Different Hues of the Lake

Every dusk looks dreamy, every dawn is magic… there is something about the lake at backside of my house. Today it is the colour of Krishna! So blue, so ethereal, so serene, took my breath away. Behold the hues!

And a few days back… it was like this charming reddish-yellow. Where does it get the colours from?

If only we had the time to look… we would see wonders everyday!

Small Things#20 – Treasures on Mother’s Day

Little gestures of love – a word here, a kiss there, laborious touch of paint, wonderful whiff of dandelion’s scent, naughty feet imprint, moving words in print, small arms around my neck, sweet and lovely cheek peck, heart lit in a blue bottle, everything so vibrant and yet so subtle…

…These are my incredible, cherished treasures this Mother’s day, created by my kids! I am sure you are making memories too if you are or have a mom. Both ways, a big and happy Mother’s Day❤️

Some Lazy Sketches


After last week’s life threatening Polar Vortex chill (-60 degrees centigrade wind chill, are you kidding me?) and a bout of viral fever, life is ‘almost’ back to normal in my house and the mid west. ‘Almost’ because it is still incredibly icy and cold. The unusual week inspired some introspection and lazy art. Some of the lazy ladies have been featured here, hope you like them😀. Stay warm and cozy!

Just a Thought – You’ve got my back!

When you know someone up there has got your back, you’re afraid no more. You soar, you dive, you float or you fall flat, nothing matters! You look up and say – you’ve got my back, why should I worry? And you smile at the thought of someone watching over you, loving you, protecting you and sometimes pushing you…so that you learn to stand up! But all along you know, it’s all for your own good!

(I took a small break from blogging. But I’m back my friends to share my life and thoughts with you almost every week. Sending lots and lots of love and peace your way!)

Just a Thought – Victim or Perpetrator in #MeToo

While all my heart and soul goes to victims (men and women) of sexual harassment, some of the accusers in #MeToo movement do not seem reliable. Money, Politics or Vendetta might be the reason. However, these kind of accusers are damaging the credibility of real sufferers, who should have all the support and love. As the global #MeToo movement gains momentum in India, there is intense speculation and suspicion.

However, who’s right and who’s wrong…the dividing line is really thin.

Our only prayer – may the real perpetrators get caught, suffer and perish!

Small Things#12 – Man Kid!!!

Last weekend, the kids were playing in a park close to baseball and soccer fields. And I was busy finishing some artwork on a nearby bench, when the little one came running towards me at full speed. Excitedly he pointed out towards a bunch of baseball players who had decided to hang out in the kids’ park. I saw my elder one as well as other younger kids stop and look at them with interest.

‘Mamma, look, do you see him? The MAN KID!!!

Man Kid?? It was then I realized he has never dealt with the likes of them before. He has always been with either kids or grown ups. They confused him, hence the words – Man Kid!

I smiled, looked at those dynamic boys and girls, bustling with energy and excitement with care a hoot attitude, and whispered to the little one – they are called teenagers!!!
