Deepavali Night: Waiting comes to an end
Tempera on Canvas, 76cm x 56cm
Original: $460, (Rs. 25,000/-)

The painting depicts Goddess Lakshmi with Ganesha visit a poor lady's house. The lady is sitting lonely in front of her thathed house.Beside her is a single deepa and a sketch of Ganesha she herself has made on a slate because she could not afford to buy idols. She is filled with sorrow due to loniliness and hardships of life. The Divine mother has decided to visit this poor lady who has innocence and pure devotion in her heart and not the households which celebrate the Deepavali night with lot of fanfare and extravaganza.
