"KARAARA VINDHEENA PADHAARA VINDHAM
MUGHAARA VINDHE VINIVE SAYANDHAM
VADASYA PATRASYA PUDE SAYAANAM
BAALAM MUKUNDHAM MANASAA SMARAAMI "
Let us salute wholeheartedly the BalaMukundha lying on the
Banyan leaf with his lotus like foot held in his lotus like hands
close to his radiant face.....
Little Krishna lying on an Aalilai is a very famous Tanjore Painting
And I have had the pleasure of portraying Sri Krishna in this form
many a times...and mind it-every time it was a pleasant and happy
experience to paint the bejewelled Baby- Krishna lying on
a gem encrusted Banyan leaf...
