This oil painting depicts the subject in all the beauty of her youth and Indianness. Her skin is glowing, setting off the dramatic makeup she has freshly applied for the sight of her lover. She has chosen a maroon lehenga with a brocaded, low-cut blouse to greet him in. She stands against the background of the gently flowing river and the verdant mounds beyond, but her eyes are not for any other beauty but his. In fact, she has just caught sight of his advancing figure, right when a gust of wind almost stripped her of her dupatta, exposing her to his view. She was trying with both hands to draw the dupatta around her, but paused midway at the sight of him, having forgotten herself. And from her eyes - large, soft brown eyes are longing for him to motion closer to herself - one could gauge the mutual joy of the lovers at setting eyes on each other.
