Castles in the air - they are so easy to take refuge in. And so easy to build, too.

आम्हां घरी धन शब्दांचीच रत्नें | शब्दांचीच शस्त्रें यत्न करुं ||
शब्द चि आमुच्या जीवांचे जीवन | शब्दें वांटूं धन जनलोकां ||
तुका म्हणे पाहा शब्द चि हा देव | शब्द चि गौरव पूजा करुं ||

There's No Freedom Like That of a Child's Imagination

Jivya's Crop of Rain

This is a story I wrote and illustrated for the children's chemistry site,, using my extremely limited Adobe Photoshop skills.

Spoiler: It deals with rainwater harvesting. It's a story of a village that adopted rainwater harvesting after a period of drought.

I used the Warli style since it is simple and versatile, and adapts itself for narrative illustration. Most of the Warli figures were 'inspired' from other Warli paintings, but the background elements, the city, the forest, the dam and the pool are my innovations.

Do comment on how you find it.
