The Yamuna

This painting depicts a sunset at the banks of river Yamuna .May be in Agra, as we can see the Taj Mahal in assumption, only! Lala did not supply any information on this...this could be Delhi, too--as the river flows through the city and Delhi has many Mughal Era monuments similer to these burjs that we see in the background.

The lovely sunset and the boat are not limited to the geography, go on, and enjoy....

The Village Scenes

Above are two typical village scenes in India where oxen are used to plough fields ...One can see a tubewell in the background ans some hills too.
In the second picture, two women are busy in their domestic chores.Although the practice of cleaning and crushing wheat grains to prepare ATTA ( Flour) for consumption is done by machines these days, in older times, a CHAKKI ( Grinding stone of a kind) was used for the purpose.In it, there were two heavy disks of stone attached to a wooden handle.The grain was put in between and the person would rotate the upper disk with the help of the handle.It was a labourious process! I am not sure if I am describing it the right way...(as all these things have hindi names and descriptions) But I can assure you that this task was not an easy one, as the stone were very, very heavy. I saw a Chakki myself and I couldn't even dare to attempt moving it! I will try to get a picture of it sometime:>) But the women of our villages were quite strong to manage it so easily.They still are.
