Ok. So I am sick. Ill actually.

Cold, cough and slight fever. Why? I don't know. Solution- Dcold and Chinese. So I shall be ok by night.

I am dreading exercise tomorrow. Kickboxing is rigorous, and during the last few classes my Sir made me do 120 squats and 80 push ups. My body still aches.

College has been going well. Lectures have started and I can already feel the material load up slowly on my tiny head. Today's lecture was interesting, where towards the end we did a small psychoanalytic task to understand certain things about ourselves. I should say it works, Frued's theory I mean. Don't know why people hate that guy, his work and views are superb.

Can you believe it..I still haven't bought the rose plant. I saw two nice carts in the morning on my way to college, fresh flowers and so pretty but obviously I couldn't purchase it then, and afternoon they are not there.

I started two new books, simultaneously. Six Suspects by Vikas Swarup, the author who wrote Q & A..Slumdog Millionaire (Q&A) is based on it. Hardly few pages have gone by, but it seems interesting. Will write the review after I am done reading. The second book is The Afghan by Frederick Forsyth. This is my first spy, thriller sort of novel. It revolves around the Al Qaeda operations. So lets see how it goes. My Biography of Indira is lying somewhere..all dusty. It's overtly heavy, but one fine day, no matter how many months or years it takes, I will finish that book.

Lots to do. New sketch in process. Plus my books and of course studies.



  1. 120 squats, and 80 push ups.... naaaaice

Of Modi's and mints...

"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…
