An over rated adulthood and some computer games...

Father has a new pet.

It's a crow.

Every morning it comes to the window and waits for Father to give him cheese. Yes. Cheese is the only thing the crow wants. To get him to try other food, Father actually grated cheese and mixed it with rice. The crow smartly just ate the grated cheese and left the rice. 

Father specially went to the market and got a huge packet of Amul cheese to feed the crow. That's one lucky crow.

Can I rewind? I want to be a kid again when all thoughts would revolve around school, computer games and junk food. Thoughts about what game to play in the evening, or how could I annoy the Sibling. Or what chocolate I want. Those were the immediate goals and priorities. I miss that.

I was watching a movie with Mother when the trailer for Lion King came on. That instantly to us to the Lion King game we played on the computer for hours. So Mother, Sibling and I were like a team. Every game we played together, or we watched the other play it.

Some of our favorite games were...

Doom - Weird graphics, random beasts and countless weapons. We just had to keep shooting stuff. And if your ammo was over, I remember using a saw to kill people!

Hocus Pocus - One of our favorites! Collecting gems, making potions, all about magic. Wonderful game. 

Lion King. Brilliant! Especially collecting and eating bugs!

Alladin. Another brilliant one! Jumping on camels and eating apples.

Need for Speed

Road Rash - I loved kicking and hurting other bikers. (I am evil)

These were our favourite as kids. Always competing, always trying to break scores, always helping each other pass levels. When life was simpler and easy. When problems were about who has the top score right now and how to beat them.

Good times. 

Why do we have to grow up so fast?
 Being an adult is over rated. It's way awesome to be a kid.

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…
