Poem for Jan 26


I painted in the basement.
I did Radharani and the sakhis.
While I was painting, Baladeva came to look
and said that the sakhis looked like
they were on their way to see Krishna
and that their lipstick and dress were
not in complete order. I took his suggestion
and titled the picture:
“Radha and the Sakhis on Their Way
to See Krishna – Lipstick and Dress
Not in Perfect Order”. I added
disarrayed cloths to the saris of the gopis.
I liked how it came out.
