and previous birthdays
Top 5 birthday gifts of all time (I had just read High Fidelity)
It never ceases to surprise me how many firsts are still left in life – a new activity this year was a trip with friends who are artists in their own right. Believe me when I tell you it was most refreshing.
And here you can catch the brown boy in action.
March is mainly about beginnings, but today’s post is about endings, closings, finales. You may remember the post Leaving which I had drawn about returning to India after my post-grad studies in Sweden. Here’s the film, brought to life by the brown boy.
And see more of his work here and here.
From my March sketchbook.
Bangalore Art – There was an interactive dance show that we couldn’t find anywhere, not even online later
Mughal Gardens – Did you know Delhi has these amazing gardens? Now we have to wait for next year.
Rashtrapati Bhavan – That’s where the President stays.
Weekend Art (Kelas)
We went for Bangalore History and couldn’t find it.
BB: Oh it’s not even mentioned here.
We went to Mughal Gardens and it was already shut!
Finally we went to hang out in Rashtrapati Bhavan. And the call of coffee was too strong to ignore.
BB: Not all kelas (flops: pun) – We went for Nityan’s show last night
Me: Trust you to draw a silver lining on my dark cloud…
The brown boy had a fantastic time in Paris last summer.
He loved the quaint hotel on the top floor in Montmatre, and soon got used to walking up the hill
I think he will agree that we got enough inspiration for at least a year.
