The artists’ defence

Diaries & blank pages, get me all excited!!

I love stashing notepads like a kid would, candies..

Somehow I can’t remember where I put my collection of fine tips (pens)..

That’s another thing I love to stash

♥️

The waves get me all excited

And the sand & the shore..

The sand toys would be the cherry on top,

The sunset: one ‘to go’ please

♥️

The blue waters of the pool

Are another starting point

They get me all started, till I find

The rhythm of my heart beating out loud

♥️

Jigsaw puzzles are a real mystery

Only till you get them all sorted

N then again you wanna shuffle it all,

N start again .. I can go on n on

♥️

Now movies are the real deal..

Like my first love or something

N probably my last love too..

I could watch them till the end of eternity..

♥️

Travel & vacations kind set me up,

To be my best, best self

A pair of flip flops or maybe a pair of sneakers

Are all I need (not really 😝)

♥️

Hide n seek, outdoors or in my very home,

Cheering for my kid are all worth my time

It’s so much fun to hide n then be sought

Like a gift unwrapped..

♥️

Now food is also the love of my life

Nachos, burritos n desserts..

Maybe doughnuts or waffles

Or anything sweet.. I’m all set

♥️

On a dull n boring day, I’d really visit the chopper

The guy who chops off my super short hair,

Hats off to him..he channels the ‘rebel’

♥️

I change my name to ease it up,

Truth be told,cuz I feel dichotomous

I find myself oscillating between the two ends

One being my home, the other my dreamy place

♥️

It’s weird & kind, normal yet shaken up,

I feel so odd, like no others around

I’ve embraced it now, it’s nothing to be wary of

It’s just me, being ME!!

♥️

I’m mediocre yet deep n rich,

My life feels textured in complexity

I’m easy yet multiply skilled

N yet I treat it not like bread n butter..

♥️

Fun is like the secret thread

Running the fabric of my life

I don’t really care for anything much

Other than family, fun & my share..

♥️

My share of being me,

True to all of it’s complexity

Lazy, easy & ever changing

My mantra is Inconsistency

♥️

I’ve stopped caring if others get me or not

Cuz it’s my job for sure

N I do a pretty ace job at it

I back myself up, to the core

♥️

I like to call myself WEIRDO,

As if it’s a badge of honor

N it’s an award if no one gets me,

It means I’m bang on!!!

♥️

My friend,my darling friend ‘inspiration’

Visits me in spurts

But when she does,

She kinda rocks me, like a storm

♥️

An artist’s life is so full n rich,

N yet so sparse and scanty

It’s like the rain, of inspiration

Is the steering wheel, controlling all the bounty

♥️

N yet, if given a choice,

I’d choose this exact same life again

I’d change absolutely nothing about it

Other than make ‘inspiration’ my best, best friend

♥️

Baarish : An outpour 


The steeper the climb,
More exciting gets the finish line..

Endless attempts to roughen the challenges
All for a ‘frivolous’ thrill 

Easy to make ‘tough’ 
A way of life

and pretend we are someone else
cuz who we really are, is too simple

Sometimes all we need 
is an easy catch 

Our flawed beings 
can simply be

patchy and honest,
blunt and blotchy

cuz gravity doesnt judge
the outpour drenches all alike

all the masks finally
washed away

getting what we truly want
can never be this ‘steep climb’

cuz what we deeply desire
is outpouring with misconstrued ease

The energy of a tribe❤️

being together multiplies the joys n divides the sorrows❤️


The energy captured in the piece of art above (celebration depicted in Warli art) is that of abundance and ease!

Even as I was creating this piece, connecting every being to the other brought tremendous joy. I could feel the joy of the people dancing together, holding hands, or holding each other! 

Also, I loved imagining the elephants and the horse being a part of the tribe❤️ enjoying along with the rest!!

A huge tree at the center, depicting love for nature! Kids, co workers enjoying together❤️

This is the energy of our planet!!

We grow in abundance when we share our joys, and exist for each other. We got to take care of ourselves first, fill our cups with self love n then let the love pour to the rest of the world❤️

We were meant to exist as a tribe❤️

We exist together❤️ 

Sending loads of peace, love and oneness to our beautiful planet❤️
