Just like a typical Bangalorean, I regularly pop into the art and craft exhibitions organized at the Chitra Kala Parishath, CKP. The artisans and stalls here are almost the same everytime, nevertheless, it beckons regulars like me, like never before ... we just have to go there! This art mela is a fascinating riot of colours, definitely opens up my senses of taste. I dig it completely!

Here are a few pictures shot from this expanse of creativity ...

Autorickshaw tales

They come out of swanky offices,
Must be getting fat pay packages.

Why not ask for more, "double meter madam"!

After all,
We have to drive around in the heat,
Run a family of six, and make ends meet.

Babyshower Ideas - Diaper Cake

After a quick brainstorming on babyshower ideas, two of us set to work on a three layered cake to surprise a dear cousin. We were armed with forty diapers, glue, ribbons, animal stickers, cello tape and loads and loads of enthusiasm!

Here is our fun product!!

We lit tea lights around it for the extra zing!

I am linking this post to a bunch of parties ... Colours Dekor Weekend Wrap-upKey Bunch DIY Carnival, DIY Showoff, Night Owl Crafting and to Craftomaniac!!

(Had only a mobile phone camera handy at that time, had to do with these blurred pics :)

Song inside a fishbowl

I find my way up, only to find
Tidbits of the same ole kind.
I jostle for space with two other fellow beings.
I go round and round, my only hopes - light and crumblings.
I look out to see humans walk by,
And occasionally poke a finger at me,
All for my colour, patterns on my skin,
I am separated from all, my kith and kin.

A one hour journey
Back home from work, everyday ...
Makes you wiser, if nothing else,
Doesn't it?
Profound thoughts run by,
Makes you smile at times,
As if to pause, briefly,
This frightening-fast-paced life.

Why leave them barefaced?

Photographs, a collection of old and new,
Cherished collectibles few,
Pretty motiffs, plants, bottles,
Or paintings born out of sheer imagination ...
Display them with taste, creativity,
Lend your walls meaning, give them life!

Monday morning

Eyes shut tight, tears rolling down,
He holds mom's hand, and pulls back,
Stamps on the road, and wails,
"I don't want to go to school today"!

A bird song

Brilliant orange ball of fire!
We fly towards you,
In formation.
One leads, two follow,
The rest of us behind.
We're coming home,
To the setting Sun.

Morning bowl of "goodness"

Crisp, crunchy, healthy, "honey-coated",
With bright pink fruit bits, 'tis peppered,
Some hot milk, on it I poured ...
Mmmelted in my mouth, was I floored!

All for something trivial

Stetches of silence,
Over a trivial fight,
Rids a home of pleasance.

Cost of living

A splash of green, a dash of red.
Among all,
My onions are costliest, the vendor said.
Come buy from me, he cries hoarse,
Although you'd have to pay through your nose.

She needn't sleep rough anymore

Dirty, unkept, healthy nevertheless.
She comes to every vehicle at the signal,
The same face every day,
Wrinkled as if in pain and suffering,
Clutching a wailing baby.
Will not regular alms from strangers,
Earn her enough to buy a charcoal box iron and ironing board?
Needs no skill.
And promises her a decent living for years to come.

Starting afresh

Brand new years bring loads of good wishes,
And hopes high for a future unseen...
