The Mystical Beginning- Subah-e-Banaras
Famous Urdu poet Ali Sardar Zafri wrote,
“Tum aao gulshan-e-Lahore se chaman burdosh, Hum aayen subh-e-Banaras ke roshni lekar
Himaliya ke hawaon ki tazgi lekar, phir uske baad ye puchen ki kon dushman hai”
(You come from the garden of Lahore laden with flowers, We will come bearing the light of a Benares morning
With fresh breezes from Himalayan heights And then, together we can ask, who is the enemy?) * Translation by Khuswant Singh.
Capturing the Dashwashamedh Ghat, wet in the beatific rays of dawn, the artist has used the tonal gradation, with effect, to capture the intensity of the sunrays. During the morning, the position of the sun is to the right fo the top right corner of the painting. To bring the beauty of the artist has not drawn the sun, rather used the light. The fading brightness of the outer walls of the buildings displays the glow produced by the morning sun, the color gradually softening from right to left.
Medium is Watercolor on mat paper.
