My box of charcoal and colour pencils


The politics woman

The girl from next door

Krishna's Birthday (Krishna Janmashtami, 14th Aug.)

Preparations for the Puja( the ritualistic worshiping).

Thali (plate) of Gulab Jamuns (the brown yum yum balls, my favourite), the Swastika, Marigolds, Sweet Lime and Custard apples(the weird looking fruit), Akshat(rice), Roli(the red powder beside the akshat)

the stringed flowers

my swing for Baby Krishna


getting ready to give the baby his first bath

with water, milk and honey

bathed and dried

and we now let him be, resting, swinging.
