I am 'really' sorry that I missed this reply, thread,forum,site etc.,etc..when you had found the time to encourage me with such nice words..Thank you sir. Yes, I was/am very busy indulging in this "very lucrative and highly remunerative rewarding art." ( yes this part is not accepted as nice) that I could not log in for quite a while....Only we , traditional artists know how the art form has been diluted , the slide has been drastic,and how the current trend affects the genuine artist of this wonderful art form which showcases the affluent past, borderless barath, cultural radiance etc., etc.....the trend of fakes overpowering the genuine....Thanks, but I deny your remarks , we have become rarity and the field is flooded with 'instant 'mania so much that our works have become collecters' items with the result that we rarely are patronised. why should you, when you get a fake for 1/10th of the cost of the genuine? Thanks to the information explosion right& wrong methods abound about this art form so much that very few want to learn from genuine artist. "தலை வலியும் திருகு வலியும் தனக்கு வந்தாதான் தெரியும். இக்கரைக்கு அக்கரை பச்சை ' No this is not bitterness but acceptance of the fact & the general opinion of the mass of which we are aware of...but wanted to correct , shouldnt we at some point?
