Sunrise In Puri ( Sold )

Once long ago I drove to Puri with two friends and watched the sunrise , drove back stopping all along the way ... my heart will always hold the beaches of Orissa in a special splendor.

Things fall apart, center cannot hold ... mere anarchy rules the world ...and i am cought it a terrible conflict within myself ...

Contemplating Suicide

There is no peace within … every morning there is this need to not wake up … and the world is a heavy wet blanket that suffocates and weights me down …

A Flower

Would a flower, in some unseen depth of the rain forests look like this - passion - pure and flaming ???

Which Road To Take ????

"I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I --
I took the one less traveled by,
and that has made all the difference" Robert Frost

A Certain Calmness In Life

Water heals, and water calms the spirit ...a quiet walk by a still lake ... maybe some Norah Jones music playing somewhere ... just feeling the wet cold breeze on my face ...

Driftwood is so very beautiful ... like fallen angels ... wise souls ... the sigh after a days work done well ... and the sea forever witness to the struggles of life and death ....

THE VIEW FROM MY ROOM (Sold On 14th March 2009)

Windows are such strange things. Half alluring, half forbidding ... how much do we see ??? And what happens when we change sides ??? These are just random musings ... but my window at home reminds me of birds chirping , summer afternoons and novels waiting to be read.

TIMELESS (Sold On 20th March 2009)

These are houses in Gokarna , the sea side town with beautiful temples and the lovely beaches :) ... A place I'll always remember with a lingering smile ...

Off late been trying to make an oil painting ... coming along a bit slow however ... Shall name it once im done with it ...


Sitting in my hostel room, in Taverekere i dream of a cottage by the sea,taking long walks on the shore , a black lab to give me company and music and movies and coffee for fun ... but as the saying goes 'If wishes were horses, beggars would ride'. For now i paint my dreams so that someday i might live them.


The best gifts are given on non occasions. So says my brother, Anshu, who gifted this easel to me. It was literally a HUGE surprise ...which he lugged all the way from Bangalore to Bombay to Delhi! My first commission - The Batman,was predictably from him ... an enjoyable change from the landscapes i make.
