Love is the weaver that knits an alike texture in the eyes of both Radha and Krishna and with alike strength coils the passion within, but as always the coy maid Radha is hesitant and the stubborn Krishna would not let her go. She has supported herself on her right arm but that is not actually required. Krishna has a well decked bosom, wide and broad, and here Radha can secure her most precious treasure, her own bosom and the rubies of lips upon those of Krishna. A huge bolster placed behind Radha obstructs her from receding. Arrested in Krishna's arms she has but one course left and it leads to Krishna's bosom.

This class painting, a representative form of medieval Kishangarh art style, represents Radha and Krishna making love on a palatial terrace during a bright night. Kishangarh dynasty were great devotees of Krishna. They even attired as did the legendary Krishna. Hence, there came in prevalence a feudal form of Radha and Krishna in Kishangarh art. Sometimes Kishangarh rajas were painted as Krishna and sometimes Krishna, or even Radha as here, came to be painted as feudal lords. After Radha was deified, in votive art her regal representations came to prevail, but as per the Radha Krishna legend she was Krishna's companion only till he was a cowherd of Vraja. Krishna, though he has his peacock feather crest, has been additionally crowned and bejewelled as a raja. A richly embroidered large carpet, number of bolsters, elegantly parapetted terrace and the entire atmosphere is more like a palace rather than the banks of river Yamuna, meadows around or a grove or bower in forest, the more usual aspects of the Krishna legend.

Radha has come on the terrace to meet Krishna, but as usual she is now hesitant, may be, because the moon was intentively looking at them. Krishna, however, is unwilling to spare her. Holding her left hand he drags her to his bosom. With his right hand he is pushing her from behind. Radha's passion is nontheless strong but how could she allow her garments to go off her person on a terrace open from all sides. She is unable to raise both, her eyes and her hand which placed on the floor is supporting her entire figure. Large heavy eyes with prominent eye-lashes, broad forehead, fine features and protruding breasts define Radha's beauty and vigorous youth. The artist has omitted all kind of paraphernalia most judiciously so that the figures of Radha and Krishna remained in greater focus. He has as skilfully discovered tender tones of deep colours partly by discovering their eye-soothing effects and partly by using a pale mauve tinted background against which each colour has its own tonal depth and its own drama.

This description by Prof. P.C. Jain and Dr Daljeet. Prof. Jain specializes on the aesthetics of ancient Indian literature. Dr Daljeet is the chief curator of the Visual Arts Gallery at the National Museum of India, New Delhi. They have both collaborated on numerous books on Indian art and culture.

Testimonials

Hello Vipin K., thanks a lot for replacing the 4th volume of the Srimad Bhagavatam and sending me a faultless copy of the book so fast. The faulty pagination (missing and mixed up pages) is due to the bookbinding, of course, you are not to blame. Your customer service is excellent. And as your selection of books is extraordinary, I'm already looking forward to the next books that will reach me, perfectly packed and in best condition as always. ;-)

I really found this site to be very well designed, and the number of items amazing. From my careful inspection of the high resolution photos, the quality of work appears to be outstanding.

Your custom service is great, especially Vipin. Vipin helped me locate a lost package. that was so nice!!!! I love this company. I love the cotton skirts with ruffle on the bottom. I also love how that when we place items in the shopping cart, the computer system allows them to remain in the cart until we are ready to purchase them. They don't disappear like with other on-line stores shopping cart system. Your the Best!!!
Heather Davis, USA
A true treasure vault of Bharatiya samskruti knowledge books! Thanks for this service.
Shashikant, USA
Very nice website, easy to use. Your one of the few Indian website that have an extensive collection of CD's that will ship to America.I think Indian website should expand themselves into the global community China sure has. China's market growth had to do with supply and demand. The same thing could happen to India, you just have to open the doors of India and let it happen. At least you seem to be doing that.
