A little inking, a little music and a walk towards life.


Its been a long long time. Again I have let my blog die a natural death, time to awaken it.

Its pouring massively. I really feel bad for the people of Mumbai, racing through life, struggle and work in all this water. Mumbai is really not easy in the rains. Mumbai is never easy, but rains make it worse. I don't mind the rains actually, in fact its perfect right now, lovely weather, rains and some writing. No one will mind rain if they are chilling at home and watching it from a window with a steaming cup of tea.

I guess I am extremely worried about facing august. I start work soon..I am now a teacher at Oberoi International School. A superb school, totally 5 star, but the timings are crazy. I have no idea how a girl who is used to waking up late will now wake up at 6 and reach work at 7.30 am. Probably more than me, my Dad is happy. It's his dream that his daughter should wake up at 6am. I know, a very weird dream but well thats my Dad. Nevertheless it's a new chapter, I cant wait to start work! Interaction with children is something I realized I loved, post my 6 month stint with a NGO. And I stay closer to my field of study too..

Another superb update that I am very proud to mention is that my Facebook art page is going amazing. My venture "INKTALES" has gotten an amazing response and is doing really well. I never thought I would get such massive appreciation for my art work. For those who haven't seen my page, heres my link and a collage of my work.

So now currently I am doing illustrations for two children stories for an organization "Design for Change".  So lets see where my art takes me.

Apart from all this, I am glad that I have gotten back to my music. I used to play the keyboard as a child but I left it ages ago, got a keyboard as a gift on my birthday from..... :D  

I can already play it decently, gonna learn chords by myself..also have a jamming session this saturday with... :D very excited!!

By september I will join professional keyboard classes. 

Also, I cannot wait to watch Fault in our stars this saturday... could do with a sob fest love story!

So all in all, life's always was and I hope it always will be. So now I shall get back to making my illustrations and maybe update my blog more.


p.s - J K Rowling released a new Harry Potter short story! Yay! Reading now! See ya!

"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…
