The only way to have a friend is be one.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson~
There are couple of schools in our neighborhood and I saw everyday groups of girls and boys walking or biking to and from school chatting up a storm, laughing and giggling and exchanging notes. I enjoyed watching them and noticing the dynamics among friends and strangers. The four girls in uniform went to one school and the other lone girl passing them was from a different school as the different school colors proclaim.

I just had to sketch the three forms of coconut - oil in a bottle, the shell that has fresh white meat for cooking and coconut water from tender young coconut to quench the thirst. These were used almost everyday especially since I claim my heritage from the coastal Karnataka in India! That particular day all three were side by side on the shiny black granite kitchen counter with the pink tiles on the wall.

My friend Suniti took me on surprise excursions every so often to special places around Mysuru and I loved spending time with her and away from the daily chores. These cattle were all either old or invalid in some way and were being taken care of in a huge 'Goshale' - old folks home for the cattle run as a charity. The place had a serenity and beauty that was very calming.
