The Pensive Elder Daughter-In-Law

The Pensive Elder Daughter-In-Law

The Pensive Elder Daughter-In-Law

It is an evening of ritual gathering and feasting at her home. Perhaps it is a pooja. The elder daughter-in-law of an affluent landowning family, as could be gleaned from the ample gold and jewels on her person, is looking on at the festive bustle. Moments ago, she had excused herself from the elders gathered there, probably on the pretext of briefly supervising the kitchen. She has stopped in the shadows of one of the doors leading into the arena, overcome by a strange womanly emotion. Her family is showing off the new younger daughter-in-law to the guests, which makes her remember her own initial days in the family. What she is feeling is a mix of fondness and envy and jealousy, the kind that only a woman's heart could contain all at the same time.

It is not likely that her younger counterpart is her equal in form. The elder daughter-in-law is an olive-skinned beauty, set off by the shimmering gold-bordered pink of the lehenga she has chosen for the occasion. Her eyes are a soft brown and large, their expression somewhat withdrawn. It is the raised brow and the subtly pursed mouth that betray the goings-on of her heart. It is the norm in large Indian families to fawn over the latest addition by marriage to the clan, in terms that could be either exalting or demeaning and even both. It is the attention being bestowed upon her that is making the subject of this painting a tad out of place. Perhaps she will take it out on her when they are engaged in domestic tasks together, by chiding her on some excusable pretext but also by helping her make herself at home.

Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma

Great site! Myriad of items across the cultural spectrum. Great search capability, too. If it's Indian, you'll probably find it here.
Mike, USA
I was very happy to find these great Hindu texts of the ancient times. Been a fan of both Mahabhratham and Ramayanam since I was a small boy. Now the whole family can enjoy these very important cultural texts at home.
