Happy Birthday ArtMan

Happy Birthday ArtMan… We may not be the first ones to wish but indeed will be the last ones….

The man with brush guns and colours as bullets, a grenade of 3D drawings and indeed the Armor of graphics….

The man with finest sketches, the man with perfect strokes, the artist we love, the ArtMan we know…

The Pocket Diaries wishes you happiest birthday…


______ Children’s Day


On this felicitous Children’s Day, other than cheering you a wish, I place forth you a humble request, rather a plea to free the chained child in you.

The child tied up in chains of misery, locked in the name of one’s ostensible social image and crumbled under the workload.

The child, who’s morsels still try to escape through your dry tear glands, the child who’s laugh still haunts those deaf ears of yours.

The child you forgot exists.… a while ago, the child you forgot still breathes…. a while ago and indeed revive the one many killed…. a while ago.

Please unshackle that child still wandering in your hollow soul, please unchain that child still craving his lost home.
