Swami Vivekananda has inspired the people from across the world. His words of wisdom keep lingering and motivating us even today. His words are like shade of a tree for us. Today is Vivekananda Jayanti and hence I thought of drawing Swami Vivekananda.

And festival of Kites/Makara Sankranti is just two more days ahead. Why not include the kite flying picture, I thought. Kites resemble the Dreams the kids (even elders) have. Makara Sankranti is an enjoyable event for kids being the kite flying festival.  So, I drew some kids flying Kites.

For a change, I used a photograph of a memento with Swami Vivekananda’s cut out portrait. This wonderful memento was gifted to Venu last year for performing in a Yakshagana event organised at Ramakrishnashrama, Bengaluru on the eve of Vivekananda Jayanti. I used it as the wisdom tree’s trunk. Drew some twigs and leaves to complete the picture. In the shade of the wisdom tree, I drew kids flying beautiful kites. 

Wishing an advanced Happy Makara Sankranti to you all.
