That's the name of my son - Arnajit. I decided to try some calligraphy in Bengali, and chose his name to write. Well, it turned out too small to fill up the space (thanks to the diacritic and variants used in Bengali script). So, I filled up the rest of the page with some drawings as usual.

A busy day in office

Sometimes we have too much work to do at office. Sometimes days are lazy and slow. Who said life should be an average? If there were no ups and downs, what inspiration you would get from this dull life? To create ART? I pass a bit of time in the lazy days sketching little things. Then it becomes a habit. So, even on a busy day I would squeeze out little time for some quick drawings. May be a pair of faces!

Sorry that I can never crop my pictures to the same size.

"Put your hand on your heart,"
The old man said.
"Inside you, there is power,
There are ideas,
Thoughts that no one has ever thought of,
There is strength to love,
Purely and intensely,
And to have someone love you back - 
There is power to make people happy,
And to make people laugh - 
It's full of compliments,
And the power to change lives and futures.
Don't forget that power,
And don't ever give up on it."

Blue Buffalo

Have you every seen one? a blue buffalo? I didn't. But that's what imagination gives us - where a buffalo can be blue, a cow can climb a tree, a man can survive in outer space or deep sea, without oxygen. The list is limited only by your imagination. btw, you can see the Rx more clearly on this one. Funny, that ever a doctor would prescribe someone to eat a blue buffalo calf, as a cure for all maladies.

Faces and patterns

"Hey! When did you become a doctor?", that's exactly what my colleagues exclaimed upon seeing my prescription pads. But instead of writing prescriptions I was drawing them (is this supposed to be a joke!?!). Never mind. If one would use their mind so much to mind, then they would not have a mind to mind their own work! So, here I'm - doing little sketches of whatever came to my mind. Or whatever my small selection of tools would support. The best things I found were doing sketches similar to zentangles.
