Mughal miniatures are known for their minute detailed work and the gem-like brilliant colours. They project love and romance in perhaps the best way possible. In this miniature, there is a splendid combination of all three and much more.

The role of the 'sakhi' has been often stressed upon in literature and in painting. The nayika has a friend who helps her in meeting her lover, or acts as a go-between the two but she is important to the composition. Here too, she stands guard at the gate of an opulent tent. The grandeur of the tent is reflected by its various sections and enclosures, as much as by the richness of the texture. Within its confines sit the loving couple. The wine casket and cups lie discarded near them. They gaze into each other's eyes, conveying their mutual lover. She of slender figure and delicate features is adorned in exquisite ornaments. Her lover wears layers of clothing and multiple strands of pearls on his neck.

The artist gives little space to the green foreground or the blue sky. He divides the sections of the tent through colour distinctions.

I am very thankful to you for keeping such rare and quality books, DVDs, and CDs of classical music and even Dhrupad which is almost unbelievable. I hope you continue to be this good in your helpfulness. I have found books about rare cultural heritage such as Kodava samaj, Dhrupad and other DVDs and CDs in addition to the beautiful sarees I have from your business, actually business is not the right word, but for lack of a word I am using this.

I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
