Chandler's Claw

So its a nice sunday today. I am all cried out, since I watched Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham. I know, lame, cheesy, corny, stupid, people will say all this, but I cant help it. It's my all time favorite, and I always cry at the last shot, lucky for me Karan wasn't home to take the video. 

My hot tea and chips made me feel better, so now I thought why not update my blog. Last night, I changed the look of my blog, made categories and different pages for my work. I am hoping to keep changing and updating all the sections. (Lets see).

Two days of handwork went into making my new design. (I love sketching and since the past two months I hadn't drawn anything). So finally I took a huge A3 size paper and sketched a phoenix, which is displayed on my page titled "work". Now why a phoenix? Answer- It's Dumbledore's pet, name- Fawkes! Duh! A Phoenix is a loyal beautiful bird, who can carry huge weights and their tears have magical properties of healing. Haha. Sorry, childish and juvenile, but I love Harry Potter. Thus I sketched it.

Sadly the work was so intricate and the paper was huge, that my hand looked weird last night. Have you seen that episode in Friends where Chandler plays Miss Pacman (or Miss Chandler - ardent Friends Fan will understand) the whole day and then he gets "the claw". That's exactly what happened. My hand actually looked like a "Claw". Finally after exercising my wrist and palms for few minutes it was ok...

I am bored. I have some reading to do. Neuropsychology started in college and we have extreme detail study of the Brain. Did you know the outer layer of the brain is grey, the actual brain is white and it weighs 1.5kgs. Ok, this is boring. I'll stop.

My Biography of Indira Gandhi (book), is going very slow. I am honestly exhausted reading it as its really heavy. I think i'll just take a break, read something lighter for a while. 

Its been a long weekend. I have a holiday tomorrow..may start a new sketch. (Lets see)

 I have been planning to plant Roses in my window sill for a week now. Before, everyday I would see a man selling plants everywhere. Every road you can find a cart selling plants, and now suddenly when I am planning to buy and plant Roses, suddenly not a single one on the road! This always happens though, I have noticed. What used to be there always suddenly disappears when you want it. Guess hopefully the man may turn up so I can finally buy the Rose and plant it. (Lets see).

"Get cash" said my Beautician.

From where, the sky? I retorted angrily. 

Cash has become a huge problem right now. Modi's move is great but it has affected the common man's life very badly. Can you believe it, tomorrow I have an appointment with my beautician and for a meagre amount I have to shell out a cheque since I do not have any cash on me right now. 

I want to go to Pune to visit my Grand Mom and sadly I have no money to pay for the taxi. I doubt that particular fellow whom we contact takes any card payment. So basically we all are stuck. 

Moving on to other issues that I go through...

K has downloaded an app called "In shorts" or something like that in my phone. I am suppose to compulsorily read and study it. Why? K feels I have no idea what is happening in the world and I should know the basics. 

To be honest, he is right. I really don't have that much knowledge about the current happenings plus I truly do not care about "news", what is hap…

Some "Arty" talk while he does Origami....

I have been trying to find time to write a post about my travels but it has been impossible to do that. They say you "got to make time", but sometimes there just isn't any time for anything! I sometimes wonder, where the hell are these precious minutes going?

It's a lazy Tuesday today and a full house. After a very elaborate lunch of chole and vadas, cake and custard along with some paan. K has slept off and I am feeling sleepy just looking at him. But no! I am going to write and then do some art.

Thankfully I have gotten a good number of commissions since I have come back. I have two more to do, which I shall start today. I finally got around to re-create an Islamic pattern few days back. I was so happy while making it but really devastated with the way it turned out. It took me ages just to construct the grid and then I colored them up using pens. Not very happy with the look and finish of the design. Realised I have a long way to go. I need much more practise. Actua…

To the 2016 that was and a 2017 that will be...

Happy New Year Peeps! *sneezes hard*

I just returned from a fabulous seven day holiday and now I am feeling the, to quote my friend R - "Holiday withdrawal symptoms". 
So for me the symptoms are mild melancholy and a viral infection. 
The year 2016 has just gone by too fast. Like literally too fast. It was a year of love, family, travel, art along with loss, hurt and pain. It was a bittersweet year for me. During Gudi Padwa which is a Maharashtrian New Year, there is a famous tradition that we follow. We never did that, well since we have never been a traditional family. Father and Mother have been free birds always and their need for flying free has rubbed on to us. The tradition was to eat a mixture of neem leaves and jaggery. Of course I am sure it must have tasted disgusting but it had a symbolic reference to it. It meant that life would always be a mixture of bitterness and sweetness. We have to hope for the sweet but also accept and appreciate the bitter. We have to accep…
