Winter is coming!

OK, this isn’t about your favourite episode of Game of thrones. But for real, the winter season is about to start, and August is the mark of the beginning of the cold season. I know a lot of you are going to say what’s wrong with this girl? Winter is December, January, and Feb. So for all of you who don’t live in Bangalore (FYI we get 3 months of scorching summer) it’s just freezing cold especially when it rains. Winter is the best time of the year to play dress up and the best of styles to come out. The best-tailored outfits, multiple layers, warm shoes and all the accessories to dress up the clothes.

So just before all the warm layer of clothes start coming out of my closet would like to indulge in a strong summer outfit. Don’t worry the layering is on it way. But I have to say, every time I look at the necklace It makes me feel like a strong and mighty queen, maybe even a bit evil. Like Jadis, the white Witch, Cersei Lannister, at times even Abaddon (of course she never had a crown 😉 but evil enough I guess)

The great and mighty August is here, Let’s start preparing for winter.

Sometimes I really wish I could be Bob Marley and not give a F*** about anything.

 

But then I was born a girl and that ruined it for me.

I do love the peace and quiet that lets me hear the songs nature sings to us every day. Can anyone tell me how do we bring back the sparrows into the city? My dad always says while growing up my best friends were ants (because I always played with them instead of doing my homework ❤ ), God knows I will be punished on judgement day for troubling them! And for persistently chasing cats too 😉 God created all kinds of creatures big and small, He also made humans the god’s of the earth, yet we are so willfully destroying it! ❤ Yup you might have guessed it right! I’m a big sucker for the organics grown naturally from the earth. I love the softness of cotton and the flavors of organically grown foods. It is a rare occasion on which I have fallen in love with an outfit without checking it’s fabric composition.

I love to ❤ with all my heart, and find ‘hate’ a non-existent emotional state!!! Who am I kidding I do have a list of people I want dead, but I don’t find it worth the wasted effort to destroy them and make the world an unhappy place to live in! I know I wish i were a hippie but hippie’s reject evolution,and I am a sucker for technology too!

Visiting grandpa’s house was a nightmare daylight! Growing up in the city in small spaces was very different from my grandpa’s house. It is a house in the middle of  farmlands, where house pets were two monstrous dogs always too eager to pounce on visitors and notorious cats who would never come near you. As a small kid, I was petrified! Always smaller and more timider than the creatures around me. Even the insects in the village home seemed larger than life! and mom always wondered why I cried every time we visited my grandparents.
However over time, some things change. Like I outgrew the dogs in size. although, the dogs that were brought home in the years to come were much smaller. I ran faster and caught the cat, although they were more than happy to swoop their soft paws and spring the razor sharp claws at me. and I could even visit the cows in the shed unsupervised (it’s always too dark in there) A true sense of admiration and understanding for the creatures around me sets in with time and age.

My logical brain tells me “art in itself has never achieved anything productive”. Yet the only form of art that has proved that statement wrong for me was the glorious era of pop art. All thanks to the creative advertising it generated. I wouldn’t and couldn’t care much to debate about anything about the art itself because as an average person I do not understand the many facets of art that make it so important. What I do know however is no art is good enough unless it triggers an emotion and pop art has always been a trigger in my head. Bright colours, bold outlines, almost life like yet so half way humorous about the things of everyday life.

Pigeons don’t like marron!

At my first job, I had to park my beautiful marron 800 in the open parking space next to the building wall where the pigeons nested. It was annoying how often they found a way to consistently dishevel only my car! C’mon, there were atleast eight other cars to shit on. Apparently they liked to shit only on the maroon cars. But no! I didn’t dress up in the maroon block print dhoti pants to test my theory, however, I did notice the pigeons would run away at the sight of me. Is it in my head? I highly doubt that! Pigeons are strangely hungry creatures. When they are eating they don’t care so much anyone’s invasion of privacy into their space.

Cubbon park has always been a strange place to me. Major part of all my school summers has been in and out of the Bal bavan. Yet the park was like a real life Narnia to my tiny mind, the grandfather trees with the gigantor government buildings. I still don’t think I’ve truly seen even half the park. Until this day out at the park, I didn’t even know there was a designated space for the band of the parks own pigeons.

I wasn’t really Indian. Being a Christian in India was like being the unwanted child left behind by our forefathers who were unwanted settlers. Of course, a lot of things of the past have lost their importance over the years. Also being named Nita made it difficult for the average Indian to even believe I was Christian. I used to hate wearing Indian wear, primarily because during every national event and holiday I never had a proper outfit to wear to school. Until of course I discovered the saree, something I adapted pretty quickly too. But kurta’s was a “never want to wear” feeling.

However, those feelings fade growing up. It doesn’t really matter because I was never expected to wear Indian ethnic to any of the major events. What really happened was, I discovered a new love for Indian wear when I worked for Fabindia for two years. The best challenge at the job was the ability to mix and match the available products to create a full outfit. Kurtha, pajama, and dupatta too with the value adding accessories. I find summer the best time to pick out my kurtas to wear, also the best season to wear the vibrant Indian` colours.

I was hoping to create an all Fabindia products in the ensemble, but I guess I haven’t worked there long enough to acquire those many products. My Verdict: Kurta’s are a favourite outfit for the summers. Also, the beauty of a kurta can be magnified or destroyed by the way the dupatta is draped. Show her some love and be fully aware that she will make or break the outfit you choose to wear.

Distance makes the heart grow fonder, so when your almost American brother is visiting India invites the whole world home, it becomes the awesome excuse for us to host a cousin’s meet up. All the more awesomely perfect is when the cousins agree to meet up for breakfast! On a Sunday! But as a typical Indian agreement of sorts, both parties do not keep their end of the bargain, my brother called them all too early and my cousins turn up too late for breakfast.

so what’s the best option for an outfit when you are the host, technically my mom is but I am her personal assistant 😉 at home, you need something light, won’t hinder ur movement while attending,  and still look like I’m at home and comfortable. what a perfect excuse to wear my yellow dress. The cotton makes it light and breezy, The small red flowers makes it pretty and pleasant, and the yellow makes it a bright and happy.
