I received a towel as my 20th birthday present. By now you know that the title of this blogpost oozes sarcasm. I will spare the detail of who sent it because that’s pretty much as irrelevant as the person themself.  (Coming to the ^ picture shortly, read below) I was in London at the time and my mother was visiting so we had a full house of very sassy ladies-including my mother’s best friend and my flatmate. Now this so called present was the hype since it was being sent to me from Pakistan and the sender just would not stop talking to me about the contents, packaging and effort put into it all. 4 days after...

I distinctly remember the day my mother taught me how to colour. We were sprawled on the floor with my Cinderella colouring book and brand new Faber Castell colour pencils. We took a page each and began colouring. I was scribbling away on Cinderella’s face and enviously looking at Mama’s neat strokes. She noticed that I had paused and was observing her. Mama asked me if I wanted her to teach me and I nodded, flashing her my keen smile. I was 4 years old when I fell in love with art and just creating things that. I feel truly happy every time I am bent over my sketchbook, engrossed in my paintings or illustrations. I appreciate myself fully every time...
