MUSCAT: Oman is second home for artist Kavitha Ramakrishna because of the positive aura that it spreads through the country by welcoming people and to explore their talent with new ideas.
Tanjore painting is an ancient Indian art form that has symbolised its unique and intricate work throughout the world highlighting the heritage and cultural ethnicity of India.
Oman has a very old maritime relationship with India and shares a strong bond between the two nations. “My inspiration for doing Omani artifacts in Tanjore art is to exhibit the Indo-Oman relationship and my personal gratitude for this wonderful nation which epitomizes harmony and peace”, said Dr. Kavitha Ramakrishna .
This year Oman celebrates the 50th year National Day and through her art she wanted to express her gratitude to the two benign leaders Late His Majesty Sultan Qaboos Bin Said and His Majesty Sultan Haitham Bin Tarik for being the guiding force for this great nation.
“This painting is a wonderful picture comprising both the sultans and their dedication and love towards the citizens and the residents of Oman and the true statuette of leadership and peace,” Kavitha said.
Kavitha presented the painting to Her Highness Sayyida Basma Al Said, founder of Whispers of Serenity Clinic.
Dr. Kavitha Ramakrishna who is also a sanskrit and Yoga exponent had the opportunity to share her thoughts with Her Highness about the Indian ayurveda and traditional practices which help in maintaining a proper and healthy balance of our mind in current scenarios.
Kavitha Ramakrishna is extremely proud and said: “ This painting that is extremely dear and close to me has been given to Her Highness Madam Sayyida Basma Al Said who works tirelessly to give back to the society of Oman and to bring mental health and wellness in each and every person of the beautiful country. I feel honored that madam accepted my small token of gratitude.’’
