What follows are pictures taken by cell phone. So please excuse the quality of the images. But there is no way I could have missed featuring Revady for our Walk into my Wardrobe section. She is chick, smart , intelligent and totally rocks her desi Indian looks. ( blue cotton anarkali suit with tree block prints) Revady says ” I love anything and everything fashion-related and love creating my own style.I love to motivate people…

First the music as requested by the Chhapa founders :) Ahmedabad in many respects is a city in contrasts and contradictions. The spectacular architectural heritage set in the old quarters of the city where even today merchants and skilled craft persons live in quaint houses with carved wooden entrances that are characteristic of the pols the quarters located in the winding lanes and alleys interspersed with chowks . On the other hand the new city…

This is something new on the blog. I have never covered a house which is based on Green Architecture . Its Indian , its beautiful , its breathtaking, its natural and ecofriendly  in so many ways. It is based on the 5R concept – Refuse, Reuse, Reduce, Recycle and Respect. Perhaps we use the same concepts to lead our lives too ? All these five elements come across beautifully in Vinay and Shrutali’s beautiful home.…

First the music . Thanks Chaitanya for letting me choose something of my choice. Hope you guys like it. ‘Paaduks’ is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘Paadukas’ which is the name of India’s oldest, most quintessential footwear. ‘Paada’ means foot in Sanskrit and ‘Paaduks’ essentially means footwear.

My husband and I moved here 2 years back and are loving the city! My love for aesthetics is largely inherited. My parents’ appreciation for…

I have lived in Pune for a few  years and this post is an ode to the proud Marathas who are fiercely loyal and proud of their rich cultural heritage. What follows is probably just the tip of the iceberg and I will be writing more from this part of the country in many more posts to come. But first the music suggested by Karan also from my favorite movie in recent times. Karan Raskar…

Kanishk let me choose the song and I think this will be perfect. Kanishk is from a  Haryanvi family which has been based in Gurgaon for over a century hence the name                HAR. YARN.V. I also met him at a recent Summer Mela in Dastkaar in Delhi and finally got to see all his beautiful clothes in person. I love his passion for Indian textiles, design and also how he working with Indian handloom and…

I have featured a few artists previously on the blog. Going forward , this will be a regular feature as a part of ” Meet the artist “. I love Bipasha’s thoughts behind each piece of her art. It shows that each stroke comes with a strong mind and a very gentle heart… “I’m an artist” doesn’t seem to roll off the tongue easily and yet it’s critical to be able to say it with confidence.…
