Painting and a song of Sri Rama

This post is precious for me. I have been longing to post this. The busy schedule and my health kept me away from postings. But for sure I want to post as much as possible.

  During my search for new dolls, suddenly a thought kept coming , to buy Sree Rama. I was searching for a perfect piece from many years. But somehow this was waiting for me I believe. One day I took an auto and was heading towards my home. I saw few vendors selling as usual plaster of paris dolls by the road side. He had lot of collection. Although I was attracted by it, I said I have enough collection for this year and went ahead. But I could not resist. As I headed further, I had to ask autowala to stop and walked back. Then to my surprise, I saw few Rajasthani dolls which were not usual. I bought them for a cheaper price. Then I asked for Sri Rama's set(deciding that which may not be available for sure). To my real surprise, he showed me this size and a bigger one. Sky was the limit to my happiness, as I got this 'perfect' piece for a very cheaper price.
   I bought a plain white set,as I wanted to paint this. The purpose of this long story is certain things are just destined for you, but we need to have patience.  I know you are drooling to see this (isn't it?)

A song on Sri Rama is posted too. Hope you like it.

Dasara gombe/bommalu/golu 2010

Yet again here I am with Dasara dolls for this year. The year was more fun. Although preparation for this year was very bad, I could manage to keep the dolls well in time.
I went to Bombe mane in Mysore and bought few dolls. The model of mysore and dasara procession has been showcased very beautifully.
Some of the dolls are hand made and most of them were purchased. Hopefully you will enjoy these photos.

The cricket stadium is the main attraction this time. Myself and my sister spent a day making this stadium. Hope you enjoy the photos.

Warli painting and paper art

Long waiting in my draft, here is my work on terracota pot. I had visited one store where there was warli painted pots. Inspired by them, got this terracota pot from pottery town. I have painted these warli figures with acrylic colors.
 Painted another pot in blue which I gifted to my sister. Do let me know how this has come out. If you want to see any improvement, do let me know.

Apart from this I tried paper art.  Inspired by tiny girl suits(which were got from a craft shop here), created this theme.  I have created few more girl suits on my own which are hanging with cute little hangers. Aren't they cute.

Will be waiting for your comments.

Kabhi Shaam Dhale... 'Sur'

I am back with a good post....guess...yes I am posting a new song today. Finally could record , mix and publish this post.
This post follows a promise of a song to many readers of my blog. I have been busy with work, music classes and other craft and paintings...

The song is a hit number from the movie 'Sur'. All the songs in this movie are great. Singer of this song is Mahalaxmi Iyer. I admire her voice and the sharpness in the voice.
I have come across people who have good voice, want to sing but hesitate and do not know how to practice. To all those, my suggestion is to keep singing in your full voice(without hesitation)at home. This opens up your voice and it sounds original :)(Do not over practice or over strain your voice)

Without much is the song.
Kabhi Shaam Dhale...(Download)
Would love to hear all your comments...pleeaase..
