The Indian wife

March 27, 2010 12 comments


A young ,happy indian wife.

I began to think,in India,  just going by the type of attire n look, it is quite possible to say where the person is coming from.  In the same pic, if the pallu (not shown here, its on the other side of the shoulder) is on the right, and also covering the head, its a north indian (marathi, gujurati, ..). If on the left, its south indian. A salwar khameez, then its punjabi. A bigger bindi, could be bengali. No Bindi, could be christian or muslim.  With sari going in between legs, could be telugu or any coastal people.  Wow thats a whole lot of people we are talking about.

I guess now, a general statement could not be said. All are crossing borders and reserving their traditional clothes only for marriages and other festive occasions.

Oneday while flipping through the pages of JC Penney catalog, I thought why not work on clothing , hence the theme ‘Accessories‘.  When I did a quick research on this topic, it didnt take much time to figure out the number and the variety of stuff catered for women clearly outnumbers that for men.   So here are a couple of dress for starters.  The one on left is the ‘polka dots’ design. The other one is a ‘floral design’ . With the onset of spring, floral designs are vogue.

There is nothing much write about this one. The lyrics of a tamil song from ‘Kadalar dhinam’ best describes the sketch.


Kadallenum thervu ezhuthi, kaathirundha maaanavi naan

Unn yennam ennum yetil, naan yennai paartha podhu,

naan yennai namba villai, yen kannai namba villai

The translated version of the above lyrics (with help of few friends)

I am a student who has written an exam called Love and awaiting results (waiting for his reply)

When I saw my results on his book of thoughts,

Neither could I  believe my score nor could I believe my eyes…

I used F,2B and 6B pencils for this sketch.

I wanted to associate an emotion in the title for this but alas I didnt exactly know how to name this one… Commemorating women’s day, this is for all the women expecting a baby or having one…an achievement possible only by them( cliche but true).

I used 2B and 4B pencils for this sketch.

In recent times, the number 1411 has become extremely popular in India.  Thats the total number of tigers currently surviving. Animal activists have been raising their voices for protection of our national animal from extinction .Support and awareness for this cause over the internet is at an all time high. ”Stripey the cub” is one such  group in facebook.  So here is something from my side. I present to you, “Streaky” the older brother of stripey, and folks he says ‘thank you’ for your support.

I have used quite a lot of pencils here,HB,  2B, 4B, 6B and 2H
