Gangadharan nair Pulingat..


Mural arts in temple structures
Most beautiful as monuments of culture
Where our predecessors shown
Their power of concentration and aesthetics
In such marvel pictures of divine characters

Mural arts in temples of India
Its brightness in colors of nature
A highly skilled artistic talent
Once such artistic talents lived here.

Mural arts in temples of India
In southern states more its sources
But dismay to see it in ruins
Immediate restoration, world's concern

Mural arts and paintings such marvel!
Of the cultural, and aesthetic senses
A property of world heritage
Time is fast going to preserve it.

In Kerala, Mural arts are many in temples
But upkeep and preservation poor
Still nice to see and entertain for art lovers
The proud legacy of our artists to remember.

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
