Welcome everyone to my 12th gallery/shop! It really has been a long and wonderful journey ever since my first shop till now! # 12 seems like a special number, I don't know why...but it just feels special! I honestly never thought I would make it this far...but its an overwhelming feeling really, to have made it all the way here. Feels like it was just a year or two back that I started making sigs, when it really has been more than 5 years or so lol.
I have learnt alot over the past few years, and in a place where copying and over inspiration is common nowadays...I've tried my best to keep my work and styling different from others =) Some people have tagged me as the 'Queen of Icons' because I have received alot of appreciation and admiration for the icons I make...and that seriously means the world! I believe I have improved with my vid avis as well, although I don't make them very often...unless I am very motivated or inspired :)
I'd also like to say that all the colourings you see in my work are pretty much my own. Whether you'd like to believe it or not, but I've never used tutorials or PSDs to learn or try colouring. All my colourings I've done till date have been purely experimental and random. So if they do end up looking similar to other people's colourings, its completely unintentional.

I've never actually listed all my favourites before in my shops...but I'd like to take the time to list them because most of my work will be seen on these people. They're all Indian Telly people, cause if I sat down and listed my Bolly and Holly favs...I would put people to sleep.

Sanaya Irani, Mayank&Nupur, Yuvi&Naina,Sameer&Avni, Karan Tacker, Maan&Geet, Drashti Dhami, Gurmeet Chaudhary, Gurmeet&Drashti,Abhay&Piya, Barun Sobti, Shravan&Saachi, Arnav&Khushi,Sanaya&Barun,Viraf&Shilpa, Mohan&Megha, Vivian Dsena,Siddharth&Pratyusha (AnSh),Siddharth Shukla, RK&Madhu,Anuj&Sanaya, Saras&Kumud, Gautam Rode.

I want to thank my commenters from the bottom of my heart who have encouraged me by loving, and commenting on my creations. It is because of you people, that I have come a long way and have been able to reach my 12th shop =)
In this particular shop, I would like to give out special mentions to some of my most special friends and commenters that have been with me and have given life to some of my galleries!
Ami, Surbhi, Javeria - They are probably some of my most oldest friends and loyal commenters on IF! They have been with me since the early days of my sigmaking...and have alwayss been so encouraging, supportive, and most of all...amazingg friends! Ami and I loved writing essays for one another, and we almost always loved the same pair or show! Surbhi and I shared a hugee love for KaSh, and she would always write me the most loveliest comments! Javeria and I also had a lot of favourite couples and shows in common, and we would always fangirl about them :) They are inactive on IF as far as I know, and I really really miss them! Aliya, Jenny, Anku - I'd like to name them as my KaSh girls because we all have gone through our obssessive KaSh fangirl stages. We also have another pair in common that us 4 love, and that is SaRun :) These three girls are extreme sweethearts <3 Aliya and Jens (as I lovingly call her ) are girls I have known and have been friends with for a long long time. Aliya and Jens, have been with me since my early days of sigmaking. Jens ofcourse is one of my most top and early inspirations when I first started off sigmaking. I don't know whether she knows this or not, but when I first entered the world of DMG...it is her work that I saw first on KaSh, and from that moment I saw her work...I wished I could have known how to make sigs like her! She is a lovely human being, a fantastic sigmaker and a wonderful friend...and I know she is always there for me no matter what :) Anku and Aliya ofcourse are somewhat choosy and selective about things they love (and I mean this in a good way!) but somehow they like alot of the stuff I make. They usually have soft spot for anything made on KaSh or SaRun and I know they always will...but I know for a fact they love my work regardless of who I make stuff on. Aishhh & Ashu - My spammer chicks! I just adoree them a little too much, and when all 3 of us are in one gallery 'talking'...then you can expect some crazy momentss! We admire each other's creative work alot, and we hold each other's back :) We are like the 3 muskateers! :D Ashu and Aish also happen to be some of my favourite inspirations in sigmaking, and they are just superb at whatever they do! I love you two girls alottt <333 These days Ashu and Aish are pretty inactive and I really really miss these girls alottt! Farzu,Phatty,Jyotika & Aanya - My KaJen girls! Even though I'm a big KaSh fan, I never have let that get in the way of being friends with these three super sweet girls! I believe Farzu and I met during Geet days...not sure if I'm wrong or not, but I'm pretty sure our friendship started from there lol. Not only do I love her cause we get along really well, but also cause she's a fellow Canadian girl like me :) Phatty, I met through my gallery and we share a huge love for Arjun Rampal! She's pretty inactive now. Jyotika, I have met during IPK days and although she is inactive now...we have some memorable moments where we've fangirled over ArHi/SaRun. Same thing with Aanya, thanks to SaRun...we also became friends during IPK days :) But she is pretty inactive now.
Madhura & Nish - They are my most recent addition as regular commenters and as such awesome friends! Madhura and I met, I believe during PKYEK days...and we shared our love for Abhay & Piya. We click cause we are both random girls, and we scrap each other back and forth randomly. We can be chatty, weird, random, sensitive...all in one go! But we have a great time interacting whenever we can :) She is sweet, but above all...very genuine and honest! Nish is a total sweetheart, and I feel we connect so well with one another. We are very fond of each other...and I love it whenever she writes me one of her long and lovely essays!
I apologize if I have forgotten to mention someone...but I believe I have mentioned all my close people I have met throughout the years in my gallery :)
Hope all of you enjoy my creations and please feel free to comment/criticize my work.

- I will prefer to take requests that involve Indian TV Soaps
- - [I only take fictional telly shows, so NO religious mythos or reality shows please!] - -
- I can also take Bollywood requests as well.
- I do not take Hollywood requests.
- - [The only exceptions are Twilight/Harry Potter/Vampire Diaries] - -
- If you request, please do use it for more than one day! (Even if you don't happen to like your request) I work hard on making them, so it disappoints me when people don't use their requests.
- If you have NEVER or BARELY commented in my gallery or shop, then I suggest you become a regular or occasional commenter first and then think about requesting here. I find it highly unfair for my other regular commenters if random people I've never met or barely know, come to request.
