The evening aarti at the Harsiddhi Mata Mandir, Ujjain where hundreds of people gather daily to witness the 736 lamps that are lit and to pray. Harsiddhi means “Attainment of Shiva”. Some come here to pray for spiritual gains and some come for materialistic gains and some come to take selfies. The aura that is created here every evening takes you to a transcendental state and I was happy to witness it.
DP Photo Challenge: Wish
Recently I was reading this book, “The One Thing” by Gary Keller with Jay Papasan; and got into thinking about priorities and choices. As adults when we have a choice and everything is at our discretion, is there a clear formula for making decisions so that we can make the best decisions for us and not trade them for just any decision?
I found my answer in PRIORITY, as long as we pause and think what really matters to us and let that drive our day/decisions we will have a sense of progress and can avoid getting trapped in busyness.
This painting was inspired by two thoughts –
“Puli Vesham” – predominantly famous in coastal Andhra where folk artistes done the role of a tiger and dance to the drum beats (dappu) of percussion artistes. The original folk dance was a demonstration of strength and fierce fight between the hunter and the tiger.
The best part of the ‘puli vesham’, many say, was the head gear depicting the various moods of the tiger. Usually the head gears depicted the ferociousness of the animal.
Though it has lost patronage we can still find it in small towns and villages where artistes are trying to keep the culture alive.
DP Photography Challenge – Resilient
It’s been a while I have painted something, one because of a relocation AGAIN… but more than that I have been overthinking a lot about what to paint and planning for a complicated project, but when I couldn’t come up with anything I just took the board and paint and did a simple art piece – which makes me happy 🙂
Second wall art in Progress -started on 22-Aug-2015, let’s see how much time this thing takes 🙂
“Shivi” is my figment of imagination, I wanted to write my own comic series and make her my superwomen. So until I do that, here I just want to dedicate this to all the woman in my life who inspire and motivate me to chase my dreams 🙂

Oh god with curved trunk, large body whose aura is likes light of crores of sun
Please make my entire work obstacle free, forever.
I am not able to capture the true colors and life in the painting. I am going to try some photoshop techniques that I am learning. But in the meantime just wanted to share the painting as I am done with it.
Trying to get out of that slump all over again, so until I buy my easel I plan to play with these messy oil pastels.
