Polymer Clay Crystal Octopus

A family friend of mine recently gifted me a huge batch of crystals. (Thank you 🙂 ) I've been toying around with the idea of combining clay with minerals, glass and stones for a while now. But 11th grade has successfully killed all of those plans. Regardless, a couple weeks ago school was a little... Continue Reading →

Irrigo: A Smart Gardening Device

'Irrigo' stands for 'Irrigation on the Go'. Last year, as part of my summer project, our team created this device. Introduction Imagine this. You have a trip planned. All bags are packed. But what about your plants? It's the middle of summer - they will dry up. You could give your neighbours a set of... Continue Reading →

Trying Digital Art

I received an iPad for my birthday this year. The model I got was this one.(link here) It is by far the best piece of technology I own. When my parents and I were initially discussing getting an iPad, I was worried that it might not have much use. I didn't think that an iPad... Continue Reading →

Making a Claymation

Remember “Pingu” and “Shaun the Sheep”? Growing up, I loved these! Why I’m talking about them is because both these shows are claymations. Claymations are stopmotions made with clay. They have this 3 dimensional aspect to them that can’t be achieved through normal animation. ‘Shaun the Sheep’ Credit: awn.com‘Pingu’ Credit: Pingu.net I decided to make... Continue Reading →

2020 wrapped: Year in Review

I read this joke somewhere. 2020 was a unique year because it had 29 days in February, 53 Wednesdays, and 6 months in April. And if that isn't true I don't know what is. Especially the last few months, from August, passed in a blur. Where did the time go? I was just moping around... Continue Reading →

Why You should Craft and be Terrible at It

I was four when I made my first discernible clay piece. It was a gift for my parents' anniversary. My parents were so proud of me when I made it, though when I look back at it now I suspect that was out of nicety rather than appreciation.  It’s been ten years since then and... Continue Reading →

Why Exams should be held amid COVID-19

This was an op-ed I wrote for my writing community. I don't agree with this, but wanted to write it to see if I could make a persuasive point. The COVID-19 Pandemic has disrupted our lives. In recent times many debate whether or not exams should take place. For us to come out of this... Continue Reading →

Prof. Bernhard Pfahringer on Data Science and AI

Back in December, I took some interviews of professors and data science experts who came to a convention in Amity university. This was my first ever interview and it lasted well over 40 minutes. Kudos to the editor for condensing and prioritising huge blocks of text into this neat article. Here is a link to... Continue Reading →

Book Review: The Three Adventurers at Fungalore

'The Three Adventurers at Fungalore' is an awesome page-turner written by 9-year-old Kavya Kompella. Kavya has let her imagination run wild in the lockdown and produced a great work of art. This book is also illustrated by her. These illustrations are very cute and far better than anything I could ever draw. Moving on to... Continue Reading →

Trying Realistic Sculpting

Why are dragons easier to make than humans? I've made tons of dragons and mythical creatures such as these over the past two years.   But, I have never tried proper realistic sculpting. I wanted to try working in proportions and follow proper sculpting techniques so that the model looks like a real human. I... Continue Reading →
