The only painting ever done by me ..

The only “painting” by me when I was in 4th or 5th standard. Made with water colors and some brush on a Biology sheet. Nothing Special. I wish someone had allowed me to learn drawing. But they used to say – this is all useless, have to concentrate on...

Angkor through our eyes

Do you remember the day when we went to our first movie together? You were visibly fuming to see me drool over a naked Lara Croft coming fresh out of her bath. On that day in the comforting darkness of Regent, you had asked if I would take you to this temple of Tomb...
