Red Elephant (work in progress)

Here is what I have been upto : what a year it has been, though my blog does not reflect this, it surely has been one of the most happiest, incredible and all consuming year for me and at the end of it all I can feel is the intense sense of gratitude. Looking forward to 2016!

Professor para project

My grandfathers house in Cuttack at professor para (meaning 'Professor's neighborhood', just across the canal from Ravenshaw collage, where my grandfather spent most of his career teaching)
My grandma aged 18

My grand father aged 33

 The Kitchen
My grandmother cooking for her very large family, The food was usually vegetarian, simple and piping hot, since my grandfather was a vegetarian and could not stand spice, quite opposite to my grandmother who would eat her rice with fiery chilies and loved meat. My grandfather was always served at the table, but my grandmother always preferred the floor.

The Backyard
 This is the backyard of the house, Still figuring out the style and treatment for a very rough idea of a book based on the life of my grandparents

Illustration for UNESCO, As the countdown begins for the UN summit in New York in September, governments are now discussing a new set of universal goals that UN member states will use to frame their development agendas and policies until 2030.

The 17 new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will succeed the previous Millennium Development Goals, which had been agreed upon in 2000 and are set to expire this year.

Johar Club

Illustration done for the diamond jubilee celebration of Johar Club, Munsiyari (Uttrakahand). lots of fun drawing details of the temples, vegetation and the Panchchuli Peaks.

Munsyari also falls on the ancient salt route from Tibet and is at the entrance of the Johar Valley, which extends along the path of the Goriganga River to its source at the Milam Glacier. This year marks the 60th year sports meet.
