art tutor for a day

Saturday, January 10th, 2009

Assumed that there is already an initial outline picture on the paper which is to be filled in… only the tip of the paintbrush should be dipped in paint, not the entire brush. first paint […]

ಯಾರಿಟ್ಟರು ಈ ಚುಕ್ಕಿ?

Thursday, June 26th, 2008

ನನ್ನ mobile screen ಹಾಳಾಗೊಗಿದೆ – ಅದರ ಮಧ್ಯೆ ಒಂದು ದೊಡ್ಡ ಕರಿ ಚುಕ್ಕಿ ಆಗಿದೆ. ನನ್ನ ಪುಟಾಣಿ ಜಿಂಕೆ ಮರಿ ಅವನಿಗೆ ಕೊಟ್ಟ ಆಟ ಸಾಮಾನೆಲ್ಲ ಬಿಟ್ಟು ಇದನ್ನೇ ಬೀಕೆನ್ನುವಾಗ ನಾನು ನಿರಾಕರಿಸದೆ ಕೊಟ್ಟಿರುವುದಕ್ಕೆ ನನಗಾಗಿರುವ ಶಿಕ್ಷೆ. ನಮ್ಮ ಕಛೇರಿಯಲ್ಲಿ ಯಾರೋ ಕೇಳಿದರು – ಯೀನೈತು ಸಾರ್ ಅಂಥ. ಹೇಳಿದೆ… “ಅಪ್ಪನ ಮೊಬೈಲ್ ಗೆ ಧುಷ್ಟಿ ಆಗಬಾರದು ಅಂಥ ನನ್ನ ಮಗ ಕರಿ ಚುಕ್ಕಿ ಇಟ್ಟಿರೋದು”

a for apple, b for bat … r for revenge…

Friday, May 9th, 2008

This is a very common scene… when a small baby falls down and starts crying, one way to console him (or her) is to exclaim “BAD floor!!” or “BAD table!” or whatever he bumped against, in a very angry tone. This kind of brings a pause in the crying… Then distract the child further by […]

Monday, February 18th, 2008

Recently someone from America had come on a visit to India. She has two granddaughters in the US, elder one she has brought up with more attention in her own way, compared to the younger one. And there on the phone was her elder granddaughter, wailing away and completely miserable not able to eat properly […]

learning to crawl

Sunday, November 11th, 2007

My son left on his own, first cried a bit trying to get anyone’s attention, and then tried moving around by himself. It seems like such a miracle how hard it is to for us to learn just to move one little inch forward! He was quite persistent for a while, gradually frustration and helplessness […]

what to name him

Tuesday, September 4th, 2007

Thanks a ton – to everyone – who suggested names for my son! Well that almost sounded like poetry, but I guess Robert Frost dosen’t really have to worry about competition That everything is changing – that “The only thing constant is change” – is a well known but most easily forgotten fact. The most […]
