Thursday Hops #18

What with the Diwali festivities and tackling the work piled up afterwards, I missed posting Thursday Hops last week. So this week I’m playing catch up and posting what I ought to have posted last week. Today’s post is about my Puja corner, which was hastily put together last year when my mom was visiting.Continue reading “Thursday Hops #18”

Thursday Hops #17

After a looooong time of almost exactly an year, we got to attend a family function today. It was my nephew’s engagement. Due to the pandemic, only the immediate family – in India, ‘immediate family’ includes all brothers and sisters of the bride and groom and their families – were in attendance. In all, itContinue reading “Thursday Hops #17”

Thursday Hops #16

As I mentioned in my previous edition of Thursday Hops, we were living in an East Delhi colony when my son was a little boy of five or six.

This week I went to visit my in-laws. Their house is located in a small colony in East Delhi, and they have been staying there for the last 45 years or so. This locality was originally an unauthorized colony, which basically means there was vacant land lying around and someone came along and put upContinue reading “Thursday Hops #15”

Drawing Challenge #Day 11

Well, I’m officially halfway through the 21 day challenge. Day 11’s challenge was to draw a monster! Not something you have ever seen on TV or comics, but a monster straight out of your imagination. I started thinking about the kind of beings scare me the most and the thing that kept coming to myContinue reading “Drawing Challenge #Day 11”

Thursday Hops #14

This week, I stepped out to buy an outfit for a family function next month. I was quite excited, as I was visiting a shopping mall after a gap of nearly eight months. I enjoy a shopping expedition even normally, but due to this long, Corona-induced abstinence, I was determined to savor every moment ofContinue reading “Thursday Hops #14”

Drawing Challenge #Day 10

Day 10’s challenge is pretty simple – I just needed to fill up a page with doodles. Wikipedia defines a doodle as “a drawing made while a person’s attention is otherwise occupied.” I was a doodler throughout my school and college days. Now, I doodle in office meetings. Although some people think equate doodling toContinue reading “Drawing Challenge #Day 10”
