Rasa Appreciation of original charcoal masterpiece
(Charcoal on cotton-rag hand-made paper, Pune 1989, Mumbiram)
A Krishna lover in the prema vivarta mood has déjà vu feelings even in everyday dealings between ordinary people. Here a dark beautiful woman has her beloved all to herself. This is the svadheenbhartrika mood of the eight different moods of the heroine. The Pulindya forest women used to host Krishna in the caves of the Govardhan mountain. The artist shows Krishna in a moon-like light complexion and her as dark.
He is playing the flute. Being with her is inspiring him. She is in rapture, watching him in the light of the flame of the candle swaying in the wind. Meanwhile the full moon is rising. A parrot perched on a pitcher is the only witness to their intimacy. The two peacock feathers are only enhancing the mood. She is grabbing his left leg. His right leg is drawing her snugly towards himself. Look at his face. The line is beautiful and simple, almost childish. His body contrasts hers and both together are making a beautiful jugalbandi (musical duet). They are seated next to a water pitcher. Whose idea was it to bring the bananas and lotuses ? Look at her hand. Look at his foot.
The fingers of his hands holding the flute are exquisitely realistic. This artist has full confidence in this flute player, in himself and in his beloved viewer.
The Rasik viewer will not fail to notice her feet pressing together sensuously in great delight. You might not have noticed the tassel descending from his neck and landing on her bare shoulder.
Would it not be tickling her ?
There is nothing extra or unnecessary. It expresses the state of mind in divine attraction and prema vivarta mood. It’s a paradise place somewhere far away, yet it looks so very real.
This charcoal masterpiece has been titled “Cologne Pulindi” because it has been acquired by a lady from Cologne. The title goes along well with the artist’s universal approach of ‘Indian’ spirituality.
