YOGA
(PURWA, ASHISH,SHWETHA,CHUNNU,JAYA)
Namaste mysticism deals with our connection to Devine abundant source of energy. It flows throughout our body as spiritual energy frequencies and becomes clearer as we become more in tune with the universe and our own nature of spirituality. This mystical force present in each one of us, empowers us to make effective changes in our own personal lives and thereby effect the world. We become free of possessing worldly things and become forms of incarnated beings that transcend the limitations of the physical realm. The reason behind unlocking your chakras is purely to understand oneself in thought behavior and actions. Through regular mediation, chakras healing and cleansing and diligent efforts to overcome mental and physical limitations we can experience ourselves better and even possibly heal other.

TEAPOT
(GRACE, SRIKANTH,MAHESH)

Amidst all the hard work the fun n frolic of life we need to take a moment to relax. What better way then to sit with a friend or someone you love for a hot cuppa tea or coffee in a quiet little corner far from the madding crowd.
This is from Grace. Coffee pot n cups with a serene backdrop. Why is it that people choose to drink coffee? The three top reasons are not really a surprise 1. To wake up 2. To warm up 3. When in need for an energy boost. Also it can be associated with things like a need for a relaxing moment to a need for refreshment. When i want a treat. When i need energy that lasts for some time. Also there are some just simple excuses like -i need a break during the day. I want something to pass the time or i need something refreshing. There are various ways coffee is served such as express double express, short macchiato, coffee latte, not forgetting cappuccino. Coffee is such an imp part of our daily lives this is the reason why i was attracted to choose this beautiful coffee set n its surrounding atmosphere. Although there are some latest innovations in super automatic coffee n express machine but nothing like the old fashion way sitting n pouring n creating your own coffee drink as soon as you start your day. I did have quite a lot of problems creating the set. Didn’t know how to handle passtillage. The weather also was an enemy in my progress. But my elder’s n teachers were always there to help me out. I sure am glad i got this opportunity it has helped me grow so much

DOLI

The Indian Doli/Palkhi or the Palanquin was used to transport the royals and the members of the warrior class in the olden days from one place to another. Many couples who want an opulent traditional wedding ceremony often endeavor to recreate such royal weddings held in the past. TheBidaai formally marks the end of the wedding celebrations of a traditional Indian wedding ceremony. Though many modern weddings end with a grand Reception held in the evening; the Doli or Vidaai (or Bidaai) is, in fact, the official departure of the bride from her parental home to her husband’s home.
A lot of importance is given in our society to mark the entrance of a bride And every bride wants it to b extra special .Here I have tried to showcase a bride decked in all her wedding finery, weddinglehenga and coming down from her doli ….I spent about three weeks to work on this piece.
