When there is a lot less appreciation for the arts, it is definitely going to dwindle to a bare minimum. The same can be told about the Indian painting scenario. When good painters like Thota Vaikuntam have been able to create an impression of India in the global stage and still not recognized by the general Indian public, you have to realize that there is certainly something wrong with the Indian painting scenario. Of course, every other factor that you find about India can seem to be somewhat intrinsic in its reach, but it has been able to showcase the very beauty of diversity and the romanticism that people all over the world has for this beautiful country.
If you want to understand the rustic appeal of villages, then you have simply got to look into the different paintings done by Thota Vaikuntam. This is a master at work, that not only showcases the very beauty that the Indian villages bring to the global scenario, but he has been able to do it consistently and without any kind of issues whatsoever. That is no over glorification of any sorts, but the basic essence of an Indian village has been put forward in his canvas for the rest of the world to see.
