MUMBAI Postcards

In a world that is ruled by technology, all it takes is a single touch to wish someone for a specific occasion. Imagining receiving a wish the 90's way out of the blue with a few hand written words of love and care is undoubtedly going to throw us off balance; in a good way that is. The realisation of someone taking out time for us to write their feelings and share it via post would definitely elate us. I want to give you all that opportunity to get in touch with your folks with a personal touch. I shall be printing postcards very soon and the theme this time is MUMBAI. The all encompassing city that it is, no Mumbaikar should miss this awesomeness. This would prove to be a beautiful chance to flaunt the city's best frames that would carry close to the heart messages from you to the targeted one! Come back soon to check out the collection. Good day! Grin Wide!

Umasutam Shoka Vinasha karanam
Namami Vighneswara pada pankajam ||

Apsaras of ODISSI - The story

Shifting to Bangalore from Mumbai was a relief which I cannot express through mere words. Alright alright! You can curse me all you want for leaving behind the 'city of dreams' for Bangalore. But I have my own satisfactory reasons for wanting to settle in the 'green city';  

1. To get away from my parents.
2. The active art culture here. 
3. I was not fit for Mumbai. 
4. I like to get to know new places and people.
5. Most of the artistic friends I know via social networking are here!

So here I am finally in Bengaluru, doing what I love, exploring life to its fullest and having a ball with lovely people I have newly made friends with! The 'Apsaras of Odissi' is definitely one of the many means of enjoyment. Ashwini Raghupathy and Kristina Jones are the 2 lovely souls who I met in Nrityagram in the year 2011. Ever since then, I kept in touch with Kristina. From her, I learnt that Ashwini had started ARPAN, an organisation where she devoutly grooms people interested in learning the dance that is "Poetry in motion"- ODISSI. Presently, Arpan consists of 6 dancers and they are ready to expand their horizons and nurture the art they know and love the most. I got in touch with them within a month of moving to Bangalore. To my pleasant surprise, Ashwini came forward asking for a photo-shoot of them all. I agreed immediately and oh boy did we hit it off!

My next post will consist of the 'Apsaras' pose for me with utmost patience and passion. For now, I leave you all wanting for more with a fun picture I clicked of them on our way to the Cubbon park; the place of photo-shoot.
