Lethal Weapon

Some say that girls and guns do not mix. But judging by the interests guys put up over the Internet search, I beg to differ politely. The cool guns do look deadly in the hands of equally deadly femme fatales who are capable enough to carry them. My latest sketch is inspired by one such work which is widely available over the Net.

Guns always had their own charm to boys. The cold steel, the slick design, the weight and the precision!! Yes, Guns do have the power to change history. And among guns, snipers have always been considered to be a class apart. No tactical operation team is complete without a sniper, who would watch over other members of the team and would also provide an extra bit of confidence to the guys running door to door afoot in close range combat. There are many a stories and legends of extraordinary marksmanship by snipers delivering a kill shot over incredible distances such as over a mile during operation Desert Storm.

The gun featured in the sketch is a Barrett M82A1, which is a standard issue sniper by the US Military as a heavy SARS (Special Application Scoped Rifle). Also called the “Light Fifty” for its .50 BMG chembering, the M82A1 has a muzzle velocity of 853 m/s and an effective firing range of 1800 meters. It has a recoil operated rotating bolt action and a 10 rounds detachable box feed system. Isn’t that Impressive !!

Devotion


I offer my prayer to YOU

Spiritualism had always played a pivotal role in the Indian civilization and the evolution of its rich culture. And at its very core, the Deity and the Devotee play the roles of two complementing characters which revolve around the idea of complete devotion and enlightenment gained henceforth. It is, therefore, not accidental that paintings, sculptures and structures of numerous Gods and their devotees occupy most of the mesmerizing historical works found across India in ancient temples, caves (like Ajanta & Ellora) and other pilgrimages. The stories of unconditional surrender and unquestionable devotion by the devotees to their benign Gods have been the subjects of Monograms and other forms of artworks by many.

The original masterpiece by Mr G. P. Brahma

My latest work is inspired by such a piece of art originally created by Mr G. P. Brahma, a refined artist and an enthusiast in Indian history and culture, a few decades back. Alas, no one seems to remember this great piece of art of late!! This is a humble effort to pay homage to him and his masterpiece.
