    Lockdown Celebrations

    Merry Christmas everyone. So, yes Christmas is here already, and even this Covid year is about to get over (I hope). Actually, I never celebrated the authentic Christmas because A: I am a Maharashtrian and B: I have zero Christian friends, not that only Christians celebrate Christmas but you know what I mean right? For me the most amazing Christmas celebration used to be while I was in school, our school used to organize these skits, carols, and every Christmassy thing that you can possibly imagine. As kids, we used to be so excited for these small celebrations or mostly for the vacations, and then we grew up and all…

    Let’s Recap

    So, the year 2020 is about getting over, and what a roller coaster ride it has been. This lockdown had a huge impact on all of our lives and I guess we won’t be able to forget it for the rest of our lives. But we have to accept that no matter how much we have condemned this year we enjoyed it more than anything, of course, not the pandemic part (that was sad and unfortunate) but the vacation part of it. For most of us, it was a time off from our so-called busy schedule, a 10 months long holiday if you will or a ride into self-introspection or…

    Keep it Casual !

    Casual wear is a rescue for lazy ass people like me who do not want to come out of their comfortable pajamas yet wanna look put together and for those who do not want to look overdressed but stylish at the same time. Casuals have been at the top of the fashion game for a while now, being the most worn and shopped clothes, their versatility is remarkable. Think of the times when you stood still in front of your wardrobe staring at the mound of clothes trying to figure out “What to wear?” and finally landed on a decision, jeans and a t-shirt. Casuals are the easiest handy pieces…

    Do you feel the same?

    Have you ever thought of where life is taking you? What is happening? Why am I growing up so soon? I don’t want to grow up, I don’t want these, bigass responsibilities and complications. See, the thing is that we are living in a crazy world where anything can motivate you, but at the same time anything and everything can make you cry and make you feel worthless. Are all these disadvantages of growing up? When I was in school, I used to be fascinated by the world, the elder people, growing up and being an adult is the only dream of every small kid, including me and you too.…

    The Sattika

    So starting with the meaning of “Sattika”. It is described as a women’s attire in ancient India in Sanskrit literature and Buddhist literature called Jataka, okay let’s get it straight it means a saree. So, every girl has a story or a memory related to saree, I remember as a small girl I used to drape a dupatta all around as a saree and I don’t know if it is weird that used to make me feel grown-up. Indian traditional wear or ethnic wear always used to fascinate me a lot so one day I just thought of digging deep into it and to my surprise I found that “the…

    The Law of Attraction and positive thinking

    We all are told by our elders that you should always think positively or say good things only, etc. Whenever I was told this I used to think that why is it so? So the problem with us, the millennials is that we need scientific reasons for whatever our mom and grandmom (parents obviously but specifically moms and grandmoms because they are always ready with some sort of explanation or saying about everything) tell us because we need to show that we are all scientists and we believe only in facts and proven theories. Just randomly I came across the book ‘The Secret’ and I started reading it. I knew…

    qu’est-ce que la mode?

    Fashion is the expression of individuality, time, or a place in the form of clothing, accessories, footwear, makeup the overall way you present yourself. The idea of fashion is something that differs from person to person. For a very long time, my definition of fashion was something which popular people or celebrities would wear in terms of clothing and the trends they set or follow. But it was only after I went to college I understood NO! that is not how it is. It took me a lot of time to understand what suits me, what looks good on me. And more importantly, there’s a large difference between what I…

    Let’s talk about our favorite: social media

    Aren’t we lucky to have resources like the internet and social media? We can explore or search whatever we need in a click and that is what makes most of our work easy. We are dependent on the internet so much that whenever we want to know about something we reach out to our phones or laptops and here we are with an answer in just a click, so in this development of technology reading books for information, listening to elders and their stories, waiting for the broadcast on radio or television all of these things are just gone and I kind of miss all this. In this lockdown somehow…

    The Break we all Needed

    With the whole world going through a tough time, the growing coronavirus, the falling economy, the number of people losing their lives, and the constant fear of getting infected with the virus it’s all a mess for everyone. In march everything was normal, everyone was as busy as ever. I was at my college. Suddenly we got a notice from the director that we are closing the college because of the ongoing coronavirus. I don’t know about everyone else in the college but I was super happy I needed a break and trust me going home and good food is what we crave for in the hostel. Then the lockdown…
