Here is another 'newspaper reader' that I came accross early morning sitting in front of yet to open row of stores. As noted in the earlier post I am fascinated by the number of people reading the daily paper in all different places and postures!

No part of mini sweet pumpkin goes to waste! The inner meat is cubed, cooked into tasty sambar or some kind of curry, the skin cooked and ground to paste with coconut gratings into a delicious chutny and the seeds are roasted and happpily munched on!!!
The sketches below are once again from the first few pages of my journal which I didn't post individually. The red acacia flowers were abundant in early july but now I see the yellow variety blooming all along the roads. I read that the use of the flowers in paints, perfume and medicine dates back centuries. Please check my post A blessing a Day for more on the these two sketches.

I finished my 100th daily sketch on Oct 5 but am really behind in posting them - hoping to catch up in a few weeks! I am totally thrilled that I have managed to sketch each day during my stay here despite the hectic schedule and hope to keep up untill I head back home end of this month. Please do leave a comment let me know what you think of my efforts.
