city palace in udaipur, rajasthan is a paradise for art lovers. the palace has abundant collection of murals and paintings, which makes it an easy attraction for tourists. the walls are adorned with murals of animals to beautiful women. while taking a stroll in the palace, i saw this painting, which showed a king and his entourage getting ready for the big war, with all armoury. however, what got my attention was what the artist had captured so beautifully, the marching soldiers in conversation with each other. what they must have been sharing, about family, not able to spend enough time with wife/girl friend/ boy friend, lack of money, and so on. problems to ponder upon must not have been less even then. enjoy the picture and do visit city palace, next time when you are in udaipur.
