INDIAN FOLK ART ILLUSTRATION
Folk art for Chapter 4 (verses 7 and 8) of Shrimad Bhagavad Gita
यदा यदा हि धर्मस्य ग्लानिर्भवति भारत ।
अभ्युत्थानमधर्मस्य तदात्मानं सृजाम्यहम् ॥४-७॥
परित्राणाय साधूनां विनाशाय च दुष्कृताम् ।
धर्मसंस्थापनार्थाय सम्भवामि युगे युगे ॥४-८॥
Whenever there is decay of righteousness, O Bharata,
And there is exaltation of unrighteousness, then I Myself come forth ;
For the protection of the good, for the destruction of evil-doers,
For the sake of firmly establishing righteousness, I am born from age to age.
This is my humble attempt in portraying the illustration in Chitra Sutra art style from Vishnu Dharmottara Purana.
Dashavtar in Chitra Sutra art style
10 Indian Gods (Dashavatar) in Chitra Sutra Folk art style. This illustration for part of a book along with 17 other Indian folk art which was launched by Tamil Nadu Governor on May 26, 2023 at the C-20 summit in Mahabalipuram.
That's me receiving the book from Shri R. N. Ravi, Tamil Nadu Governor along with Swami Mitrananda ji, head of Chinmaya Mission Chennai. The next photo is me with the team.
