Blessé, Blessed

 From my w-i-p graphic novel 'Sauptik: Blood and Flowers' © Amruta Patil 2016
Been intrigued by the incongruity - or poignant connect - between the french word 'blessé' (injured), and the english word 'blessed' (béni). Always seemed like there was more there than met the eye. Here: Narsimha-like Bheem blessé Dusshasan. Meanwhile Karn is blesséd by Arjun as he channelises the sexiest pinup in Christian iconography, St. Sebastien.
