Reminding one of the fusion of the Indian traditions, with the technique of European academic art, the work
achieves the realism it set out t .It reminds us also of Raja Ravi Verma's elaborately done works with similar subjects.
The story the lady allows you to imagine could be that of one lost in a reverie, while probably waiting fondly for her love .
Bringing along the scenario of the traditional setup, where a woman is groomed with the conditioning of being so
devoted a wife that her entire life revolves round her husband, who occupies the place of her God .
The journey beginning with her being married off . Her entire goal then being that of religious surrender, of her body, and
soul to her deity, her husband. That is the expression of the religious devotion that one deciphers in her eyes, while
the rest of her is decked up beautifull ,impeccably and almost painstakingly, to be the source of utmost joy ( as opposed to pleasure,vis-a-vis the present scenario ) as if she was herself an offering at the alter of her devotion to her lord.
All put aside, that state of being, that anyone for that matter would or could acquire, would already have found his
or her benediction, redemption, his or her blessing. Something akin to what the devotion of Krishna brought to Meera.
That feel to it is what lends a weighty dignity to the work.
