My recent trip to the Victoria and Albert Museum got me such great pictures and inspirations for my next design process that I went into a little CO (Creative Overload)!
All the pictures are pretty straight forward.

Every creative comes to that crossroad once a while(If they are like me, everyday).
The choice of doing a job which JUST manages to satisfy your creative needs but pays your bill,OR, do what they love the most, and just not care of the bank balance.
Well, I am trying to walk on the thin line which divides these 2 choices. Over ambitious? OH YES it is, I have barely gotten any time since I started my day job earlier in the month, to do this, what I love the most.
So I have so many pictures adding to my archive, but just haven’t had the time to sit down and write about them.
So this one has been due long, and I apologise to you Charlene, for keeping you waiting for so long, but I must admit you were always on my mind.
This is a funny one actually, as most of my incidents, this one is at SOUTH Bank in London again, right in front of the National Theatre, I saw this girl walk by, but till the time my eyes sent my message to my brain, and my brain responded in “GO CLICK”, and that message was processed back to my action, Charlene had walked a few yards ahead already, so me at my best, did the disappearing act on my friends(who by now don’t consider it rude, if I drop out of a conversation to go click someone..they just keep walking, and know I will join them wherever they are…Bless!)…so continuing from the disappearing act, I chased Charlene, and almost startled her, catching up on my breath, I say the usual, and I am greeted with the warmest smile and laughter.
So here is Charlene, in her Swarovski ring which she adores, and her summer dress contrasting the Khakhi green Jacket!
Hope you enjoy this Charlene.
I come from a small little town tucked right at the bottom of the hills in the North of India.It is like Pleasant ville, A lake with Swans, the Sun rising from behind the hills, Sunny Winter Days, Friendly neighbors, sometimes Over friendly:), Well that is how I remember it to be.
I left that town good 7 years ago, but still have loads of friends and family there, and I hear the sounds and the raves for these VERY talented kids on the block, Hari-Sukhmani, known for their seamless blend of Folk and Electronic music, where Sukhmani’s very sensual voice compliments and blends in Hari’s excellent music taste!
Have a feel of their music on their website : http://www.harisukhmani.com/
Well, you must wonder why I write of Music, as that has nothing to do with VM( Vanity Moments), but Hold behold… as this Duo comes with a lot of Oomph, and all those who have been lucky listeners to their Gigs both in India and Australia, will definitely agree with these Talented Musicians having a distinct style signature!( Don’t we love that combination??!!)
I will definitely be the one posting about their Visit to Lovely London ( Hint Hint ).
So let me raise the curtains to these fellows out here, without further delay.
Hari & Sukhmani at one of their many gigs.
- Special attention to the Ring, people!

I think I should make walking the South Bank a regular routine of my time in London.It should be a fixed part of my time-table, But if its fixed, I don’t think it can be spontaneous?Or could it be?
Anyways, right here on the South Bank looking at the river flow by, with the same Man I see everyday, playing the “Rivers of Babylon” there I was being rude and interrupting these Icelanders (Ok come on I can’t really wait for people to finish their conversation and then go ahead poking my camera in their faces).
Now every time I do this, I expect the worst, coz I could get..Hmmmm NO THANK YOU! or Sure go ahead!!
This was the “Go ahead”..Phew!!
Special attention to the rings and the Nail art:)
The look of the day was the "70s". Well played with the Hippie Headband with a twang of the feather detail.
This was classic,
So I went up to this group in my usual self, and rattled on how I have this blog..and may I click a picture..and etc etc.
Next I know is they say “Pardon, Je ne peus pas parler Anglais“!
So there I had to muster up my past lessons in French(wished I had practiced more!), and somehow explained how “J’adore le ring” and the “Rouge Gloves“.
Well, we somehow spoke in sign language and she agreed to be clicked.
Lesson learnt: Try speaking a language you learnt in the past!
Sorry guys no details on where she got this from! But she was looking stunning in her faux fur Coat and the red gloves and I LOVEE the ring!
