A Walk in the Park

We lost our way in a park, panicked and called 911. In our defense, it spreads over 600 acres, and even the rangers had trouble locating us. We would have been stranded among unknown grass and horse droppings much longer, if it wasn't for the geese flying towards the setting sun.

It was probably a little much to expect a helicopter to come rescue us, but the nice park rangers gave us a ride back through the rocky roads of Farmdale Reservoir on the back of one of these!

Jaggers the golden doodle

Jaggers from Aparajita R on Vimeo.

The true story of a golden poodle named Jaggers and his encounter with a hair dryer, based on one of several interesting animal encounters of my sister, the veterinarian!

(His owners named him after the song by Maroon5- Moves like Jagger, hence the soundtrack.)

Sunny Sloths

Eating oranges and being lazy in the Sun

Friday, July 20, 2012


We went to a Zoo, the tiger slept out in the sun, and the lemurs played in the shade. The Africa section had groovy African music playing in the background, drum beats and chants; I wonder if the animals were bothered by these sounds. The petting section with ponies and donkeys being petted by us more "evolved" monkeys. Some animals in pairs, some by themselves, running around, chasing each other, or just lazily lying about. I got the impression the animals were bored, and possibly intrigued by how excited we all were, wearing our caps and eating ice cream.

Missing Mumbai

I haven't had much chance to draw people lately, possibly because of the vast population per-square foot difference between a small Midwest city to Mumbai. Here are some sketches of commuters in the fast, mostly efficient and always crowded Mumbai locals!
