Its been a while here...
No, it wasnt because of those scary blank moods...
Am busy...mortherhood,work, hobbies........yada yada yada...:)
what have I been doing ...well I enrolled myself to tanjore painting classes ...its been a dream come true...

Presenting "Maithili" whoz joy had no bounds when she recieved her beloveds ring while being captive in the hands of Raavana...

Its said Tanjore Paintings are usually the greatest narrators of the legends and the Gods of our ancient and glorious culture...whom do I potray being in the limits of tanjore painting rules was a big question...
Mam came up with Ganesha ,Lakshmi, Dashavathara and many more excellent pieces for me to choose.
But the rebel in me wanted to do a little different from the norm as always!....Thats when I saw the picture of Sita and I knew what I am gonna work on instantly.

Why Sita,
I picture her as a woman of substance...the woman, who was tough like a diamond and soft as lotus....
An adorable daughter who was beauty personified in and out.A loving wife who stood by her husband all times even when she was asked to proove her worth.The First single mother history ever had known who brought up her children all by herself wihtout any riches.A self esteemed lady who rejected her husband, when she was asked to reproove her worth to live with him after all her sacrifices.
She has been the most moving , most delicate character.. ...

It took nearly 6 months to complete the work...A big hug and love to amma and achan for taking care of Manu when I got restless to complete the work.
Even after not being so regular to the class I still managed to complete it!!!! thanks to Premalatha mam for her constant guidence and to Raji Aunty with her lovely smile for motivating and tolerating the ever nagging me!
.... plus a bunch of new friends ...Vishnu, Anitha, and ofcourse girls rock!

and to drop the curtain...Thanks hubby dear, for being there with a double thumbsup always...
and thanks for sponsoring the next project -the Radha Krishna ...and yeaaa I havent forgoten the driving class :) :)

Are preetha and smitha sisters in Pune? I knew Smitha earlier who did MBA from University of Pune and then later on was working in UK as well for a short period of time after spending a lot of time in BPO call centers etc. I am trying to reach her, but I can not find her email or phone. If this is the right person, have her send me email at

Smitha: i guess we would not meet. I am in pune on 23/9/2010 and I can be reached at 9163067739. I think you are the right person because I remember you always called your sister (Pritha) Dhii... so based on what I have read here, I think you are the right person. so if you are in PUne, I want to surprise you. AN old friend. GG

Preetha, we don't know each other (yet), but I really liked your concept of Sita as a single mother; hadn't thought of her like that. The painting is exquisite, and a nice change from cherubic Krishnas :)
