Beautiful painting behind a beautiful history. I love your gallery and style!

Beautiful hommage to an unknown poet !

Unique and creative,v

Fantastic work, Ayan! :)))

Thoughtful work. I like it very much. A small wild flower growing by the road gets no appreciation, but this does not diminish its beauty.

Thank you so much - Arjun.

This is a wonderful portrait and tells an entire life story in a few lines. It reminds us not only of this individual's plight but also that most artists and even art appreciators lead difficult lives. A lot of people don't understand their interest. I also knew an old munshi in Delhi the 1970s who used to teach me Hindi - but he was really a fan of Urdu poetry as he came from Old Lahore before partition days. Although a Hindu, he was fond of quoting Faiz, Iqbal, Firaq, Ghalib. His sons made fun of him. He was a lower division clerk in the railways and he could only afford a bus, not a scooter. He tramped around Delhi, weary in the heat, trying to earn a few extra pennies. He wasn't an artist himself but an appreciator. But he had got respect because the cultured Lahore of his boyhood days were long gone and after Partition, like so many, he lost his home and came to Delhi. In Delhi, though an old cultured community remained, it was severely challenged by changes, and immigrants from West Punjab could not integrate into this closed community. As a kid i had no understanding whatsoever of all this and was thoroughly bored when he would break off from Hindi and suddenly quote lines from Ghalib or Iqbal ad lib. Little boys understand nothing! v/f
