Raja Ravi Verma

I had bought a book with Raja Ravi Verma's paintings around a year back. Recently Shweta "discovered" it - she even tried sketching some of the figures.

As I was returning today from the Indology class, I saw a Handicrafts fair on the river bank near Deccan. Imagine my pleasant surprise when I saw a stall with the very same paintings! Most were prints - some were replica paintings - and all were intoxicatingly beautiful. I bought 5 prints - Rs. 200 each.

If you are in Pune - check it out! The fair is on till the 1st of March.
