# Art is Free #

There is no must in Art because art is free…

Sometimes back when I retired from a bank job, suddenly I started feeling emptiness, even finding it difficult to spend time.  

I was always a busy man but all of sudden felt me jobless man.   It felt as if life had stopped.    I therefore began to think of different ways to get back the life on the track.

So many ideas started coming in my mind, why not think that unfulfilled hobby should be brought back to life.  

It is almost year ago I started learning  of drawing and painting and incidentally I got one tutor for the purpose while I use to visit at the tutorial class of drawing and painting  for my granddaughter .

I also joined the class of drawing and painting to pass the time there, One day while writing my blog, I use some sketch in the Blog and was published.

After reading my blog, one of my friend’s messages came …  Verma ji, how long has the ghost of this drawing gone. You have never had this hobby before?

Looking at their message, my face smiled.   I suddenly remembered that incident.  In those days when I was posted at Kolkata, I use to walk from office to metro station to come back home from the bank,

 One day in the evening I was walking from office to metro, I saw a great artist on the way.  He had both his legs and one arm cut and possesses only his right hand. But he used to make a sketch on the street everyday with colored chalk with the help of only hand.

Sometimes a beautiful drawing of Lord Shiva and sometimes Mother Durga was made. I would go through those roads every day and see him drawing sketches in the evening and would be happy to give some money for his talent..

I used to look at him and think how happy he is to create such an artwork in the life of such a lacking. He made it the basis of his livelihood.

I was very impressed by his passion and I also had a desire for drawing from that day. Now when I have retired, I am able to get enough time to fulfill that suppressed desire.

That is why I am also started drawing and painting.

I replied to my friend accordingly to make the aware of the fact .and sent some artwork and sketch too … You can also see my sketches here and please do not forget to give your comments…

    Anything I can not transform into something marvelous,
    I let go. Reality doesn’t impress me. I only believe in intoxication,
    in ecstasy and when ordinary life shackles me,
    I escape, one way or another. No more walls..
    Be happy….Be healthy….Be alive….
