Just when you think I fell off the face of the earth ... ;) ... I pop right back up ... well ! this time ... I just had to ... :))Pragati Sharma Mohanty ... (who has been following my blog for some years now) posted this series of her art work yesterday on facebook and wow ... wee ... it made my day ... :)
here or find her work here and make sure you search for Pragati Sharma Mohanty. Though ofcourse, her this series ... called the 'Lion Man' ... is so hot out of the oven that she has shared it on her facebook page so far .
Being an enthusiast of history and mythology ... her words touch a special chord with me . And when Pragati says , "Surprisingly other world mythologies also carry very interesting parallels to Hindu mythology. Also folk tales like Jataka and Panchatantra, and their equivalents from Eastern European cultures, African etc are beautifully narrated in kids story books ... an inspiration can come from anywhere ... " ... I completely share her opinion and sentiments ... after all I am bringing up a 9yr. old and trying to share with her some amazing books on Indian mythology and draw parallels from across the world.
Thanks Pragati ... loved this series. Hope you create more wonderful pieces and stay inspired ... we'll all love to see more of your work.
P.S - In case you can't get through to Pragati ... e-mail me at rajeesood(at)gmail(dot)com ... would be a pleasure to help you out.
