Every new sketch I create starts with a great deal of anxiety, "I am not going to get it right" is the predominant thought. This one was no different. It took me a long time to start this as the source photograph was in Janak Puri and I kept forgetting to bring it. When I finally started dwaring it, after the initial hickup, it went smoothly. It felt like I am not drawing it, it is happening on its own.
The good thing about the days when photography and photographs were rare was that it was a treasured possession and was treated like one. This picture had the year it was taken written on it - 1960. This is just before or after my parents got married.
