I was planning this for a long time and finally made it after much changes. The photograph of person selling Ektara was taken in Jaisalmer by my husband, Bhavesh. The actual photograph is given below...

I made few changes which can be seen in my completed painting.

The ektara was a regular string instrument of wandering bards and minstrels from India and is plucked with one finger.

The ektara usually has a stretched single string, an animal skin over a head (made of dried pumpkin/gourd, wood or coconut) and pole neck or split bamboo cane neck.(source: Wikipedia)

The final completed painting...

I has posted the Mughal king's work in progress. So finally the wait is over and I am publishing the completed work of the Mughal King.
