Some prayers are works of art, such that even god would stop and marvel!
Artistes of the Pink City worshipped Indra dev, the rain god, through their work yesterday; cars were beautifully hand-painted by these artisans on the occasion of the Rang Malhar festival. It covered Jawahar Kala Kendra, Albert Hall, Tripoliya Bazaar, Sanganeri Gate and Badi Chaupar areas of Jaipur through the festival.
The festival initiated by some of the most renowned craftsmen like Vidhyasagar Upadhyay and Vinay Sharma was organised by the Rajasthan Lalit Kala Academy.
The themes of these paintings were very thoughtful and creative; one car spread the message of saving the environment, the other depicted astrology and sun-signs, some painted the themes of heritage conservation and saving the girl-child. One of the paintings very thematically portrayed a woman taking shelter under a tree to keep herself from sunlight.
