Painting & text: Ashwini Kaarthikeyan
March 9, 2013
Seated in the centre,
relieved to have caught the wind.
magnetised by the light of passion,
mesmerised by the blazing apparition, yonder!
(This painted poem was inspired after witnessing the Kathakali recital of classical dancer Kalamandalam Rajasekharan during the dance festival 'Remembering Rukmini Devi' on Feb 23, 2013 at Kalakshetra, Chennai. Ashwini Kaarthikeyan is a poet, artist and Bharatanatyam dancer.)
