In 1982, two elderly musicians would each suffer a stroke and become disabled on one side of their body. Without the use of both hands, the two women suddenly found themselves unable to make music. That is, until the day they finally met each other.
William Shakespeare once wrote, “The course of true love never did run smooth.” This was certainly the case for PK Mahanandia, who rode his bicycle all the way from India to Sweden to reunite with his love. PK was a poor young Indian artist, who made his money by painting portraits of people on the street. One day, a young woman named Charlotte Von Schedvin noticed PK’s artwork and asked to have her own portrait painted. PK agreed and painted it. However, Charlotte wasn’t satisfied. She asked if he could repaint her portrait the next day.
