Have to vent. 

My post for today is called Momentary. Why? Because I had to back out from my art project. Oh, and also the Billabong thing didn't work out. It is worse when they accept you and then randomly reject you. So few days back I was happy, thinking that finally after years and years my career path is settling, but nope..these two important things just went away. Letting go of the art project was my choice as the type of art I have wasn't matching with the intent of the project. Of course I am disappointed. 

Plus it really doesn't help that final exams are in four days and I am stuck in a massive pool of mindless theory. 

So now I guess instead of being low I should just let it go and accept it. More schools will come, and hopefully my art too shall move up soon. Have to keep faith and believe. It's timing and fate to some extent too. Anything can change before you even realize it. Nothing is ever final, nothing settles. I was ranting about it to K, telling him that finally I felt that professionally things are probably settling and then wooooosh! the winds of change came along. So he told me that why do you want something to settle. "Dust settles, and don't be Dust". Guess its correct. We all look for "settling". But life is always changing, it never stops. So how can we settle? 

The silver lining is that probably something better should come up. No harm in wishful thinking right?

Should get back to my mindless theory.

"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…
