Guess Who – Evil or Good?

July 03, 2017 1 min read

Guess who is featured in this Lithograph from the Raja Ravi Varma Press? 

At first I thought this is Ravana – the king who was so intelligent that the artists depicted that concept by showing 10 heads. 

But it is not Ravana for in most communities in India he does not represent the good so chances if finding posters for home worship are low. 

Then who? 

This is Krishna – in his Viraat Swarup form! 

Not easy to discern between the good and the evil anymore right?
