A humble world does exist!

In the midst of all the artificial life that has overwhelmed Bangalore in the past decade, I love to see that there are pockets of areas all over the city that accommodate simple living, the old fashioned way.

The weathered cart seen in this picture is loaded with greens and herbs. My sister and I picked up a few bunches of greens from this keerai (greens)  lady, who was kind enough to let me take a picture of her and her cart. Keerai in tamil (a South Indian language) means greens.

Nestled among residential areas, there are side streets with vendors selling fresh veggies and fruits from make-shift stalls, or carts. Some just set out the produce on mats on the footpath (sidewalk) and do their business. Just taking a stroll in the cool of the evening and picking up fresh produce gives me a nice feeling as there is no air of pretense here. People from different walks of life, rich, middle- class, and the poor, shop there shoulder to shoulder sometimes. No shopping carts, no branded stuff, no credit cards and all the likes are seen here. Don’t get me wrong, I do love the convenience of using all these but still deep in my heart, I love the simple, old-fashioned lifestyle!

About anointedartist

I am a free-spirited person who enjoys the little things in life as much as the big ones that cross my path. As wife and mother of two wonderful kids, I have learned to take into stride the joys and pains of nurturing my family with laughter and tears. From being a stay-at-home mom for a long time, I have now extended my arms into the community to envelope kids with special needs and work with them. My soul takes delight in creating pieces of art in the form of pottery, card-making, crafting, knitting, crocheting, and list goes on. My long-standing wish to learn pottery-making took form and I have made quite a few interesting projects and love them. I also do prophetic arts (painting) along with my husband at our church during worship now and then and enjoy it. I believe that most of my inspirations come for my Creator and I am just being instrumental in revealing it to others. I feel honored to be used as His anointed vessel to display the creativity He has invested in me.
