Of numbers, throat ache and challenges

I am down with a viral. Throat infection, cough and massive headache. And to make my life wonderful, three of our maids have taken a leave for this month. (Together, it seems more like a strike for some reason) So yes, I cannot even explain nor do I want to explain how big an issue that is. 

I have postponed some of my commissions as this month priority has to be the "Mehta household".

Now that the major work is sorted, I can rest and write my blog whilst sipping hot water. 

On a happy front, along with my A-Z writing challenge, I have also successfully completed my "36 days of type" challenge. You have seen all my alphabets, so now I am posting all the numerals I doodled. 

I am so happy to have pulled off this challenge. 36 illustrations in 36 days. 
Any ways that's all I can write for now.  Hoping to catch some rest in the afternoon. K and I started watching Masterchef Australia 2016. So ecstatic. We love that show. I watched Game of Thrones latest episode yesterday and slept half way through. If I feel better today I hope I can catch up and complete it. 



  1. Three Maids??? Do you live in a typical Saas-Bahu style mansion with a long staircase? :P

    Wonderful doodles. I envy you for your talent. I doodle a lot too...just that they're not even half as good as yours.

    Get well soon.


    1. haha...kind off though no staircase..with a big gujju family :)
      Thanks. Check out my art page on facebook called Ink Tales.
      Would love to see your doodles.

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…
