a day like a gypsy......

i lead a nomadic life..you could say i am a modern day gypsy...so it was interesting when i had to don the role of a gypsy for a day...n more intersting was the facts that i learnt about gypsies....here are some of them

-the origin of gypsies was supposed to be from india
-the term gypsy is coined from the egyptian word Gyptians
-the gypsies migrated from europe to northern india in the 18th century
-they are a vagabound race with no permanant homes
-they make their living by their age old occupation of fortune telling which includes crystal ball reading,tea leaves reading,palmistry and fortune telling...
-some very famous personalities like Charlie Chaplin,Picasso and Elvis Presley were of gypsy origin...

there is more and more to the interesting gypsy factfiles...

playing a gypsy was fun and also kinda hardwork as you had to recreate a gypsy time-period in our party area...bt hard work paid ,n the party had bcom a gr8 hit...:)

below are some of the tarot cards i created for the gypsy fortune teller....

  3. You have excellent command over the language. Why can't you put it creatively.
    Read the selected short stories of either O Henry or Guy De Maupassant to perfect techniuqe of story telling.
    Take it seriously.
    One day you can be another Arundathi
    Roy one day.
    With best wishes.
