Resident Husain

Ads has become art-crazy of late. He spends a lot of time in school drawing, judging by the artwork that overflows his cubby everyday. Pencils and crayons on paper are the medium of choice. Every drawing carries a story. He has also been tracing shapes on paper - circles, squares, rectangles, hexagons and so on. The upshot of all this concentrated effort is that now he is able to render the drawing of a car, complete with wheels and all, very creditably. A wholly unexpected and pleasant side-effect of this new-found hobby is that he can frequently amuse and absorb himself for 20 to 30 minutes at a time. I'm thrilled to note how creative he can be, and it's nice that he loves reading and art - two of my passions. I can already tell that he is musically-inclined too, but that runs in the family so it's hardly surprising.
