The gopikas had sheer numbers of clan and the glamour factor get them all the media coverage, but the artists would rank pretty much up there among Krishna lovers, too. Be it music, dance, literature, paintings, sculpture or architecture, Krishna has influenced the best of 'em all to give their own best. Here's a sample.

'Krishna In Indian Art' was inaugurated by the Minister for Tourism E Peddi Reddy, and will be open for the public till the end of this month. The exhibition is being organized as part of the Janmastami celebrations, and aims to make people aware of our rich heritage and engage them in our festivals and customs.

Woodcarvings of Krishna depicting various stages in his life, Tanjore paintings of the child Krishna, and the paintings of the Kangra School of the 18th and the 19th centuries (the Rasalila series) will be on display here. Besides the modern paintings, there is one in litho print.

There are also rare books of Charles Wilkins, the Bhagavad Gita, the 1631 Urdu book Sawal Jawab (a manuscript in Dakhni Urdu) and another book called Hindu Dharma Ki Haqueeqat (a beautiful, lyrical and romantic description of the Rasalilas of Krishna) written by Muhammad Yousuf in 1933 on display. Other old books such as Campbell's "Great Indian Epics: Stories of the Ramayana and the Mahabharata" (published in 1894) and Edward Moor's "Indian Pantheon" (of 1805) will also be on the racks.
