Holi : The festival of Colors

"Holi : The festival of Colors" - Acrylics on 12" x 12" Acrylic Paper

"मत डारो पिचकारी। मैं सगरी भिजगई सारी॥
जीन डारे सो सनमुख रहायो। नहीं तो मैं देउंगी गारी॥
भर पिचकरी मेरे मुखपर डारी। भीजगई तन सारी॥
लाल गुलाल उडावन लागे। मैं तो मनमें बिचारी॥
मीरा कहे प्रभु गिरिधर नागर चरनकमल बलहारी॥"
Happy Holi to all my colorful readers..!!!
Holi (Basant-Utsav) is a religious festival celebrated mainly in India to welcome the season of Spring
 But the famous region for Holi celebration is Brij, Land of Lord Krishna. According to the Hindu mythology, Lord Krishna started the tradition of playing with colors during the festival.

These days the commercial aspect of celebration has led to an increase
 in the use of synthetic colours. But traditionally the colours are made of Neem, Kumkum, Haldi, Bilva, and other medicinal herbs prescribed by Āyurvedic doctors. 
The spring season, during which the weather changes, is believed to cause viral fever and cold. 
The playful throwing of natural coloured powders has a medicinal significance. For wet colours, traditional flowers of Palash are boiled and soaked in water over night to produced yellow coloured water, which also had medicinal properties.

You can read some more things about "Holi" form Wikipedia too..
With some more colorful painting, I will be back soon..
Take care and have Happy Colorful Weekend..

Radha Krishna - A Divine Love

Radha Krishna - A Divine Love...
 "यमुना किनारे कान्हा बंसी बजावे, राधा दोडी चली अवे"
Means, " The sound of Krishna's Flute is Call for Radha"
And that's what this painting is all about.!!

There are so many tales and stories of Radha Krishna.
"Radha Krishna, One soul two bodies.."
The relationship of Radha-Krishna is the embodiment of Love, passion and devotion. Krishna is the soul of Radha and, Radha is definitely the soul of Krishna. Radha is undivided form of Krishna.
One can not understand or explain their Love,
But Radha and Krishna are the Best example for Love..
Both Radha and Krisha Loves Lotus,
and here I have shown Lotus at bank of river "Yamuna".
As per Indian mythological traditions "Krishna" is the perfect man. 
"श्याम सुंदिर वर घनश्याम" means "The lotus-eyed, dark skinned Krishna"
Edited picture actually explains that..!!
Hope you like this one...!!
See you soon..! Take care..
