Drawings!!!

Just remembered one of my childhood days....
I was never good at drawing from my childhood... Even now I am not.. but atleast do a little bit of sketching these days which are not so bad... (modern art u see)
So this happened when I was in 5th or 6th Std. We had to draw a skull... First thing that came to my mind, "Ma how willI draw the skull"... Ma patiently told me to concentrate on the drawing in the book and draw just like that.. now, I sat the whole evening.. with all my pencils and erasers... should have seemed like I am gonna create the best drawing ever in my life :)
Well after 2-3 hrs (phew!!! long time I know).. I finished it...And to my surprise.. that was the most amazing skull..err drawing I had ever seen... I was too excited.. I ran showed it to mom.. bro was too chotu... he couldnt have got what i wanted to express...then went to my neighbours house.. showed uncle aunty and my friends there.. Then was waiting for dad so that as soon he comes that would be the first to show...
Dad was in shift those days.. so he used to come home only at 11.30 (well those days 11.30 was considered pretty late, nowadays I sometimes have my dinner at that time)
Unfortunately I slept off before dad came...

Next day morning I woke up.. and mom told me I was blabbering in my sleep that I drew well.. My goodness, how much it meant to me then.. :). Then Dad came and told me I did a wonderful drawing :) I was so happy...

It always happens...when you are too much involved in something, you get that as your dream :-)) and the best part in your case is everyone appreciated it !

That is an interesting nostalgic piece of writing. Reading it brought back my own efforts at trying to earn my parents' appreciation of my work as a child.

How about posting your recent sketches in the blog?

I dont have any pictures of those with me as of now... May be sometime later :)

It's in small things that we find pleasure most. And memories of childhood... (have no words to express myself).
Sigh... the good old day...
