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…

Because Mommy hates my eyebrows......

I hate this weather. It's all wet and weird. I am so surprised at myself for nearly finishing my commissions for September. Alongside I even managed to watch two movies. I had decided to watch them only on the completion of my work as a "treat", but well I just cannot say no to a movie night with K. Actually I cannot say no to anyone when it comes to watching a movie. So I ended up watching Freaky Ali which sucked. And Pink which did not suck at all. What a movie!

I called the "Mother" to discuss Pink and the seriousness it showcased about the way women are judged in the Indian society. After ranting for a couple of minutes about how we are perceived and shackled with responsibilities and judgements, she replies -
 "Have you done your eyebrows?"

Now my eyebrows are currently a crisis for my Mother. The fact that her daughter has disregarded the importance of physical maintenance is shocking for her. Since I have been piled this month with maddening w…

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…
