Rummaging through the "Hidden Treasure"; my late mom's belongings locked up for over two decades, my sister-in-law and brother picked up a neatly packed huge packet and said, these are yours. And to my pleasant surprise and immense pride, I found my "works of art", nothing original, but my genuine effort and love for painting. I have some creative side to me, the gene thing, you bet, my creative mom! I have never ever had any formal training in painting and now feel a deep urge to pursue professional learning in this form of art.
My temporarily faded memory, suddenly became alert and I reminisced that most of the work was done during my undergraduate study years at Nizams College, Hyderabad. I also recalled that I had displayed them during the "Art Exhibition" organised as part of the Nizam College centennial celebrations.
Now as I look at them again and again, I yearn those carefree days when time was at my disposal, with limited multitasking roles in life. And also wonder, was it I who actually produced them ! Anyway there is a magical nostalgic feeling around me and I am loving it.
