100 posts…it seems to be a Big achievement for me… I have been going real slow & steady! I am extremely happy to have reached here. A blog that I had started to keep myself occupied constructively apart from the routine household chores inside the confines and to prove my mettle to myself has turned out to be something more… Every morning I log on to see who has motivated me or inspired me today. It is a great feeling!!! To be welcomed by wonderful people & their comments.
My support system….my followers have been the best…always by me during my thick n thin (though none are aware of itJ)…but as I have said earlier…my blog helps me to destress! I am in a different world where there’s no pain, only colours exist… Hues N Shades of various kindsJ
This is a commission work which I completed a few days back. It was ordered by Mrs. Soji for her daughter's teacher. She likes my style and had given me complete liberty. I love everything that's Indian and Indian themes have always enchanted me. So I resorted to the cool gurukul style where teachers were like parents when the kids were away from home. There was complete trust, faith & sharing of knowledge. And it was set in an idyllic environment where the students interacted freely and were one with nature. There was a strong bonding whether it be with teachers, friends or their natural surroundings.
Today is GuruPurnima and I dedicate my 100th post to all my teachers from my nursery onwards who have inspired me and instilled in me the knowledge, the virtues and the values that I uphold today...Fathima mam, Prema mam, Gracy mam, Kantha mam, Sarada mam, Gyanam mam, Rosy mam, Indira mam, Sati mam, Jhancy mam, Sosamma mam, Sati mam, Radha mam, Jayanthi mam; all my lovely Professors & Lecturers - Vijay Nair Sir, Geetha mam, Usha mam, Vinay Kumar sir, Vijay Mohan Sir, Sheela mam, Jayakumar sir, Annamma mam, Lathika mam, Latha mam, Late Geetha Atmaram mam, Sujatha mam, Late Sebastian Sir, Yamuna mam, Sakeena mam, Jaya mam, Zubaida mam, Ramaswamy sir, Kunhikrishnan sir, Haridas sir and above all Ravindran sir who was our HOD.
