The photograph was taken when Mythily worked from July 1966 to mid-1968 as Research Assistant in the Permanent Mission of India to the UN. Her research work related to non-self-governing territories and their problems and included the preparation of statements to be made by the Indian delegation on colonial and related issues and participation inthe committees responsible for decolonization in the Third World. At the end of her stint in the UN, Mythily returned to India to work with the Left movement and eventually became a well-known Trade Unionorganizer and women rights activist.Photo submitted by: K.Kalpana (daughter of subject)
