One of the most popular of the young Krishna's heroic feats in Vrindavana is his subjugation of the serpent Kaliya in the river Yamuna. It is important to observe that Kaliya is a not one of the demons sent by the evil Kansa to kill little Krishna. Rather, he is punished by Krishna for polluting the sacred waters of the river. Indeed it is one of the earliest instances of environmental protection in the world.

This painting, even though using a subdued palette of colors, is nevertheless a lyrically composed picture. The artist has given us a particularly interesting visual interpretation of the transaction. Krishna, agile and quick, as much as engages in a fight with the serpent as he performs a rhythmic dance, climbing as if the coils of the villain. Broad brush strokes delineate the waters of the river in the background, a shade slightly lighter than the color of the serpent; signifying perhaps his muddying of the holy waters. Below Krishna are the serpent's wives, who with suitable offerings and folded hands, have come to plead for their husband's life. Krishna ultimately obliged them by banishing the whole family to the deep seas, which was their original abode.

This painting was created in the city of Kishangarh, Rajasthan, which is often also known as 'çhotti Brijabhumi', or the microcosm of Vrindavana.

Hello, Just a short feedback on your new website layout: the old one was better than most of what you come across on the www, but you've managed to make it even better. I very much like the new look of the book pages and 'my gallery' pages. Thanks again for offering me a look inside the books. It's a big help for finding out if it's really what I want. Everything is perfect: the presentation of the items, your way of handling the orders, and the fast and always diligently packed parcels. Thanks to all at Exotic India, Walter

Exotic India is a fine organization to do business with. I have had the best trading experience and the very best customer service. The communication I have had with Vipin K. is of the highest quality; my questions and requests were quickly and professionally answered and fulfilled. A special thanks to the artist Kailash Raj for the beautiful art he produces; I have certainly been enriched by the way his art exemplifies the stories they tell. Many Thanks to all concerned.

An excellent website, as always. I do not even mention its content, which is beautiful beyond words, but I am merely referring to the great functionality and optimal design of your website. Links always work, the information is accurate and complete, images are very clear, including scanned content of your books. A pleasure to purchase from you.
Oreste, USA
I just wanted to extend my profound thanks to you for expediting my order. It was so well packaged and all import processes taken care of so the beautiful statue arrived in fabulous condition. It looks truly wonderful and I am so happy to have Lord Ganesh take pride of place in my home. Thank you again for your superb service. Best regards
