Lovely image, but be careful lest the RSS idiots take it as science.

Some idiots like Ed Haynes can never understand the symbols & iconographies of beautiful Indian miniatures. They only see the world in the 7 coloured flag..

Any duplicate of this image available? If so where it will be available and what is the cost.?

How is everyone so sure it isn't a cow which is just walking on the road ....

Holy cow

Gau Mata ki Jai

Bikaner school is really phenomenal when it comes to the depiction of bhagwatam.

But this painting looks more pahadi.

Anti Sunder.
