“What should we gain, O Krishna, husband of the goddess of fortune, and how could we be happy by killing our own kinsmen?”(Bhagavad-Gita 1.36)
It’s long time I have never posted a sketch, well Sorry for that, I was busy. Well here I am presenting my latest sketch, I named it ‘SWING’. The idea behind this sketch, was not clear when I started to sketch it, I was wandering to draw a girl, swinging in a traditional way on a hanging ‘Jhula’ but I had drown it in this way, well swinging girl has been sketched lots of times, but this way may feel quit different, here if you notice, that person i have drawn is in a deep thought, with enjoying a ride on swing, I could remember my days of childhood, when I too used to swing in Jhula, and I remember, I was thinking about flying in wide sky with wings, enjoying the sunset just behind ranges of Aravali Mountains, passing across my village. I can feel that joy watching this sketch….Hope you will enjoy this art………
This sketch is inspired from the lord Khrishna, which is a symbol of love and peace, and a popular deity in Hindu religion.
Khrishna is a deity, worshipped across many traditions of Hinduism in a variety of different perspectives. While many Vaishnava groups recognize him as an avatar of the god, Vishnu; some traditions within Krishnaism, consider Krishna to be Svayam Bhagavan, or the Supreme Being.
Krishna is often described and portrayed as an infant or young boy playing a flute as in the Bhagavata Purana] or as a youthful prince giving direction and guidance as in the Bhagavad Gita.The stories of Krishna appear across a broad spectrum of Hindu philosophical and theological traditions. They portray him in various perspectives: a god-child, a prankster, a model lover, a divine hero, and the Supreme Being. The principal scriptures discussing Krishna’s story are the Mahabharata, the Harivamsa, the Bhagavata Purana, and the Vishnu Purana. He is also known as Govinda and Gopala.
