This postcard marks the main patrons of the princely state of Baroda, who invited Nandalal Bose to the state in 1938, hosted his stay and commissioned from a mural painting for the building, “Kirti Mandir”, which was designed as a memorial for the ruling dynasty of the Gaekwads of Baroda. Nandalal and his team painted here a mural on the Mahabharata episodes around the killing of Arjuna’s son, Abhimanyu.
