Waiting for love.

Though I had completed the drawing challenge, yesterday I hadn't got time to post it on the blog. I had posted it on my Instagram Art page though! So, in case you were waiting for a post from me, I apologise for not updating it yesterday.

Here's the portrait I made yesterday, as a part of Rise and Draw as well as the May drawing Challenge, where I paint one  picture every single day.  These days, since I am also taking part in Rise and Draw, I get a photo, and an instruction in my inbox every single day!

Here's what I painted yesterday:



And here's what I made today:



For today's portrait, we were asked to illustrate the background, and relate it to the model. To me the model appeared pensive and kind of sad, as though waiting for something or someone. I am fond of Avicii’s music, and I felt sad when he died. Thought this was a nice way to pay tribute to him. The background has words  from his song “Waiting for Love.” I enjoyed making this one, and am quite pleased with it.

In case you haven't watched this version of the  video of this song, stop reading right now and watch it!!




Beautiful and heartbreaking isn't it?

Tell me in comments, what you think---about my portraits as well as my video.

Tomorrow--a new drawing.
Till then, just take a moment to feel thankful for all the things going WELL in your life.
Life is so unpredictable.

Ten Reasons why you should attend a book launch by your favourite author. No.9 will delight you!

Why should you attend book launches? Here are ten GREAT reasons! :)


1. You get to hear the author and know what their personality is like when they are not writing.




2. You learn something about 'behind the scenes' that went on in a book.





3.You can ask them questions.





4.You learn something new. (most of the time!)






5.You are showing your love to the author by turning up.





6.You can discuss what the author spoke about with your friends.





7.You will be a a part of a fun event.




8.You can take selfies to post on social media.





9. You discover new books! (what can be a  better reason that that?)




10. It is a thousand times better than watching a movie (which you can always catch later!)



For those of you in Bangalore, come and meet me today(5th May) at Sapna Book House, Koramangala where we launch my new book

  Love a Little Stronger.


The launch of Love a Little Stronger, and a picture for you :)

I have just come back from the launch of Love a Little Stronger. It was a fabulous event, and I am so overwhelmed with the massive turnout, and the love that my readers showered on me. One of them (Madesh) got me a lovely gift too! He gifted me a framed photograph of my family ! (a picture which I had posted on Instagram). A very cherished gift indeed. Thank you Madesh!

Here are a few pictures from the launch:

I was in conversation with Arup Bose, who heads Srishti along with Mr.J.K.Bose.


 The stage, all set for us.
 The fabulous crowd.

My readers--it was a full house.
The interaction was fun! We laughed a lot, chatted a lot and really had a great time. Everyone who came to the launch said so and I was happy to hear that.

I have posted more photos on my Instagram stories  and I will be sharing many more photos on my Facebook page tomorrow.

 This is  the gift which my reader Madesh gave me:



I feel very blessed and grateful to have such lovely and wonderful readers. A big thank you …

What happened when an annonymous person sent me flowers.

This morning when I returned from my walk, a pleasant surprise awaited me. It was a gorgeous bouquet of pink flowers, the very same ones you see in the picture above.

'Who has sent these?' I asked my husband.
He shrugged, ' It was there when I came back after walking the dog,' he said.

I looked for a card, and there was none. It was an anonymous mystery sender.

'I am sure you sent it, as a surprise! And you are pretending that you haven't,' I told my husband.
'No, I actually wanted to get you flowers, but I didn't get around to it. I didn't send it. Must be one of your friends,' he said.
I was puzzled. It had to be someone who knew my residential address, and  I wondered who it could be.
'Perhaps it was wrongly delivered, and it was meant for someone else,' I said.
'No chance. How can anyone wrongly deliver these flowers? It's someone who has sent it for you,' said  my husband.
I asked one of my closest friends if he had…
