“Ah, Madhava! I saw the fair one freely,

I suddenly beheld her as she bathed:

The filmy muslin clung upon her breast,

Happy he who sees her thus!”

This verse from Vidyapati’s Bangiya Padabali, best describes the mood of the painting that adorns this beautiful wooden jharokha. The Jharokha or window as a small opening in the wall serves the purpose of seeing or peeping, and it is interesting to see how the artist chose another example of seeing to decorate this window. The lady bathing stands on a chauki (small platform), wearing sheer, translucent clothing that highlights her figure. She is wreathed in pearl, ruby, and emerald ornaments, suggesting that she is a royal woman. The male figure nearby too appears stately in his appearance and posture. The scene brings to mind the story of Prince Vajramukuta and Padmavati from the text Vetalapanchavinshati, wherein, as the prince watches Padmavati bath, he immediately falls in love with her.

Baggu Ji has recreated the amorous environment of watching the beloved bath, on this handmade woodwork in the Basohli idiom, making a home décor item a masterpiece. Add this jharokha to your home and savour the romantic mood of Indian artwork.
