Ramesh one of our teachers has been working on Pen and Ink studies in classs while we have been struggling with our Portrait exercise. I've been sorely tempted to copy him but decided that maybe i should do them at home :p. Made this one and one more of me last night in my sketchbook. Mr Vijaymohan's I have made using a photograph taken in class a few days ago as a reference.
.......... we now have Jasmine. The girl sitting on the far right. It's still the settling in period for her. A bit of a shirker but as Ramesh says we might as well put up with her as we have her for just a short while more. Till we move!!

Well this one is just what you need. upload your photograph from your desktop or Flickr account and make some basic changes - rotating, lighten, brighten, change contrast, crop, red eye reduction, teeth whitening :P etc.. I tried it out with a photograph of mine from Flickr. Nice Results. And like quite a few other things on the web nowadays it is free :)

All you avid readers are sure to enjoy this one. Feed in the names of a few books and it suggests the names of books that you would like to read. This seems to me to be similar to Amazons recommendations and it is based on the data given by other users of this service. if their suggestions are ones that you have already read add them to your list and look for more. I've just fed in about 10 books and got a nice list of suggestions from the site. Let me know if it helps you find a good book.

The room on the top left with the windows open is our den. I'm currently sitting at the desk typing away :D
The window to the right of it belongs to the guest room and the windows below the kitchen, which is just above the garage.

"Digital postcards for the people by

all 600,000 images*, or lookup your own pix to create a unique custom postcards."
Oops! It isnt done automatically online. You need to mail your photograph to the website owners. They will decide whether to adjust the photograph for free or charge you a sum. Sounds highly avoidable! Just forget it.

Recipe took more than the day or two that I had promised back in October - Sorry!
Tried the Recipe out on the Mehra family last Sunday. Everybody liked it and it's very easy and you may want to try it out too.
I used a kilo of King Fish (Surmai) instead of Hilsa. Apparently it is a sea fish. As it was a large fish, I could easily get it deboned.
Ingredients - 1kg fish, 1 coconut grated, 12-15 whole red chillies, one tspn of imli, 10-15pcs of Tirphal (must have ingredient), 2 tspns of salt
Method - Put the Tirphals in some water in a small bowl and set aside, cut the fish into approx 1 and 1/2" cubes, apply haldi and salt liberally and set aside, grind the coconut, red chillis, imli, salt into a rough paste, add the water in the tirphal bowl while grinding, pound the wet tirphal seeds and add to the masala, wash the salt and haldi off the fish pieces and mix in with the masala in a bowl.
Set the oven to 200deg or cake baking strength :P, take a oven proof dish and spread a thin layer of oil to prevent the huggi from sticking to its surface, spread the fish and masala evenly in a single layer, add in the remaining masala into the gaps, put in oven for half an hour, check after 20 mins to see that the top is not getting too dark, if it is and the fish is cooked (feel with fork) shut oven and leave inside.

Got this one from gals.
In honor of women's history month and in memory of Erma Bombeck.
IF I HAD MY LIFE TO LIVE OVER - by Erma Bombeck
(written after she found out she was dying from cancer).
I would have gone to bed when I was sick instead of pretending the
earth would go into a holding pattern if I weren't there for the day.
I would have burned the pink candle sculpted like a rose before it
melted in storage.
I would have talked less and listened more.
I would have invited friends over to dinner even if the carpet was
stained, or the sofa faded.
I would have eaten the popcorn in the 'good' living room and worried
much less about the dirt when someone wanted to light a fire in the
I would have taken the time to listen to my grandfather ramble about
I would have shared more of the responsibility carried by my husband.
I would never have insisted the car windows be rolled up on a summer
day because my hair had just been teased and sprayed.
I would have sat on the lawn with my grass stains.
I would have cried and laughed less while watching television and more
while watching life. I would never have bought anything just because it
was practical, wouldn't show soil, or was guaranteed to last a
Instead of wishing away nine months of pregnancy, I'd have cherished
every moment and realized that the wonderment growing inside me was the
only chance in life to assist God in a miracle.
When my kids kissed me impetuously, I would never have said, "Later.
Now go get washed up for dinner." There would have been more "I love
you's." More "I'm sorry's."
But mostly, given another shot at life, I would seize every
minute...look at it and really see it .. live it and never give it
Stop sweating the small stuff.

and the link below will take you to the main wikipedia site.
Wikipedia, the free-content encyclopedia that anyone can edit. In this English version, started in 2001, we are currently working on 546046 articles.
Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
a miniature garden in an artificial environment, in which small plants and animals may be kept as ornament or for educational purposes. Fish bowls, small fish tanks, large bottles, and carboys are often employed as containers for terrariums; such vessels permit the necessary entrance of light for photosynthesis by the plants, and are suitable for display. The most important aspect of a terrarium is its relatively high humidity, maintained either by using a container with only a small aperture or by keeping the container covered. The humid atmosphere enables mosses and other sensitive woodland plants to flourish.
I've been thinking of trying this out for a while. The advantage is that since it is sort of sealed, it needs to be watered once every 2-3weeks!! Currently I'm trying to grow a Green Chilli Plant. Not in a Terrarium as yet! Ma, do you want to try it out?? The Aquarium is still at home isnt it? I shall keep you'll posted if I start one.

DON'T CHEAT BY SCROLLING DOWN FIRST!
It takes less than a minute ....
Work this out as you read ...
Be sure you don't read the bottom until you've worked it out! This is
not one of those waste of time things, it's fun.
1. First of all, pick the number of times a week that you would !
like to have chocolate (more than once but less than 10)
2. Multiply this number by 2 (just to be bold)
3. Add 5
4. Multiply it by 50 -- I'll wait while you get the calculator .
5. If you have already had your birthday this year add 1755 .... If you
haven't, add 1754.
6. Now subtract the four digit year that you were born.
You should have a three digit number.
The first digit of this was your original number
(i.e., how many times you want to have chocolate each week).
The next two numbers are
YOUR AGE! (Oh YES, it is!!!!!)
THIS IS THE ONLY YEAR (2005) IT WILL EVER WORK, SO SPREAD IT AROUND
WHILE IT LASTS.

Wow! What a truly wonderful treat it was. And I had to push myself to leave before it ended. She has a wonderful voice - truly. She e'en sang my favourite - Uzr aane mein bhi hai. If ever you get the chance, grab it and go watch her. This is one of the things that I like about Delhi. Easy access to concerts. This one was my fourth! .... and so far the best!!
