The Umbrella bar Exhibition
Yes! It’s finally here again! After a break of almost an year between the last exhibition, The umbrella bar is ready to roll once more!
I am elated to announce my very first professional exhibition.The event is special for me as I will finally be taking a big leap into the art world. There will be a showcase of my recent illustrations, both from my private collection and commercial works, and like always, a whole bunch of my personal sketchbooks for all to see. Apart from this and for the very first time, I have put on sale some of my originals as well!
It gives me immense pleasure to invite you all to join me in the Herwitz Gallery, Hussain Doshi’s Gufa, Ahmedabad, everyday between 4:00 to 8:00 pm, from 29th July to 3rd August to celebrate art with me!
A lot of hours of planning has gone into this show and the countdown has begun. Feeling nervous!
Wish me luck!

Talking Dead
Saw a bunch of male sun birds lying dead on the way home the other day. A conversation seemed to be in progress among these creatures, perhaps maybe they were wondering about an afterlife ?
A topic that has interested us humans for as long as existence itself.The  answer to which,only the sun birds knew.

A picture essay about my travel Illustrations was featured on the Sunday Chronicle yesterday! As excited as I am about it  , I couldn’t get hold of the paper as it doesn’t circulate where I currently am . So , if you’re in the capital please send me the center spread of the Sunday Supplement paper. I will be much obliged.

Swimming among the ruins in Udaipur
An old ghat overlooking the Pichhola Lake was transformed into a playground for young and old everyday early morning. Just a few steps submerging into the water helped transform an otherwise sullen lake into a place of joy. I wondered about the strength of human association and the power of place, so evident before me, at the ghats of Udaipur.

People are made up of places
The mountains have always astounded me, and I think they will continue to, as long as I live. As rightfully said by the Canadian poet, Elizabeth Brewster, I too believe that people are made of places. Places they are born in, places they pass through and places they desire to go.
 I carry within me hints of jungle and mountains, and in my mind, are acres and acres of misty Oak wood forests.
