This is one instance where I’m told I look like Nanda masi when she was my age.  And Nanda masi has something of my Abu’s mother in her.  Well, unless I see the black & white photograph that they keep talking about I’m not able to comment. She looks different now. As soon as I lay my hands on the photograph I’ll put it up here and you can see for yourselves. In the meantime, here’s one of Nanda masi and me ( of course! ). She’d come visiting during Diwali. Most weeks she makes special trips home just to see me. I love that!

Nanda masi and me

Art for Uma

There was a lot of debate about what was going to be made, who was going to make what, whether the colors matched etc. Finally, the consensus was to select some pictures from my books and the colors were chosen individually. Mummy has been painting for a while and Amama used to a long time ago. For Abu and Nanda masi drawing was something they hadnt done since leaving school and here they were painting their master pieces in oil! I’m really happy to receive such a gift and they are hanging proudly on my wall. I hope they make some more 😀
