Like most of the young girls I loved to paint , sketch, colour,draw .....and do every thing related to what we call as ART. Never trained formally I took fancy to it as a subject but my sketching was limited to drawings and shadings of T.S. Lungs : Frog or the Floral diagrams of Cucurbitacae,Malvacae and Rosacae.
Being a biology student had its own share of advantages...like being able to draw. Though I was deeply interested in sketching I was not the best sketcher for all those T.S. and L.S. of cockroaches, mice and frogs.

For me no solace was their in Art section also as whenever I peeped in the art files I find ridiculous designs of lamps , tea glasses ,floral creepers and climbers looking completely lifeless and particularly ugly. They were called 'Aayat mein alpana', 'Saree ki kinari' , 'tribhuj mein pushplata' etc. It repulsed me and I decided not to study art - A BIG MISTAKE. though I realised it later in life.
So much so for the art inclination.
