The origin of the game of kite-flying, in India, is quite obscure. Man's fancy to fly in the sky could have inspired him to create an object, which he could send into the sky. The kite could have been the outcome of his efforts. As it involved a lot of cost, it could have remained initially confined only to men of means. But, in the course of time, it came down to common masses, who, as a precaution perhaps, attached it to one of India's minor festivals, known as Akshaya-tratiya. Now as a festive ritual even a common man could enjoy it but strictly as a rarer occasion occurring once a year and not overdoing it. For creating appropriate atmosphere, the artist has covered the entire framing space with variedly designed and coloured kite motifs. Soft colour tones, fine and delicate line-work, interplay of verticals and horizons, intelligently used gold and costume befitting a person's rank and status impart to the painting its distinction. The artist has attained similar distinction in rendering body complexion and each figure's individual features, although he has shown alike ingenuity in their rendering. The use of geometry in devising architectural forms is simply superb.

Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt

Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
