Woman, the creator's best creation, is the inspiration of poetry and painting.

Maneka descended from heaven with a purpose, the purpose being to distract the hermit Vishwamitra from his meditation. He was meditating will so much zeal and concentration that Indra, the god of heavens felt threatened. Thus he sent the most beautiful dancer of paradise down to earth to entangle the saint in the web of her beauty, so that he forget all about religion, spirituality and god.

After a hard try, she seems to have accomplished the mission. Although still dressed as a hermit, his kamandal and the rosary lay astray as he holds the delicate hand of Maneka, who has assumed a mortal form. She has here with all her seductive appeal, an exotic vision of beauty. Her curvaceous body is covered by a diaphanous lover garment and a similar scarf covers her upper body. She wears a tiara and other pieces of jewellery which shall probably occupy the place next to her anklets lying in the foreground.

She has closed her eyes as a smile plays on her lips - a smile of victory. Contrary to the delicate beauty of Maneka is the sturdy, muscular body of sage Vishwamitra. He has long hair, most of it twisted in a knot at the top of his head. His beard and moustache cover most of his face. He holds her hand delicately as if he is handling a fragile piece and looks at it with awe. Rudraksha beads form his accessories.

The background seems as volatile as the central theme. The dark, cloudy sky, the tumultuous flow of the river, the swaying of trees in the blowing wind is all reflective of the innermost thoughts of the protagonists of this painting.

Namaste, This painting was delivered a little while ago. The entire package was soaking wet inside and out. But because of the extra special care you took to protect it, the painting itself is not damaged. It is beautiful, and I am very happy to have it. But all is well now, and I am relieved. Thank you!
Janice, USA
I am writing to convey my gratitude in the service that you have provided me. We received the painting of the 10 gurus by Anup Gomay on the 2nd January 2019 and the painting was packaged very well. I am happy to say that the recipient of the gift was very very happy! The painting is truly stunning and spectacular in real life! Thank you once again for all your help that you provided.
Mrs. Prabha, United Kingdom
I am writing to relay my compliments of the excellent services provided by exoticindia. The books are in great condition! I was not expecting a speedy delivery. Will definitely return to order more books.
Dr. Jamuna, New Zealand
I just received my powder pink wool shawl. It is beautiful. I bought it to wear over my dress at my son's wedding this coming Spring & it will be perfect if it's chilly in the garden. The package came very promptly & I couldn't be more pleased.
