Painting, Movies, Life itself in general
Seshadri is an engineer by profession. He holds a degree in electrical engineering and is also a Fellow of the Institution of Engineers in India. He lives in Mumbai, India and is an independent consultant in the marketing of industrial products.
This background might seem entirely unconnected with the world of art, but for decades Seshadri has been wielding the brushes as a hobby. Although he is an entirely self-taught artist ,he has held a few one-man shows to his credit and been part of regional group exhibitions in Bombay, Bangalore, and Delhi in the 70's and 80's. In the new Millennium he has had private shows in New York and San Francisco in the years 2006 and 2008.
Caught up in the rat race, however, he had little time to devote to my canvasses and virtually gave up painting. But the new millennium brought with it a new phase of creativity, and he has again finding himself painting and capturing the evanescent moments of life.

Mikhail Gorbachev was invited to the US by President Reagan.
At the press conference at the airport in NYC, he was asked by a journalist,
"Mr. Gorbachev, if in 1963 Nikita Kruschev had been assassinated instead of John Kennedy, how would history have changed?"
Mr. Gorbachev thought for a second and replied, "I don't think Onassis would have married Mrs. Kruschev."

1) An eagle was sitting on a tree resting, doing nothing.
A small rabbit saw the eagle and asked him, 'Can I also sit like you and do nothing?'
The eagle answered: 'Sure, why not.'
So, the rabbit sat on the ground below the eagle and rested. All
of a sudden, a fox appeared, jumped on the rabbit and ate it. < U>
Moral of the story:
To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very, very high up.

While he was lying there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on him.
As the frozen bird lay there in the pile of cow dung, he began to realize how warm he was.
The dung was actually thawing him out!
He lay there all warm and happy, and soon began to sing for joy.
A passing cat heard the bird singing and came to investigate.
Following the sound, the cat discovered the bird under the pile of cow dung, and promptly dug him out and ate him.

Timeless Love! finished first in the member created contest "Time - Art".
A BIG Thank Q to all my fellow artists for your unstinted support and encouragement. This is an honour and a proud moment for me.
We use the arts to let go, to express, and to release. Also, we gain insight by studying the symbolic and metaphoric messages. Our art speaks back to us if we take the time to let those messages in.
Let's keep the creativity flowing!

Barbara Walters, of 20/20, did a story on gender roles in Kabul, Afghanistan, several years before the Afghan conflict.
She noted that women customarily walked five paces behind their husbands.
She recently returned to Kabul and observed that women still walk behind their husbands.
Despite the overthrow of the oppressive Taliban regime, the women now seem happy to maintain the old custom.
Ms Walters approached one of the Afghani women and asked,
'Why do you now seem happy with an old custom that you once tried so desperately to change?'
The woman looked Ms Walters straight in the eyes, and without hesitation said,
The moral of this story is (as it always was):
BEHIND EVERY MAN, THERE'S A SMART WOMAN!

DON'T YOU JUST LOVE LAWYERS?
A Mafia Godfather finds out that his bookkeeper has cheated him out of ten
million bucks. His bookkeeper is deaf. That was the reason he got the job in the first place. It was assumed that a deaf bookkeeper would not hear anything that he might have to testify about in court.
When the Godfather goes to confront the bookkeeper about his missing $10
million, he brings along his attorney, who knows sign language. The Godfather tells the lawyer, "Ask him where the 10 million bucks he embezzled from me is."
The attorney, using sign language, asks the bookkeeper where the money is.
The bookkeeper signs back: "I don't know what you are talking about." The attorney tells the Godfather: "He says he doesn't know what you're talking about."
The Godfather pulls out a pistol, puts it to the bookkeeper's temple and says, "Ask him again!" The attorney signs to the bookkeeper: "He'll kill you if you don't tell him!" The bookkeeper signs back: "OK! You win! The
money is in a brown briefcase, buried behind the shed in my cousin Enzo's backyard in Queens !"
The Godfather asks the attorney: "Well, what'd he say?"
The attorney replies: "He says you don't have the guts to pull the trigger."

40 years of marriage...
A married couple in their early 60s was celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary in a quiet, romantic little restaurant.
Suddenly, a tiny yet beautiful fairy appeared on their table. She said, 'For being such an exemplary married couple and for being loving to each other for all this time, I will grant you each a wish.'
The wife answered, 'Oh, I want to travel around the world with my darling husband
The fairy waved her magic wand and - poof! - two tickets for the Queen Mary II appeared in her hands.
The husband thought for a moment: 'Well, this is all very romantic, but an opportunity like this will never come again. I'm sorry my love, but my wish is to have a wife 30 years younger than me.
The wife, and the fairy, were deeply disappointed, but a wish is a wish.
So the fairy waved her magic wand and poof!...the husband became 92 years old.
The moral of this story: Men who are ungrateful should remember fairies are female.....

A driver was stuck in a traffic jam on the highway outside New Delhi. Nothing was moving. Suddenly, a man knocks on the window.
The driver rolls down the window and asks, "What's going on?"
"Terrorists have kidnapped the entire Parliament, and they're asking for a $100 million ransom. Otherwise, they are going to douse them all in petrol and set them on fire. We are going from car to car, collecting donations."
"How much is everyone giving on average?" the driver asks.
The man replies, "Roughly a gallon!."

My watercolour landscape 'Sundown Time' posted today was selected to participate in an on-line competition organized by a US based on-line gallery Tallenge.com. This came out of the blue! A very pleasant surprise indeed! However, I need to go through the voting route to qualify for the final round.
I would very much appreciate if you could take a few seconds and click on the link http://tlng.me/1dylCgc#sthash.EFTFPbXy.dpuf which will take you to the voting booth. Then just click on my entry pitted against an opponent which is randomly chosen by the computer. All this takes less than 30 secs.
Thanks very much for your time and cooperation.
September 10 at 12:28AM
Life is but a dream. : I did it Sesha, you got my vote. I also liked that Russian girl's work but yours rocked. Let us know how you did. By the way Sundown Time really looked well presented on that site.
September 10 at 2:09AM
seshadri_sreenivasan : Sundown time is a watercolour painting. The gallery chose it from my website and wrote to me to post it in their contest site! I did this on cold-pressed 300gms.m2 paper 11"x15". I am very glad you liked it.Thanks a lot for your support!
I thank all the members for their unstinted cooperation.
