Happy to be a part of the alphabet crazy challenge.

This is my contribution to Alibbs alphabet crazy  challenge

A is for Art.  Art is eternal.  It comes in countless forms whatever we choose to indulge in.  I chose sculpture.  This is a poor copy of Paolina Borghese as victorious Venus but I was not interested in what it represented.

We were holidaying in Italy and there on the road side vendors were selling these sculptures.  We were warned that we should bargain,  I also knew it was not pure marble but made from soft stone.  I bargained and got it for 50, 000 Liras  Those days it meant just Rs. 2500/-  I do not know the prevailing conversion rate.

I gifted it to my niece who was eyeing it after it stayed with me for years.

I have been writing for various sites some of which have disappeared.  I have several interests including writing, photography, gardening, reaching out, cooking.  I have a blog which needs a bit of revamping and when I get some time I will go there and do justice.

I love people and have been responsible for getting together several groups such as class mates, seniors, orphaned kids and family
