Rang na daro

Acrylic on canvas, 24″x36″, Prints only.

This painting is inspired by the song “Rang na daro shamji” – a playful Hindustani dhrut composition, rendered so well by Pt. Kumar Gandharva. His daughter, Kalapini Komkali’s rendition of the song is wonderful too.

It translates to “Don’t smear colour on me” – it’s what a shy lady tells her beloved at Holi, the festival of colours!
