The painting takes us to an enlightening festival where this young and beautiful damsel, dressed in a three piece red silk decorated elegantly with golden zari all over and adorned in the best of her gold jewels, sits graciously on this platform to perform the puja rituals of worshipping Lord Ganesha. She holds the puja thali that contains the bright flowers, a pot of water and Ganesha’s all time favourite motichoor laddoos.
Painter has very neatly and beautifully depicted the devotional expressions of this young lady with the sparkling eyes and that sweet red smile symbolizing her religious love for her lord. Vibrant and colourful flowers sprinkled in front of Ganesha’s small temple make us realize that, already many such ladies have performed their pujas before the sun sets. The deep yellow background pictures the time of the setting sun, as all the puja has to be performed before that and enjoy the bright lightening of diyas and candles at night.
This painting depicts the scene of a village as can be identified by the structure of the wall and large water pots that lay around the girl; trees painted in the background accentuate the greenery in the village with the applauding use of brush strokes in the striking attires as well as in framing the overall essence of the painter’s thoughts.
