Pointelle turns out to be a rather slow but effective way of adding details like shimmer or intricate weaves onto fabrics in a painting. But oh, @michelepetrelli_art has such a ravishingly unhindered way of using the brush on portrait paintings that has got me engrossed this weekend, an inspiration indeed 😌

The recent uproar with Hollywood celebrities Gwyneth Paltrow, Ashley Judd, Angelina Jolie and more have led victims come out against popular film producer Harvey Weinstein amid sexual misconduct allegations. Kevin Spacey of 'House of Cards' fame is to be erased from a completed Hollywood film following the allegations of predatory sexual behaviour against him, with Netflix considering the same for the next season in the TV series. How do we ensure that people don't get away with behaving this way while keeping it aside for their monetary or professional aspects of their lives to have its implicit influence? Is it also true that the allegations are taken seriously only when victims are themselves celebrities or popular figures? What happens with the common man, then? Can we hope that the accused are no longer featuring in their films and productions, in which case, the move could reflect on other industries taking the cue of maintaining similar work decorum and punishments in terms of no other opportunities? Just a few months back was the news of a man masturbating in a local train in Mumbai, or auto drivers who pass by in a jeering manner in most cities taking the opportunity to make unnecessary uncouth comments on all those passing by. How can messages be made to reach such people that everyone's bodies isn't their birthright?

The years of formal education 
The hours of relentless toil
The peak of successful work
Through countries, cultures and people.
All the learning dissolved to nothing 
For he couldn't stand up against 
His mother's dowry demands still.
How did the practice of dowry move from being optional or voluntarily presents to demands of social status? The practice has been illegal in India since 1961 but is prevailing among many families and communities, that have made it a default rite of passage for a woman depending on her caste, skin tone, age and her family's social and economic status. These are largely unreported, except for when validated by the bride facing physical abuse or if the demands from the groom's side is much beyond what the bride's family can afford. If not, doesn't it still remind a totally shameful act and a crime to cave in to? Your wife isn't meant to be seen as a freeloader whose lodging and food expenses are to be recovered as dowry, her contributions to household duties aren't assigned any monetary values-a thankless job for the time and effort she puts in. Your daughter or sister isn't meant to be advertised with an attached price tag in the hope of ensuring she has a life partner, the ones coming in this narrow-minded manner are best kept away from daily life for sure. Your aunts and uncles aren't meant to be pressurised with 'You can give your daughter anything that you want', with the burden of defining a 'respectable' amount in the most inexplicit demand for the same shameful dowry. Do you still see youngsters justifying it because it was in the family for years, and is a matter of status and pride? They're the very people who could have steered the next few generations away from this social evil, but have buckled down into validating their identity and status among a society long obsolete. How can we contribute to changing this and how soon is the question. #inktober2017

The feeble heart fails
Knowing you'll be nowhere in sight.
But the soul discovers and stirs, 
Beaming in a new waking light.
Impromptu shoots and photo stories while exploring sober pastel shades at the golden hour-Come through my window.

I glimpsed into my attempted recreation of 'The Starry Night' with acrylic paints today and realised how striking Van Gogh's strokes remain, almost 18 years after first coming across his work in a school teachers book. Also, the hand painted feature film 'Loving Vincent', reconstructing his life story inspired by his own letters written to his brother over many years just completed its premiere yesterday at his homeland, and unfortunately the list with the worldwide release dates has no mention of India on it at all. The hand painted frames created painstakingly by a large team of artists has that beautifully fluid feel as the trailer unfolded a few months ago, and hopefully this lively tribute will be able to reach more students and viewers by being accessible online someday. β­οΈπŸŒŒπŸ—»πŸŒ

I dread the day you would see
The most convenient excuses in the society 
From the length of her skirt 
Or the blouse of her saree,
For inviting disgrace,
Even if they're reminded that
her body was never 
their birthright, in the first place.

How do we perceive different types of clothing to indicate various levels of sexual consent, and where did this idea spring into mind? Is it from school days with uniforms, that anyone with a knee length skirt was called out separately to be told of distracting boys in class? Or was it a convenient length for the student to be using between the lengthy and the short skirt versions?What happens when the same set of girls and boys are into sports, in their shorts and jerseys? Are the girls to be told to not be in shorts with the same issue of being an unnecessary distraction to others while they compete in athletics?We as students were spoken to about uniforms and dress codes with the idea of minimising differences between economic backgrounds of families that we come from in a learning environment we all share, would the best way out of schools and colleges be to dress comfortably for ourselves, and responsibly for the occasion/place? For each person telling you that your skirt is too revealing, there is probably someone else who would find their kurta side slits or the back of the sari blouse as much. A speaker with a formal skirt at a conference is there to present her research as much as another in a salwar kameez, and a mother driving her kid to school in capris is as interested in her child's well being and upbringing as another clad in a sari. To what extent are we to propagate the notion of being overly judgemental with clothing and sexual consent among siblings, students and children, if not the elders? #inktober2017 #inktober #inktoberindia #instaart #instadaily #instagood

Try not to
compare, convince,
control, cheat on, or
betray her.
Treat her instead,
with the same respect,
love and care,
you'd want your sister to receive
from her soulmate.

With marriages not conventionally being by 15 of 20 years of age from the time of our parents or earlier, and youngsters still pursuing higher studies at 25, the idea of companionship has become a challenging concept with lesser of the right people to talk to during personal dilemmas. Unlike other circumstances, not all parents, siblings or friends are open to having certain conversations, and certainly not all advices are unbiased or right. Social media makes it worse for some apart from peer pressure, of wanting to be seen 'together ' with someone, or anyone really, but one can never grow when constantly being critically compared to others in a relationship. Are we in love with the idea of an ideal person being our partner, or can we accept them for the unique individuals they are and treat them with the respect and encouragement we would want our siblings to have from their partners-as more than just a romantic bond, but being there in all circumstances? If not, it's probably not someone sharing your life with, sweetheart. #inktober2017 #bangalore #india #inktoberindia #inktober #instaart

'Saving the Earth' -
Does this idea amuse you?
Our mother, creator, nurturer,
Vainly watching us fight, hate, pollute, suffocate,
Continuing which we'll all be forever wiped out,
But not Her, She will remain.
With time, she will heal herself from our bruises,
And sustain on her own.
She will go on.
So it is mostly us
That will need to be saved.
From ourselves.

Urbanisation and development seems to always be at the price of our natural surroundings to an extent that we take it all for granted. We have real estate firms having destroyed forest lands with rich ecological value to make way for homes, and then claiming how owning their property lets you live 'at the heart of nature'. Or the solution to most infrastructure or public transport related challenges which could involve less hazardous roads, well planned sewage systems, practical innovations of rainwater harvesting or the importance of waste segregation always takes a backseat, while the most commonly implemented is unfortunately tree felling-for the apparent reason of 'making space.' While fruit trees are sometimes spared for providing a byproduct for human consumption, we fail to look beyond our material benefits and understand that trees are the very reason we breathe, and are alive. Ask someone who's been breathless and dizzy at any Himalayan trek above 20,000 ft that brings its critical state of low oxygen-you'll know exactly how much this means. Our garden city is very much in need of inhabitants with this understanding, with which we can hope to see it back to its glory someday. #inktober2017 #photooftheday #inktoberindia #inktober #instadaily #instagood #bangalore #india
