2 Enakshi Ganguly = ""While Jatayu was wounded and lying on the ground when Lord Rama arrived, Lord Rama sensed the end result and decided that Jatayu get moksha. Lord Rama hit an arrow in the ground so as to call all seven sacred rivers, called teertha. Six rivers' waters arrived, one river water failing to obey Lord Rama's call. Since Lord Rama was himself an incarnation of Lord Vishnu, He forced the Gaya teertha to arrive at the spot."Source:"
3 Enakshi Ganguly = ""Can't you do paintings on particular subject, say a story like the Ramayana, so that it can be published as a book? I asked a casual question to some of my disciples one year back. But to my surprise they took it as seriously. And as a result the book has been launched. From 'Manishada' to 'Pattabhisheka' (the coronation),the Ramayana is retold in 36 paintings. The 17 women disciples consist different age groups; some of them older than my mother. But they often amaze me with their wonderful strokes and colours. Though the paintings are intended in the mural style, the paintings were given complete freedom in working with the subject and so there appears; mostly for the backgrounds, certain colours unusual in the traditional murals, yet the main figures are painted in traditional style. It is very rare that women take such an interest and painstaking effort for this type of an art form and I feel greatly satisfied to be a reason behind successful effort. I experience the blessings of my beloved guru Sree Mammiyoor Krishnan Kutty Nair, whose physical presence has no more been with us for the last 16 years, and I think that he is with us in all the efforts.  Prince Thonnakkal"Source:"
