Tinder talks and birthday bumps

A very hot Saturday afternoon. A splitting headache. A very heavy lunch.

 And K, my wonderfully weird husband decides to ask me, "Have you ever used Tinder? What is it? How do I use it?"

Me - Should I be scared K? 

I explained it somehow as even I do not know how it works (Thank God) and told him to Google it. 

K - You should be happy I came to my wife directly regarding Tinder instead of googling it. 

I have no response to this and I am glad he has a low attention span because now he is busy in a game of cricket on his phone whilst sneezing away due to his bronchitis. Sneeze away K, sneeze away.

Last week we watched Papa CJ's comedy show called "Naked". What a show. If you don't know Papa CJ then you are utterly crazy so go google him. If you do know him, please watch that show. 
Tonight we are watching a play called  12 Angry Jurors. K has watched the movie and he loves it, so I guess the play should be good too. Post that we are watching Udta Punjab. It's going to be one heavy Saturday night! 

Its my birthday in a few days and I have already been bombarded with crazy gifts this year! Best of all is superb art supplies from Dad and Mum, and a four day Goa trip along with countless other awesome things from the Husband! Along with some crazy retail therapy.
Leaving in a couple of days and trying to wrap up a commission before I go. Really looking forward to this break as May has been the toughest month for me. (Idiotic maids - don't ask)

I have many more updates regarding my art, latest ideas, plans etc. All in due time.

PS- I got inked! Cheers.

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…
