30 day drawing challenge - day 7 - Fav Word

Today's topic 'favorite word'.
Om Namah Shivaya!
The Five Sacred Syllables: The Om Namah Shivaya mantra has five syllables: na-mah-shi-va-ya (sometimes called six syllable mantra by including Om). Thus, Om Namah Shivaya mantra is called five-syllable mantra, or Panchakshara Mantra (panch means five). Among other things, these five represent the five elements of earth, water, fire, air, and space. Thus, the Om Namah Shivaya mantra leads awareness in the reverse order from manifestation back to the source from which manifestation arose.

30 day drawing challenge - day 2

Today's topic was 'favorite animal'.
We always had cats at home and I have always grown fond of them. At one time we got two tiny kittens from my aunts place. They were white as snow and soft as feather. Everyone just fell in love with them.
We used to have wooden floors at home with long corridors. These two would wake up on the crack of dawn and start chasing each other from one end to the other end of the corridors. I can still remember the sound from the wooden floor as they breezed through the passage. It was beautiful; like just the right notes playing.
I tied black ribbons round their necks. I thought that would protect them from bad omen. Well, my granny had told me that works.
But you know life is so unpredictable. Both the kittens used to be always together no matter where they went.
On one unfaithful day one of them ran right on the road. Other ran after him and got hit by a scooter.
This was the first time I learned how much pain a death can bring.
The one kitten that was left with us never ran those wooden floors again.

30 day drawing challenge - day 1

Day 1 topic was - yourself
This is me in a pensive mood. It's funny how Navin reacted to this one. He said it looked like jungle book's Mogli!
It was good fun running to the stores to look for a sketch book and a pencil. Today I need to get a sharpener and an eraser for sure.

30 day drawing challenge

Hello! It's been a while I have posted something about me. Life has been going along, I feel better these days compared to last few months. So there has been a definite improvement! There are times when I feel down and tend to go down the memory lane of episodes when I was in the hospital and feel sorry and dull and sad. But the frequency at which that happens and the triggers that cause it to happen have reduced.

I have felt the urge to start blogging and let go of my frustrations that way but then I have compelled myself to stop and pause for a while. Most of the times, those feelings have gone away. Just making me believe that it was temporary and it was just my low energy at play. I am going to write about those feelings and what I have learned from them.

But today I want to write about this 30 day drawing challenge I came across on pinterest. Check it out here! It's a month long project where you sketch 1 drawing everyday. There are 30 topics in all, one for each day. I am planning to start today and hopefully stay on track and finish them in next 30 days.

Wish me all the best!

Magic in the sky

Most beautiful colors in the sky! Felt the colors just dissolve in me.
I feel privileged and happy to have witnessed these magical moments.

This song kept playing in my mind -

Subah ki kirno ko rokein jo salaakhein hai kahan
Jo khayalon pe pehre daale woh aankhein hai kahan
Par khulne ki deri hai parinde udh ke jhoomenge
Aasman aasman aasman

Kahani khatam hai ya shuruwaat hone ke hai
Subha nayi hai yeh ya phir raat hone ko hai
Kahani khatam hai ya shuruwaat hone ke hai
Subha nayi hai yeh ya phir raat hone ko hai
