Wrong Attire


The wrong attire
This was a journal entry from some 5 years back, I stumbled upon today.. when Tanush was a baby and I was visiting my mom in Mumbai.. Some girl had assumed I was the nanny and not the mom of the baby and she spoke with me in a stylized Marathi. I came back home and looked into the mirror and knew what would have prompted her.. Nannies come really 'neatly' dressed these days (neat, in my mom's language). More importantly, mostly, they are the ones seen with the kids these days. Moms in urban India are rarely ever seen taking their kids out to play or even for a walk...

Tanvi


Tanvi


Nothing beats the want to draw faces.. And kids are always such a delight to draw... Tanvi is my DH Manu's niece with lively eyes and a quick smile.. She loves to meet people and to dress up..

Peanut Butter Thief


Peanut Butter Thief

Long time ago, a little boy named Krishna stole butter from his kitchen, where the butter was stored in pots hanging from the ceiling..
Not so long ago, a little boy named Sooryansh was caught stealing peanut butter after raiding through the fridge in his own house...

Most of it drawn live. Expression refined from photograph later.

Shops @ Marathahalli


Shops @ Marathahalli

View from our building top. The road and shops across the road. 
Tools: Ballpen and light watercolor on cartridge paper.

Drawn more than an year back.. I had trouble trying to get things into an order as soon as my new laptop came. Then the softwares.. Then the scanner.. Then the time (the biggest roadblock).. Then the fear of reappearing online.. Why do we feel so guilty when we are absent for some time, and would like to relaunch our presence?!
