxieties of the South Asian diaspora. . . By integrating humor to reveal hypocrisy, Mehra’s work reminds those paying attention that this isn’t an equal world, and losing this belief, this privilege, is at the heart of her work.” — Excerpt from foreword by Kim Nguyen, and J.J. Kegan McFadden
