Here is my little Krishna
or Balakrishna depicted in Tanjore style ...
This is a slightly off beat Tanjore painting...
I purposely avoided a golden mantapam or a pedestal
because I felt those paraphernalias
rob the human touch from him...
I just wanted a close up of
an impish ,naughty ,adorable little boy...
What is this little Krishna up to ?
Looking out for new mischief with
his gang of little friends in Nandgaon?
Or is he stealthily on the look our for pots
of butter in a Gopika's house?
Bedecked in all the finery and
a peacock feather and rows of pearls
our little makkan chor is looking out
for more fun and games in the Brajbhoomi...
