Tejaswi portrays an Indian woman’s empowerment and spiritual germination through her life events. It is a pictorial depiction of some of the phases of her life and evolution into the Devi she’s worshipped as.
Devi, the Sanskrit root word of divine and synonymous with Shakti or strength, is quintessentially the core form of the female manifestation of the supreme lord. She is also Prakriti, as she balances out the male aspect of the divine. She is the supreme being, the only one able to create, nourish, destroy and create again from the ruins thereby balancing the harmony of consciousness.
Then, through the various stages of the elements of her life she reaches a calm before she is immersed in these elements. Eventually she emerges as The Goddess or The Devi who acts as a catalyst in creating and maintaining harmony, and is worshipped in the Indian society.
