Its so difficult to capture a #painting like this in its full glory. This is how my current #bodyofwork is emerging...an independent #heavilytextured #abstractpainting #juxtaposed with a #miniaturepainting complete in itself and enjoy the interaction of these two styles that are poles apart. When you look at this #artwork from a distance its an abstract painting and as you walk closer it makes you curious and when you are face to face with the painting you enjoy the miniature #krishna it his full glory flying a kite.
Step back a little and you see how beautifully both styles are married together.

While they originated in China, firecrackers soon made their way into India through trade and military contact. The earliest evidence we have of fireworks in India dates back to the Mughal times. Some historians have pointed out that the knowledge of materials used to make firecrackers existed in India as long ago as 300 BC.

سڀني کي ڏياري جون لک لک واڌايون !!
Sarpech literally meaning "head screw" was turban ornament/aigrette usually worn by men in powerful positions.
Mughals brought in the tradition to the Indian Subcontinent to wear a plume/feather in their head gear from their ancestor Timur. The plume was synonymous with the allegory "a feather in the cap" denoting elevation in status because of valour, or a courageous, charitable, noble deed; also supremacy in campaign.
The feather on the turban was usually slightly curved because of the weight of an attached stone or pearl. During Emperor Shah Jahan's reign the simple plume underwent a transformation into an elaborate gem-studded creation incorporating some of the treasury's finest jewels.This feather shaped sarpech is called 'jigha'. <1> Jigha I am wearing is a kundan recreation by @shehlachatoor used as a brooch

It is Deepavali season across many parts of India; the festival of lights, celebration of the triumph of righteousness over injustice. This Mughal miniature from the 1500s portrays one of the various mythologies associated with Deepavali. The vanquishing of the demon Narakasura by Lord Krishna and his wife Sathyabhama is celebrated as Narakchaturdashi South of the Vindhyas and as Chhoti Diwali in the North.
Sadly though, along with the festivity and fragrance of Saptaparni, palpable worry about air pollution has become one of the leitmotifs of Diwali for us in Delhi. So this Diwali let's do our bit to slay the demon of pollution and breathe free. (Off with your head if you dare light a cracker this Diwali!) :) A very happy and warm Diwali to you! .

“Last of the Summer Wine”
After El Greco ‘The Adoration in the Name of Jesus’ (1578) from the series Of Mughals and Global Nomads (2018). Work on paper.
Examination of religious, painting and cultural identity using elements of European Christian art fused with the colours of the Mughal miniature aesthetic (an art form from current day Pakistan 🇵🇰 / India 🇮🇳 ) combined with the British 🇬🇧 / European 🇪🇺 🇫🇷 🇩🇪 🇮🇹 🇳🇱 🇪🇸 🇵🇹 form of expressionist execution using contemporary mediums and materials.

The larger version of this picture is in the Escorial in Madrid. The subject is thought to be an allegory of the Holy League, a military alliance between Spain, the Papacy and the Venetian Republic, which was formed to combat the rise of Islam and the Turks.

In the original, The Pope, the Doge of Venice and Philip II are shown kneeling in adoration of the name of Jesus, shown in the heavens as IHS, these being the first letters of Jesus in Greek (IHSOUS - IN ARABIC ITS ISA’A!). The name of Jesus was believed to have power over infidels, and the picture perhaps commemorates the League's victory over the Turks at the Battle of Lepanto in 1571. And note Cy Twombly also painted this battle his paintings.

Turkman Gate is located to the southern edge of Shahajahanabad, is named after the Sufi Saint Hazrat Shah Turkman Bayabani. The Old city’s infrastructure is crumbling under the pressures of a growing population, which has grown manifold since the time of its inception.
The basic requirements of a growing city, like parking spaces/parks do not exist. If a four wheeler enters the neighborhood, it results in chaos and traffic jams. Roads are narrow, as most of the shops and houses have encroached on the main road leading to congestion. There is hardly any greenery as every inch of open space is inhabited. It resembles a concrete jungle.

For muslims, hindouist women and hijras, Turkaman Gate is of the safest areas of Delhi. Turkman Gate is very well connected, as it is centrally located and is close to both ITO metro station and Connaught Place.
From security’s point of view, people feel safe staying together, as it also provides a sense of ‘apna’ culture. Turkman Gate neighborhood’s Muslim population forms a part of the often labeled Jama Masjidghetto. People are not very rich but in India, Muslims are not very rich. Muslims are India’s poorest and worst educated religious group.
