Guest Blogger with Gnaana

We live in a time when work often takes us thousands of miles away from home,
we build our nests and grow families far far away from home.
In such a time and age, all of us feel the need to stay connected to our roots,
and to help the next generation relate to those roots as their own,
to help them know where they belong and identify.
At Gnaana, parents find ways to do just that, as the Gnaana ideology says,
'we bring the wisdom of the past to the children of the future'.
Right from this message by its founder, Aruna (the 'Maharani of possibilities', indeed!)
to the Gnaana blog which is consistently publishing informative posts for parents,
I found their concept and design brilliant as well as extremely
relevant to the way our lives are as of today. Their products are super-adorable,
the das-avatar puzzle being my favourite :). Needless to say,
I was really happy to have been invited to guest blog with Gnaana.
For all those of you who may have missed this, I am publishing with them all of this week.
and the second went on air today: Raising young artists
The third post will be published on Friday, so stay tuned, I'll be posting the third link on FB.
Enjoy your Gnaana tour and hope you'll like the posts by yours truely.
I had said that I'll post my new painting in the next blog,
so here are some sneak-peeks, I am almost done and after seeing this work,
I am sure my readers would understand why I may have missed a deadline.
I would love to hear from you on the Gnaana blogs,
for those of you giving me feedback on FB - thank you.

First of all, this is another gorgeous painting. Hope to see it in full! Your articles on Gnaan rang a bell and reminded me how fortunate I am to have parents that got me music lessons and painting lessons (even when it seemed a luxury at some point since it was a long distance art program from a well known art school in US). I still love painting/art in any form, thanks to the encouragement and support from my parents. I am so grateful to them and thanks to you for the reminder!!!

I recently saw your tutorial on drawing Maa Lakshmi!!! Thank you so so much for sharing those steps. I can't wait to try it (and I may even share it with you)....
