Painting Description:

Some 1500 years ago, the great ancient poet Kaalidaas wrote a lyrical poem named Ritu-Sanhaar in Sanskrit language. Ritu-Sanhaar means description of seasons. Kaalidaas divided the year in six seasons. Season means Ritu. the six seasons are Greeshm Ritu (4th may-30th june), Varsha Ritu (1st july-12th sept), Sharad Ritu (13th sept-26th oct), Hemant Ritu (27th oct-24th dec), Shishir Ritu (25th dec-4th mar), and Vasant Ritu (5th mar-3rd may). Over the years I have recorded my observations of nature including flowers, trees, birds, festivals and cultural activities in India. This painting series in 3 size formats depicts some features of the seasons as described by Kaalidaas and some as observed by me.
This painting portrays Vasnt Ritu (Spring Season) in which the nature acquires yellow hue due to yellow flowers every where. The red and yellow silk cotton tree flowers dominate the season. My observation of the Bhakti Utsav nights (the spiritual singing festival nights) organized in Nehru Park of New Delhi is also portrayed by white threads tied across tree trunks and yellow & orange flower strings hanging as screens. Kaalidaas's mention of the kissing Koels is also portrayed. The painting can be paired with Vasant Ritu-5 (vk-173) as diptych.
