Health update: back on the bike!

Hey guys, so after a seven year hiatus, I'm finally back on a bike!! I had met with a road accident while riding my bike on this very fateful day, back in 2009. My legs were crushed after a water tanker ran over them. With no hope of ever being able to walk again to the point of possible leg amputation, it was indeed a really tough time for me and my family. But depsite such hardship, the accident couldn't dampen my spirit and love for cycling. I made a decision back then that I wouldn't quit, and that I would get back on the saddle someday. It took me a long long time to come this far to face my fears, but on my 7th accident anniversary, that moment has finally come! A big thank you for all the love and support during my toughest times. I love you all, and I hope you'll continue to support me and my decision of riding again!

Hey guys, here's a fun little entry for a storyboard contest held at AniFest by TASI (The Animation Society of India) recently.

We were given a 2 day deadline and the following brief.

A thief enters. He/she/it steals something. The alarm goes off which makes the thief panic and run!

Here's what I came up with. I hope you enjoy going through the panels!


I had a lot of fun doing this, and I am thankful to TASI and the judge of the contest, the super awesome Chetan Sharma (of Animagic) for picking me as one of the three winners! I won a Wacom One! Woohooo!! Congratulations to the other winners and participants as well! :)

Shanta bai stickers for Hike app

Woohoo! After Gattu Seengh, here's yet another set of my Hike stickers that went live today! Was quite a challenge to get the attitude of a Marathi maid right, but was tremendous fun! Please use them in your daily conversations! :)

Once again, thanks Ganesh Kotale for the wonderful color suggestions.
