I can’t get over this album sleeve! It’s from an LP of my mother’s, issued in 1964, featuring classical compositions for that most weary sounding of instruments: the shehnai. I don’t really have an ear for it, but what marvelously eye-catching, modern cover art!

This is in Aamchi Mumbai, in the Ranwar village – that is Chapel road and Waroda road – Bandra. There is much better, clearer graffiti up in the area, including the famous Amitabh Bachchan wall, but then, the bike and kitty weren’t there, now, were they? (I also learned that this area was called Colaria Grande by the Portuguese and is one of the original koliwadas, or fishing hamlets, that made up the island of Bondura.)

Isn’t this seriously cool? I wish I had the space for something like this in my home. This is the office of renowned product and industrial designer Werner Aisslinger in Berlin.

this made me giggle, especially since I’ve been so closely involved with the Mughals at work. Taken at the Good Earth’s cafe, The Tasting Room, in Mumbai

I used to love these books (in English) when I was little. This poster reminds me of the Spin doctors’ song.

In Berlin’s river Spree, they put up soaring public art that stretches your imagination and makes you wonder. In Mumbai’s ocean, they want to put yet another Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj.

You know you’re eating in a high class joint when Marie from the Aristocats is the art up on walls 🙂 As I ate, I had “Scales and Arpeggios” in my head the whole time 😀
