Hi Ramas,

1) you are trying to mix platypus flowables (the Image object im) with direct 
drawing to the canvas.

The simplest way to do what you want is probably to use either of the canvas 
methods drawInlineImage or drawImage.

this is a platypus object, you can use it with a canvas if you are knowledgeable 
about the Flowable api. However, the easiest way to get an image onto a canvas 
is to use something like


see reportlab/pdfgen/canvas.py for more details of the available arguments.

>     print('Sucessfully done')
> c = canvas.Canvas("testPage.pdf")
> hello(c)
> c.showPage()
> c.save()
