|7 Oct 2008|| Anca Raluca Sandu|What’s the link between him and those feathers in particular? Vineet Aggarwal
replies: "Well its just that Krishna grew up in Vrindavan where he used to play with peafowl and take care of cows.. so he is associated a lot with both.. he always had a peafowl feather in his hairband and later when he became a king sported a plume even on his crown.."

I can certainly see why Krishna likes pea****s. Love the background. When I married my husband he had pea****s and I used the feathers in my bouquet. He had 8 pairs on his farm. But again I love your work. Vineet Aggarwal
replies: "Wow thats cool! i just love these birds and their bright colors.. have u seen white peacok?? its even more gorgeous "

Oh yes there was a game preserve in the town where I lived. they had a big white male and three hens. This is were I had met my husband. That is how i found out he had blues and greens such gorgeous birds. I agree that the whites were the prettiest. Vineet Aggarwal
replies: "Thats great so u like working wid animals too?"

In a way the game preserve was more like a zoo. I met him while he was looking around. I have worked with animals when we lived on a farm. Like the pea****s ginifoul. and we had rabbits and We even had a wolfcub that came out of the woods once. He lived with us till full grown and then went back to the wild.
We at one point rescued tortises off the roads and took them to our farm. We had hundreds of them running around. But now we live in a small town and we have a siamese cat that is our only pet. We do have lots off lizards around here. And if I wear the right perfume I can see humming birds up close all the time. Probably a disapointment for the birds.
So in a way u can say that Vineet Aggarwal
replies: "Wow!! that is amazing!! i hv always dreamt of staying on a game preserve.. u r lucky to hv stayed in one.."

again, beautiful artwork and fascinating story. The peafowl feathers are just so beautiful!I have seen illustrations of Krishna with his skin a beautiful blue- now I understand why! I am curious about his being from another planet -, I never knew there were any stories of anyone we would consider "extraterrestrials" in the Ancient writings.Were there other inhabitants of the planet? Vineet Aggarwal
replies: "Well actually according to the Hindu mythology, even Brahma and Indra have their own planets.. the major demigods stay with Indra on his planet along with their consorts.. Vaikoonth is the name for the group of planets inhabited by different incarnations of Lord Vishnu.. these are 108 in number and they revolve around a central Sun called Goloka-Vrindavan which is where Krishna resides with Radharani his eternal consort.."

That is fascinating, Vineet! Thank you for telling me- I never knew any of that. Vineet Aggarwal
replies: "Yeah it is!! there r so many things that even devout Hindus r not aware of.. one needs to study the scriptures with a scientific mind to realize the not so subtle implications.."

Krishna’s pose and face expression works so well with the peafowl feathers background, even without reading the introduction (which was very interesting btw) I see a perfect match!
Well done my friend Vineet Aggarwal
replies: "Thanks so much buddy!! Wanted to give him a naughty yet decent expression and i think i managed to get it right! "
