12Nargis illustrated by colonelhathi at tumblr. I love the daffodils (aka nargis flower) at the side as a finishing touch.  And divine blouse.

Here are the screencaps on which it is based. Which kind of makes the illustration even more perfect.

There are a few more illustrations at the site – they definitely need to go into a Hindi alphabet book for adults:-)

    Thank you Mardi for your kind comments! I agree it is beautiful – I felt it needed a post of its own.

    I should have followed earlier – I am so focussed on tumblr I don’t appreciate WP folk enough:)
