Eloping and decks of cards.

It's 10:30 pm and the Mehta household of 15 members have met to play cards. We all play a game called "kadi di Rani" which I just don't seem to understand. This game always goes over my head and even  after countless explanations I just can't play it. So I watch my complete family fight and scream since losing in cards is the biggest pain ever endured. I watch them laugh and cry while I sit by like an oddball and Snapchat away.

So yes. I am the oddball in the family and very proud to be. While they play, I blog or doodle. Or I just yawn since I am not a fan of playing cards. I don't mind playing for like an hour. But Mehta household need a good five hour session of card playing minimum!

On a completely different note today morning I attended the wedding of a friend. It was special. Why? Because she had eloped and was getting married. It was a Hindu Muslim case and pretty serious. So they ran away, got married and invited all friends to the court. Crazy. And I wish them all the best as they are so happy and in love and deserve to be together always no matter what society or parents say.

That's all on cards and eloping front.

On the home front I am still as busy as hell. No point going into that, I am just happy to find some time to blog. I really want to draw but even twenty four hours in a day don't seem enough. Six months of marriage have whizzed by in routine and family. I am sure you all agree that time seems to run post marriage.

Tomorrow I am going for Angry Birds movie. K and I are such movie buffs. I guess we watch at least two movies a week at the theater. But Sunday is something special. Will blog about our plans for Sunday soon!

That's all for now. Will get back to watching these guys play cards.

"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…
