I have applied "Clincitop" cream on my face. An absolute urgency as my really good friend is getting married tomorrow and my face has chosen this wonderful time to pop up two pimples. 


It's my husband's birthday today! Happy Birthday K! For a birthday gift I have planned a nine day Rajasthan trip for him and we leave on 2nd March! 
We are super excited. Well he is excited right now, but when I gave him the surprise he was in extreme shock. I have never seen so many emotions on his face before, nor have I ever answered so many questions in my life. His first question to me was "are you mad?"

I created this illustration for him. (My way of presenting the gift) :D I have now decided that I will be creating a section of travel diaries on my blog. 
So firstly I shall be publishing the complete log of my Australia and New Zealand adventures. All the places we went, sweet experiences and the mad adventures. Those 18 days were so crazy that I wonder why I did not write about them before. It's going to be little difficult to recollect exactly what all we did those 18 days though thankfully we both had maintained a mini travel journal. Lets see how the travel articles unfold. 

And once we are back from Rajasthan, will present that on the blog too. I have always had the wish and will to travel. Thankfully K feels the same way. So we hope that we always go on such little/big adventures often in life. For me, more than material stuff I would rather prefer to collect travel memories in life. Hope to get many stamps on my passport and mark off countries/cities off the map one tiny step at a time. 

Off to Delhi tomorrow for a day to attend M's wedding. Will post once I am back!

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…

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…
