Kanya Viday - An Emotional Farewell...

Kanya Viday - An Emotional Farewell...
Acrylics on 12" x 12" Canvas paper.

Kanya Viday / Bidaai is the Hindu customs in which after marriage, the bride walks out with the Groom from her parent's home into a new world to lay the foundation for an entire new life with new family and a different environment. The tears of joy and sorrow can be witnessed not only on the daughter's face, but also on the Mother's.
And that's what I have tried to express by this painting. Actually this one is for my "Mom".

"Years of bonding and a separation within minutes."
It's hard to describe that feeling her daughter being sent off which runs through a mother's mind and the emotions which fill her heart. Unimaginable it is to see a mother cry and smile at same time by hiding her tears.
When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts.
A mother always has thought twice, once for herself and once for her child. A daughter is a mother's gender partner, her closest ally in the family confederacy, an extension of herself.

In Gujarati they say "દીકરી તો પારકી થાપણ કહેવાય" ( Dikri to Parki thapan Kevay )
Which can also means – "The farewell of a daughter is inevitable".
