Let’s not beat around the bush and put it right at the start – Aalok and I don’t believe that Denim is a trend.

If I am ever reported missing, the first place the authorities and my parents should rush to is Paharganj. I will most probably be found in a dingy cafe with good Wi-Fi, sipping Cold Coffee and hogging on a good form of potatoes.

I have bought and experienced everything that the place has to offer- bags, jewelry, decor goods, shoes, and food.
