 The Thamburati (the Princess)
10.5 x 13.5", acrylic on paper

"I grew up in Trivandrum, the erstwhile capital of the kingdom of Travancore. Despite the post-Independence atmosphere, the influence of the monarchy prevailed.  Our world was an unusual one, encompassing the common good of the democracy, and the privileges of the King, Queen, Princesses and Highnesses.  I had the good fortune to visit several palaces and attend concerts of music and dance, hosted by the royal family.  This painting is that of a Kerala princess playing the veena. The veena is a stringed instrument with a dragon head carved at one end."
