On a personal note:

I have started my two-wheeler driving lessons - to make an 8 is supposed to gain you a license and it's not as easy as it appears! (For me!) My instructor anyways isn't much bothered, she just hands me a scooter and signs "Off you go"..."do whatever"!I do dream of a day when I don't have to depend on anyone else to reach somewhere!!! 

Today as I was having breakfast our neighbour, Aunty P dropped by to hand over the keys of her place as she was on her way to Bangalore for a few days. 
I need to mention that since last month a stray puppy and a few kitties have occupied/found shelter in "our place" which includes Aunty P, my home and Aunty A's which forms almost a sort of triangle. They keep moving and shifting from one place to another demanding things, playing, whiling away their time and so on. The best of it is when the puppy starts his game with the kitties. She is so affectionate and friendly with them that she can not stay away from them for long but each time she frantically 'plays' with the kitties one of bold ones just slaps her across the face. The puppy just whines and after you can see her after them without any grudge!
Now when Aunty P left, you had to look at the kitties...they just stood there with their "we-are-so-lost" look! I ran in, clicked a few pics and as soon as they saw me they headed towards me and started their "not-so-modest" plea.

The puppy will be featured some other time as she wasn't there when I was clicking these cuties :)

A friend of mine wanted to learn acrylic painting and I have started teaching her this week. It's really nice to share what one knows...and then it also helps us buy "our provisions" :)

Thanks Deepa for your inspiring comments in Artist of India. I fully agree with you ..Yes the "urge" is the main driving force. And once you gather the courage to move out of your comfort zone, for me moving from landscape to figurative and take the challenge.. irrespective of the outcome, satisfaction is guaranteed.So for me its a win win situation.
