    Another superb piece of creativity, Rana jee.
    Muted colours recede to emphasize attention on the essence of the Olympics with the primary focus on the winning wrestler, secondary focus on the one below him. The detached intensity in the eyes of the winner is the artist’s statement. Too late for Manet and Amrita Shergill, but if Colin David is still alive and flourishing in Lahore it should get his attention.
    By the way, the British SAS have an ‘Artists’ Battalion’ of reservists: all creative people like yourself at the service of Her Britannic Majesty’s most nefarious designs!

    What an attention to detail man!

    • Maj Farooq Rana (A-4) says:

      Zubair, thanks for your regular heartening comments. I am sorry I could not reply your very first comment (On Facebook, a year or so ago). I was not well versed with these things at that time (Facebook, etc. I still am not. Don’t get much time for these). I have very rich memories of your company in PMA and Multan both. Hope to see you sometime in Canada. Keep good health. Regards.
