Of art, flowers and a bowl of Maggi...


5:40 pm - K and I jut hogged two bowls of Maggi. Over the last three years of being together, this is what K has specially cooked for me. He claims that he will one fine day learn cooking and help me with the kitchen. (I don't see that ever happening)
 But till that happy moment arrives, I shall make do with the bowl of Maggi. 

I have just lazed around today and all I want to do is sleep. Yesterday I had a hectic day. Had gone all the way to Thane which is so freaking to check out the flower show. Now that flower show claims to be the biggest in Asia. I dont think so.
 I found it stupid. There were a few interesting flowers but nothing too amazing. And they had made weird displays of donkeys, elephants and other animals. They also made a toy train to ferry the people around. There was barely any space there and the train was taking up most of it. Plus just ferrying a few people halfway was enough to break it. So well, it broke. I mean, why even bother to make a freaking train there. Use that time and space to plant more flowers. Over all it was disappointing, but I am glad we atleast managed to get few good shots of the flowers. 







Even managed to click a photo for my Little Arts series.

Moving on from disappointing flower shows, I am so excited for my Christmas/New years break. This time next week I will be in Dharamshala! My trip number 3 of the year 2016. I have wrapped up my orders, just have one more to go which I will complete by tomorrow hopefully. 

I have some really great news to announce for 2017 which I will do so in my next post before I leave! 

Have a great sunday. Peace!
Here are some shots from my phone...

Some more from my Little Arts series...




Have been spotting a lot of parrots outside our window.


K gifted me this awesome Spirography set!! Loving it!!


These are some design I made with the set for my Black box 10 by 10 series.



Interesting display at a photo exhibition I attended yesterday.


That's all for now. Ciao.

  1. Very interesting blog. A lot of blogs I see these days don't really provide anything that attract others, but I'm most definitely interested in this one. Just thought that I would post and let you know.

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…
