Raj Kapoor and Nargis...

Raj Kapoor and Nargis - Watercolors on Paper

Dedicated to Javed Akthar Ji for his wonderful lyrics from the movie Silsila.

मैं और मेरी तन्हाई, अक्सर ये बातें करते हैं
तुम होती तो कैसा होता, तुम ये कहती, तुम वो कहती
तुम इस बात पे हैरां होती, तुम उस बात पे कितनी हँसती
तुम होती तो ऐसा होता, तुम होती तो वैसा होता
मैं और मेरी तन्हाई, अक्सर ये बातें करते हैं...

Let your today be...

Inka and Watercolors on Paper
Let your today be an inspiration for you, tomorrow. When you open your book of past and flip through pages of days, let those touch your inner spirits and wake them up again and again. The only one who is con(si)stantly there with you and for you in this world is "yourself". Don't lose your-self...

Happy Painting!

"In the struggle between yourself and the world, second the world."
-Franz Kafka, novelist (3 Jul 1883-1924)

From Montreal, Canada...

French Shops in Old Quebec City, Canada
It was a wonderful experience in Canada walking along the streets of Old Quebec City and Old Montreal City. Both cities are totally French filled with all French restaurants, shops and architecture. This is a quick sketch of Old Quebec French shop, done in Montreal, on a fine morning. The day started with this quick sketch, another day to go visiting Montreal Museum of Fine Arts...

Keep Painting, Keep experiencing life.

"It's a lovely experience walking around a museum by yourself." - Brad Pitt

It's been wonderful experience visiting all French Structures in Old Quebec City, CANADA. This is one of the beautiful sculptures in front of Fairmont Le Chanteau Frontenac that I couldn't resist doing a fast sketch in Quebec City, as a memory of my visit to this city.

Great experience and now that went into my Art...
