The Painting That I Was Waiting For!
Our lovely library was waiting for the right art as its entry showcase. We had explored many options but never got it right!
Till we saw this wonderful art expression of Ms Falak of Eklavya. It stole our hearts at the first sight and all the As of Karania family shouted in joy!
Eklavya has several unique initiatives and Picasso is one such amazing idea. All the children express their painting and other talents which is encouraged and applauded by the entire society. The exhibition is organized to showcase the talent to the world and the proceeds are given to charities.
The painting is aptly named ‘The Road Not Taken’. Robert Frost’s timeless poem is our favourite anthem and this creative work does the great justice to the poem.
All the recently auctioned paintings of Mr N Modi on one side and this one on another side!
Welcome home ‘The Road Not Taken’ and thanks a million Falak!
Let us revisit the poem here:
The Road Not Taken
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
