Weekend whisperings...


Hi Peeps.

I have had one of my best/perfect ever weekends. K and I celebrated our anniversary at Alibaug. We went to a wonderful resort that was really quaint and pretty. 
U Tropicana is a huge property and less rooms. Hence it's not too crowded, so a nice place to go for privacy and most importantly some peace.

                                                 
K was happily cycling away which I ran behind him as my pants were too tight to cycle. Plus I was wearing heels, so couldn't cycle even if I wanted to. 

                                      


The nights are the best here. Every room has this view and a seating area to enjoy. So full night we sat outside listening to music. Actually it was very cold there at night. Guess winter is everywhere, except for Mumbai.

                                             
Apart from lights, I capture a lot of doors and windows. Actually I love capturing each and everything.

                                            

So quiet and peaceful.

We also tried out a new place there called Boardwalk by Flamboyant. A superb place with a superb view. We had driven to Alibaug, but if you just want a visit this place for few hours, I would recommend a jetty. The perfect time to go there is in the evening to watch the sunset. 

                                       

                                                    

One of the best ice-cream sandwich I have ever had. The brand is called "Where's my cone", you can order them online too. We had the hazelnut ice-cream sandwich. 

                                     
A glorious sunset. Atleast once everyone must go to Boardwalk.

                                         
Some more pretty lights.

Also on account of our wedding anniversary, I started a new initiative for Ink Tales called "Little Arts". 
K came up with the name. It is all about finding stories for my doodles as we walk along life.

Little arts - Sailing through

Little arts - Drinks with a view

Little arts - Bee-cause who doesn't love flowers.

I will do more of the Little Arts. Hope you all like it. 

All in all it was a great celebration. And the family gifted me this wonderful portrait of K and I. (Thanks Dad)


Peace!

  1. What you're saying is completely true. I know that everybody must say the same thing, but I just think that you put it in a way that everyone can understand. I'm sure you'll reach so many people with what you've got to say.

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…
