Thank you to all those who attended the Durga workshop in the last few weeks. I truly appreciate the response I got. I am sorry I could not accommodate everyone but I hope to do two more in October just before Durga Puja/ Navratri.

Announcing a brand new workshop. I have  been putting it off for while but with the school holidays and everything, this might be a refreshing break for parents/kids. This is going to be a 2-day basic Madhubani workshop suitable for adults and kids aged 9 and above.

Time: 5-7pm IST (People from India can join this one)

Date: 29-30 August

  • #flashbackfriday Thought I’d post about something other than folk art for a change today. Food Photography!! I was obsessed with it from 2013 to 2015 . My father used to act as my stylist + prop collector and my mother as my hand model 😃🙂. We had so much fun shooting various food items. I submitted a few pictures here and there, some made it to magazines , but this image of my mother’s hands with a tiny basket of hyacinth beans won a National Geographic @natgeotravel contest and later it was published in a book called Getting Your Shot. A few months later they licensed the image and published it in another Nat Geo book called Pathways. 

 I stopped completely when my father passed away in 2015 but the pictures still reminds me of the last few months of fun we had as a family...

Happy World Breastfeeding Week!! (1-7 August)

Disclaimer: This post is not to shame any formula feeding mothers or make them guilty. Fed is best, doesn’t matter if it’s a personal choice or choice that a mother’s body had to make.

Breastfeeding is something I thought I’d never do. I was never really exposed to it much and to be honest felt a bit uncomfortable with the whole idea of feeding a child from my own body.

While I was 7 months pregnant I came to know about the group called “ breastfeeding support for Indian mothers”(many of my friends/followers who are also mothers/ expecting mothers are a part of this group already I am sure) and slowly my perception towards breastfeeding changed and when little M was born, I totally knew what to do.My body was ready to feed my newborn and I felt so powerful that moment. Ofcourse we had our own struggles during this journey but this is one of the most fulfilling experiences I have ever had.

Breastfeeding is more than just milk. It’s the connection you feel, the bond you build with your little one. There’s nothing weird about breastfeeding and if anyone feels uncomfortable when they see a breastfeeding mother and her child, they should just look away. Period.

Would love to know what you think about this artwork of mine.
