Introduction of Peepal tree leaf.

 The peepal leaf with its intricate network of veins is allegorical of the manner in which business is conducted. The complex vein structure very simply sustains and nourishes the leaf through an uninterrupted flow that is also the lifeline of any organization. Each node performs a unique function and the interaction between these different points within the organization is what keeps the business alive. The cardiac form of the leaf, sharply tapering at the top, is akin to the 'shape of life', and represents the hub of order and activity.

The peepal tree - Latin name 'ficus religious' - or 'the tree of enlightenment' was one of the first depicted trees by civilization in Asia (especially India ) and has inherent, natural healing properties.

Paintings

Painting is a medium for the expression of visual fantasies. Birds and flowers, trees and creepers have often been depicted with a loving grace by Indian sculptors and painters alike. In the miniature paintings from Mewar or the Kangra Valley , idyllic nature scenes were created to convey a sense of joy and wonder, or a mood of unspoiled romance and eroticism.

Painting in India has a very old tradition, with ancient texts outlining theories of color and aesthetics and anecdotal accounts suggesting that it was not uncommon for households to paint their doorways or facades or even indoor rooms where guests were received. Cave paintings from Ajanta , Baugh and Sittanvasal and temple paintings testify to a love of naturalism - both in the depiction of the human form and in the depiction of nature.

The decorative brilliance of the Shah-Nama (commissioned by Mughal emperor Shah Jahan) and the expressiveness of the bird and animal paintings commissioned by Jehangir have won particular international acclaim.

Indian painting is freed from externally imposed standards, From the quixotic 15th C illustrations of Jain texts in Gujarat to the deeply expressive miniatures of Malwa, one can move on to the colorful whimsy of 16th C Mewar, the striking elegance of the Kishangarh school, and the refined beauty of later Kangra miniatures.

You can appreciate the sincere lyricism of the Orissa palm-leaf miniatures, the decorous elan of the Bundelkhand wall paintings, the bold and dark colors of Lepakshi, and the vivacious renditions in the palaces and temples of Madurai , Thanjavur and Ramanathapuram. In all these varied traditions of Indian painting, an important element that infused Indian painting with charm and vivacity


The different schools of Indian miniatures like the Pala, Orissa, Jain, Mughal, Rajasthani and Nepali. They were the products of hothouse cultivation practiced over generations. Their varied locations can be explained by the shifts of political power changing the source of patronage. The 11th century Pala miniatures were the earliest to arrive. Their most important contribution was the symbolic use of color.

In Pahadi (mountainous) and Rajasthani paintings the use of bright backgrounds was purely for pictorial effect. The Pahadi artists were not influenced by religious symbolism in the choice of colors. The effective use of a deft and sinuous line, modeling forms by delicate and expressive variation of pressure and to a lesser extent by depth and lightness of tone.


Beginning in the 1950s, a style of painting that had been used to decorate the walls of palaces was transferred to paper or canvas in the Madhubani district of the state of Bihar, in northeast India, to make it approachable by a common MAN and not only THE KINGS.
