This work is a bridge to modernity, reflecting a state of transition in art and society, a refashioning of the broken links in India's artistic tradition. The painting embodies the stuff of dreams and is visionary in theme and treatment. It is fraught with poetic nostalgia. By the brilliance of its colours and esoteric nature of its imagery, it conveys the impression that the artist is depicting the reaches of the introspective eye.

Goddess Saraswati is treated in the most contemporary way. She looks like the present day woman, hence easier to identify with. She rides her mount, the swan which is modeled in a very graceful fashion. Since her look is contemporary the goddess of music and learning has only two hands holding a veena and a book in each hand. Her sacred seat, the lotus hovers in the background. She wears a modern sari and a choli and a small veil covering her head. She wears simple jewellery e.g. earrings and a few bangles spread out on her forearm.

Saraswati here has an oval face with each feature carved out to perfection. The limbs are smooth and delicate. The shape of her lips, the cast of her eyes, the placing of those tender and expressive hands on the veena, or the stance of the torso shows the artists familiarity with sculpture. He makes visual poetry with its own rhythm and resonance, its own symbolism and its own sensuous and abstract connotations.

The background with its different shades and tones echo the serenity of the subject and makes the picture look like a replica of heavenly bliss.
