The real artist behind this glowing piece of work is S.L.Haldankar and the painting is titled ‘Glow of Hope’ even though there is a famous misconception that this work is that of Raja Ravi Varma.
There she stood bringing light into darkness
with a lamp shining equally as the flames;
All the labouring done in polishing it
had abrased her soft palms too.
Just as the light had dispelled the gloom
She held hope that her life too would see the light
and a glow of hope filled the room!
