Bingo!! Voila!! Pictures!!!!!!!!


Guys, please understand this is my Eureka moment!! Thanks to Arundhati, I've finally figured out how to upload pics! It is too, too but too exciting. Finally my Leica images can be shared. Yayyyyyy.
Please overlook clumsy layout etc. I'll get better at this as we go along. For now, I am ecstatic. Just as I was when I stumbled upon this clever painting by a talented Polish contemporary artist. It was hanging on the walls of one of the grand salons in the historic Wierzynek restaurant. I was enchanted! Take a closer look - recognise anybody? It's a pretty impressive guest list for a last supper. Shakespeare, Charlie Chaplin, Monroe, Napoleon, Mozart, Picasso, Einstein..... hmmm..... it doesn't get better than that. Make up your own Dream List.... go on, it's fun. Let's start a little contest here - mix and match names. Historical figures, living legends, today's icons...
There's more where that one came from. Lemme know. You want more???

Congratulations Shobhaa. This is a real feat. How did you manage it? I thought you would never give it a try. Well, you did it. And a great post too.

Cool pic more please!

Hmmmm so many people who to choose.....what the heck all of them!

Ustad Vilayat Khan (his sitar sounds divine!), Freddy Mercury (what a rock star), Luciano Pavarotti (divine voice), Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia (makes the flute sound sweeter than ever), Zakir Hussain on tabla add Zubin Mehta & hope they make some amazing music together!!! From music on for stimulating convo add Shobhaa & Dilip De, want Henri Charriere (author of Papillon have to speak to a man who went through what he did & came out pretty sound in body & mind), add Rabindranth Tagore, then Plato add Pliny, Alfred Tennysson, william Wordsworth, Longfellow, ofcourse Edgar Allen Poe,Sigmund Freud to stir things up, Princess Di,JRD & Ratan Tata. I think I should stop now its becoming a big party by the sound of it!!!!

Amazing pic! Can we get more to see??

Pls Love read line written by me.


wo dekho..
waqt guzar rha tha,
aur mein bhul rha tha wo pal bitaaye saath jo humne..

wo dekho..
haath chooth rha tha..
jo thama tha haath saath humne..

wo dekho..
koi dekh rha tha..
aakhri nazar, jise bhar rakha tha aankho mein humne..

wo dekho,
aansu mera beh rha tha...
jise sambhal rakha tha jaane kabse humne..

wo dekho,
hume unhone yaadon tak se nikal diya..
jinhe yaadon mein bhi dulhan bana rakha tha humne..

wo dekho,
wo koi door hai aur kareeb ab hue hai itne ki..
jeena to chahta hu mein bhi magar, saason ko daba rakha hai humne..

wo dekho,
aaye hai sab rone ab mere janaaze par,
par ye kya, jinhe gair samajhta tha mein,
aaj unhi ke kandho par jagah bana rakha hai humne...

I LOVED this pic! Any idea where I could get a copy??
If I were to find substitutes for this concept :

Bernard Shaw & Tagore,(for their engaging pieces)

Vallabhai Patel, Mandela, Martin Luther King (For their astounding vision, courage and initiatives.)

Indira Gandhi (was before my time..but texts on her never fail to impress me!)

Cleopatra (For everything from her rumored beauty and love affair to her tactics)

Flemming (for his penicillin and his contribution to medicine)

Bell (without whom all the teenagers and me would be lost!)

Steven Spielberg (For his amazing talent and creativity)

MJ (the king of pop indeed)

and last and highest on my list Dr. Sumati Bhagwat (my grandmum: the only person I know who could have supper with them and manage to engage each of them in intriguing dialogues!)

Barrack Obama,

Athena,

Salvador dali,

anna kournikova,

laloo Prasad,

Adolf hitler,

Hillary Clinton

frank llyod wright (architect)

Oprah winfrey

Wolverine (an x-men character)


This should be a fun meeting!

cheers !

i believe your latest writing piece was brilliant.

Sidhusaaheb said...

Much better than Picasso's, I'd say, whose works appear to have been painted by a child learning to paint and draw... :D
