How To Maximize Benefits of Yoga - 1

As I revise my learnings in Yoga, and also introduce Om and Yoga series on my etsy shop, let me start adding few things on this topic. When one does any Yoga posture, there could be different ways to do each step along with breathing. For e.g.

Option A: One may do more number of yoga postures in certain time interval
Option B: One may do a certain posture for longer duration, thus total number of repeats in a given time interval being lesser than in option A.

So which one is better? Option B. In this quality matters most, doing each yoga exercise with quality, holding for longer time gives better results and most benefits of the same.

All in during the time, one needs to continue normal breathing.

Rural India - A new fine art photograph

Rural India always fascinated me as a subject for photography. Hence I wouldnt let go of any opportunity to picture colors of it since I visit such places less frequently. This new photography subject is something that makes me think of lives of the women and girl children from these places. The place I had been to was almost cut off from the "developed" lands, the road connectivity being poor. The land is super-rich and the soil full of mother-earth though. There is definite water shortage though. Tribals do walk down all the way to fetch a "penny" of water. The women and girls do join in their team-work which perhaps motivates them to do this pain-staking job. I was amazed by the smiles and calmness on their faces though, their enthusiasm was commendable and last but not the least- their eagerness to get photographed. This photography made my day :-) For more details on this photography, do visit my etsy shop page

This fine art photograph by Sri is one of my favourites. Now that I am going to visiti Ajanta Ellora caves tomorrow, I remember the beauty of the artworks from the caves even more fondly.

See more specifics of the artwork at

Artist's Corner- Sriraman C R

Dear Readers, please extend warm welcome to my buddy Sriraman (short name- Sri , as seen in the photograph) who is joining my etsy shop - Creations-The Art Shop as freelance artist, in a mutually benefitial partnership. I could have written a lot about him as an artist, all I can say is his photography work amazes me. And I hope it will continue to amaze you as well. I am so delighted to start listing his artworks on Creations- The Art Shop (my etsy shop ). Watch out, for his photography work is getting listed soon...

More about Sri, in his own words..Read on.
"Everyone is an artist in some way or the other. Only the degree varies. Some are born artists, some develop it during their lifetime and there are some who have an artistic instinct.
I probably fit in the last category where I purely go by my instincts to create artworks and my passion for photography allows me to do this.

It was my schooling years in Kolkata, India, when I used to watch keenly a family photographer friend of ours take photos of functions and that got me interested in photography from my early age. But I had to wait for a long time after that before I could own a camera and start clicking. And I had to wait a few more years after that, before I fell in love with the SLRs and now the digital ones.
I am the happiest when I am clicking and always strive to get that 'perfect shot' in whatever subject I shoot. Sometimes I win, sometimes I don't and that's what I love about this art. To sum it up, photography and I are inseparable. "

Globe Trotting of This Lord Ganesh

Well this little original painting, with beautiful dark blue framing (not seen in the photograph, framing was a custom order) is a globe trotter in its own way. Well, friend of mine- Amol, purchased it almost an year ago ( ))when I was in Sydney and he was in the US. He got it delivered to his Pune/India residence. Now that he has been back in Pune, he has basically gifted this Lord Ganesh/Ganesha painting to his cousin- Sanjeev, as he was on his India vacation, who teaches atPrinceton University. Looks like the blue frame and the blue elephant has indeed crossed the continents and blue oceans to find its final destination which a great office space like Princeton University. This particular lord of wisdom has decided to live in this cheerful ambiance filled with great education. Wonderful journey isn't? Sometimes I wonder whether these muted works also do have their own 'lives'? Perhaps yes :-)

Key Holder

Dear readers, just wanted to also update you on another small thing I learned in the world of creations. I took a hobby class for making keyholders. I had promised my mother I will gift her this new artwork for her and dad's wedding anniversary. I made aqua theme based key holder, it had provision for holding 7 keys. And 3 fishes ..colorful.
It turned out nice and now it's being used at parent's place. My husband is excited too about this little work and I will make one for ourselves too. And I have got one order for making it by my aunt. That's a good start. Etsy buyers will see these key holders listed in due course of time. Till then, hang in. Happy New Year.

Experimentation With Prints

I had been thinking of doing this for long time and finally managed to do it, thanks to dad for his knowledge, help and right references. Now that our etsy shop is picking up and paintings being liked and loved, we got some select paintings printed and thus reproduced. The reproduction was done on canvas and a good scan quality is very essential. The printing press we know of (that my dad has already worked with) helped us greatly and this small project was thus successful. The idea behind this experimentation is to be able to re-create the artwork and be able to make it available to the buyers at lower costs (Original and print will always defer in pricing). We will see to it that our buyers also see prints in future and be able to purchase those at more attractive prices. Well they say - if you yourself use what you sell, then you are truly committed to what you are selling. Well, I got these prints framed and now I will be able to decor my own home with these greatly framed dad's prints. I have also got one of my dad's large size original paintings framed for my own home (thereby deleting it from etsy shop ...). Three cheers.
