Girl Guide: Wearing a Saree and inside scoop on Pujo

Street Style Delhi: Indian Street Fashion
Art+Culture: Festive

My only affiliation with the Bengali side of India is a friend who made me hate fish curry a little less. But that doesn’t mean that I haven’t been a silent admirer of the ways and particularly of the Pujo time. When I threw this idea on the table (not figuratively) of doing a story around it, Aalok retorted with his usual cross questioning – do you think you know enough? did you research? don’t culturally appropriate?- “K, cool.”

Jewels and Junk, from Paharganj

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 even lived in this part of the city for more than two years With these credentials, I confidently call myself an expert of Paharganj. I have bought and experienced everything that the place has to offer- bags, jewelry, decor goods, shoes, and food.

Wristwood and the Olden days

I loved how he was; a perfect blend of everything old and new. And that is how he made me too. In two years of being with him, I had become a mirror image of him. I preferred eggs scrambled over boiled, tea over coffee, Xbox over brunches and late nights over my beauty sleep. I didn’t mind those conversations about cricket; in fact I had started liking them.
