Lets be honest , Instagram is full of cute kids of all ages from all over the world. And then there is a special boy Neil who is not just super cute and but has a unique sense of style & wardrobe thanks to his designer mom. We had been stalking #raisingmonty for a while and then we decided to approach his uber talented mother Paulami Saha Arora to share his pictures.
Welcoming Neil , our youngest candidate for Walk into my Wardrobe :
On his first birthday Neil wore a waist coat, with kurta pajama from Fab India.
We asked Paulami how is to be an entrepreneur while also raising a small baby boy full time ? Here is what she had to say …” Managing a baby and a business has not been easy, but I was very lucky that the initial hard work (sourcing, finding connects etc) that is required, had already progressed before his arrival.I am very proud of the fact that I did not take a day off after my delivery and was remotely managing an ongoing exhibition at Dastkar.
Having staff with whom I am working over many years does help to manage it in my absence. Also the fact that the ladies who do my work are also multitasking with their households, makes us empathize and get attuned to each others requirements.
Moreover, baby wearing is such a boon and I am grateful to come across such baby carriers( She uses Soul ) that made my life easier as I took the baby almost everywhere, be it exhibitions, photoshoots etc. All of these find a space in my wardrobe.
It is ofcourse a bit limiting at times, and I do want to have my own focused workspace in near future but right now this is the best way I have found a balance.”
