Karunamaya, Machindranath has been a lifelong inspiration for artist Sushila Singh. Since her young age she remembers having a fascination towards the Karunamaya, the jatra with the procession of chariot. The building of Karunamaya’s chariot holds a remarkable fascination with her, the elements used and the natural process of building the same is a splendid sight to watch and observe. The lines followed by the bonds during the making of the chariot have inspired the works of Sushila. She has been drawing the sketches of Karunamaya and its chariot for nearly two decades now. But the zeal has never faded away; she hopes to draw more with coming times.
