Dear Tharakan Sir,
Thank u for uploading such beautiful images of our country. Mr.Daniell's art did captured that old world beauty of India. He also seems to be a wonderful artist. The painting of the Banyan Tree, in particular, stole my heart. Now a days due to our recklessness, banyan trees also r becoming a rare sight.
