Lady from Village

This is one of the numerous paintings one can shop in the markets Rajasthan.

The painting here depicts a lady waiting for her man to return from the field who has gone to the farm to earn the bread.

That's a lovely painting. I remember going through the numerous local paintings put up by vendors on the roads of both Rajasthan and Delhi. It was always amusing for me to notice that in the streets of Delhi one could easily bargain for these paintings at a much lesser price than in Rajasthan. The Delhi vendors mostly made huge profit by selling these paintings to foreigners and so when we go they more than oblige to sell it off for petty amount. Hope to see more of ur travel pics...

Rajesh, you certainly deserve any and all accolades. I love your blogs as you know. The painting of the lady is lovely.

I spent all weekend watching 3 Bollywood romantic films - Jab We Met, Vivah, and Salaam-E-Ishq. I don't remember seeing Shahid Kapur before - he was in two of the films. Handsome devil...I've ordered some more of his films. I was sorry to see that, after three years of dating him, Kareena Kapoor, is no longer seeing him and is with Saif Ali Khan - guess he's older and wealthier!

Rajesh said...

Liz, Kim: Thanks for the appreciation.

Rnsane: Thanks, that is the way life is.
