‘Raga Sandhya’ means the vermillion evening, resplendent with red and orange colour against which background the artist presents a young maiden who is listening to the flutist who sits away from her. But the colour or varna of the evening is red. In Sanskrit ‘raga’ means colour as well as love. It is also a musical concept, melody and each raga has its own swaras or notes. Here he exploits the meaning of the word in connection with anuraga - one’s desirous longing love for another. Here also the heroine or nayika hides in her innermost being a secret love whereas the dusk has its outward manifestation of red colour. Both are in contrast with the musical raga played by the male figure on his flute at a distance. The three dimensional interpretation of raga implicit the feelings of the lady and the man and their sentiments.
