Vaha Maha Lakshmi

I cannot remember what religious festival it was but I remember I had drawn Ganesha. He’s probably the happiest Hindu god to draw! Once I published it, I got the loveliest comments for it but one not-so-happy mail. I responded with apologies and more importantly, reasons. I didn’t want to make an error again. Why was he upset? What did he not like? I never got a response which, kind of, made it all the more worrisome every time I put out drawings for religious events.

Everyone on Facebook and Instagram was so very kind helping me out with the details that I would have spent hours researching. I truly appreciate it! You guys are the best!

At the bottom is a link to a jpg that you can download, print and use for free!
May you truly be blest with gold-plated happiness and mountains of health!

Oh! because I get asked all the time: I use a Pentel brush pen with the cheapest ink I can find at the local stationary store. I think I'm using student-grade Camlin at the moment.
