Free-style sketching is more natural than drawing a sketch using mouse and palette based tool. A number of sketching systems have been developed but not much attention is paid towards friendliness of the system. We present here an efficient Sketching system MAHII for sketching the strokes from multiple domains. The proposed paper demonstrates how a sketching system can be made user friendly and user interactive too. We also present the architecture of our system that solves many flaws encountered in the previously built systems. The interface should be such that it minimizes the gap between a human being and a machine. Our system provides a robust architecture that proves to be efficient. It also allows the user to sketch the diagram freely. And at the same time it edits the sketches as well as recognizes the sketches efficiently. This paper represents more robust and natural environment to the user. The MAHII provides the user an interface that is built in accordance with a novice user. MAHII provides free style sketching, recognizes the sketch produced by the user with accurate results.
