Oxford is famous for its spectacular architecture – but many agree that the Radcliffe Camera is its most beautiful building. This is a small attempt by me to capture, at least half of the beauty that Rad Cam is! The Rad Cam, also known as the “heart of Oxford”, was designed by James Gibbs built between 1737 and 1749. It has been a ‘camera’ (or … Continue reading Oxford | Radcliffe Camera

I don’t know if you all have noticed but New York has a signature style in their dwellings. They have a metal stair case on their street frontages. Has that rough, rugged look. So many movies and TV series have taken us through them. The balcony scene in West Side Story, Spiderman etc. Anyway, this one in 9th Street was captured on paper by me!

Hi everyone! I know I haven’t posted anything since long. Well, let me tell you something – I haven’t even read something for very long, haven’t journaled, haven’t sketched or illustrated! What the hell did I do all this time? I kinda got married, had functions in three different cities, had a fabulous honeymoon, and finally moved to a familiarly new city into a new … Continue reading Stop! Breathe! Catch-Up!

What do you imagine about when you hold that brush and make a stroke? What do you see when you click a beautiful picture? Where does your mind run when you hold that pen and scrawl a brilliant poem? What do you think when you listen to that music and sway yourself to create a dance piece? Continue reading What’s in your mind?
The minute, duly observed in the honour of the dead. The words that rolled each night to the other side of the bed. What returns to haunt when a door is brutally closed. That mark on her body of a will that is often forced. The opportunity to listen so others can get to speak. The sound of apathy, also the strength in the weak. Continue reading Silence
The other day my friend and I were sitting in the Londoners Bistro & Pub in GK 1, when two guys came up to us and started a conversation. They definitely wanted to buy us a drink, or may be take us out for a coffee. They complimented us. We smiled. We refused politely. They smiled. They left. Although we politely refused their offer, I … Continue reading Delhi Moments | Egoless Rejections
You’ll think its crazy, how I spent so much money to travel (my last Scotland trip), only to come back and tell you that the best part of my trip – was how I sat in a park for hours, doing nothing. Or that the best part of my trip was how the streets smelled like coffee and echoed with music.And I love how I … Continue reading Why I Travel?
The Headington Shark is a rooftop sculpture located at 2 New High Street, Headington, Oxford, England, depicting a large shark (25 foot to be specific) embedded head-first in the roof of a house. It’s creepy, but it has become a piece of history for Oxford! It had ‘crashed into the roof’ without planning permission, in August 1986, the 41st anniversary of the dropping of the second atomic bomb … Continue reading Oxford Moments | Shark On The Rooftop
