Lights, love and some great news!

11:24 pm - K is playing Fifa whilst I blog. November has started, just two more months for 2016 to end. Time literally runs. And right now I am in utter panic. Yes. I am having massive panic attacks and anxiety. Yes, it happens to me all the time. And yes, I must have written about my anxiety/panic many times on my blog.

Why am I panicking? 

In four days I have my first ever solo art exhibition. This was something I have always dreamt of but didn't think it would happen soon. Sofitel Hotel in Bkc Mumbai has asked me to display my art at their hotel on 6th November. It's an art and brunch event. I am extremely excited for it and at the same time I am dying of nervousness. Everything is mostly ready, though my cards, brochures etc are yet to be sorted. I will also be doing a live demo. I think the idea of doing a live demo is what's freaking me out I guess. 

I am praying it all goes well. 

Diwali just got done and it was beautiful. Lights, rangoli, sweets, puja, traditions, sarees, family, love, food and what not. I had a wonderful time with both my families this year. 

So wish you all a very Happy Diwali! Hope everyone had a lovely time! (Tiny ink sketch by me, have not got any time to sketch some tiny doodles due to Diwali)

Let there be light and love shining in our lives always.

This is the Mumbai airport beautifully lit up for Diwali.

This is the rangoli we made at the Mehta household. Took us three freaking hours!

But when a celebration gets over, it also brings about a sense of exhaustion. Along with all this I have an exhibition to plan for and then start working on all my pending commissions which I have kept on hold on account of this event. 

The break I wanted to take just doesn't seem to be working out. Maybe after the event I will take two to three days off to just watch some shows and read Harry Potter. Once refreshed I will get back to the grind. 

That's all for now peeps!

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…
