    Remarks: An art review of the painting of Madonna reprinted in Probasi. It maintains that the worship of the figure of the maternal in Madonna is indirectly a worship of power only, a take on Christanity which reveres God as a paternal figure quite contrary to Hindu deism of the 'maternal'. So the author concludes there is nothing on the part of the Indian to learn from Madonna's painting. Note: Month of Publication is mentioned in text also as Kartik, following the Bengali calendar.
