A wonderful sunday art brunch...

Last Sunday on 6th November I had my very first art event at Sofitel Hotel Bkc. I was invited by the hotel to display my art work and do a live doodle for an audience during their Sunday brunch. I remember being so nervous and stressed while preparing for this event. And now that it is over and my breathing patterns have returned to normal, it feels all simple now and I am totally comfortable doing more such events. 

Time is a funny thing. You are so anxious to face important life events and then somehow you effortlessly get through them. 

Sofitel Hotel is superb. I had my event at the Pondicherry cafe. Wonderful staff, lovely ambience and most of all great food. Now being vegetarians, it is difficult getting good food at 5-star hotels since the menu is always non-veg dominated. But I was pleasantly surprised to find so many items.  And it all tasted superb. To be very honest, it has been by far the best food I have tasted at any 5-star hotel. So I would definitely recommend the buffet at Sofitel. It is completely worth it. 

Here are some pictures!

Got a request to doodle on a Ukulele

Amazing brunch spread

Love for Momo's

So over all it was a wonderful Sunday. A big thank you to my entire family (Mehta's and Karnik's) who stood by me throughout! A big kiss to Daddy dearest, the Mother, the Sibling and my darling K!! The rocks of my life! Without you guys my nerves would have probably blasted in stress! 

Also a lot of love to all the people who were a part of my event. 



  1. Hope you had an excellent brunch and you have shared very useful information. Last month, arranged an art exhibition at one of local grand venues for corporate events Chicago. Glad to find such a beautiful venue for the event.

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…
