Giriraja's Rainbow Morning

Rainbow Raj

today we painted Giriraj with a rainbow colored face. In Oriya, the word for "rainbow" is "Indra-dhanu" (literally "Indra's bow"). So Giriraj is Rainbow Raj for two reasons: 1) Because of the colors on his face; and 2) Because he defeated Indra by protecting the Brijbasis from the onslaught of the samvartaka clouds.
The glowing tilak is not a Photoshop technique. It's the reflection of the light.

Giriraja Maharaja ki jaya!
