THOUGHTS INDULGED...

One day, I was messing around on Tumblr and found an interesting quote.  
"People are not against you; they are for themselves." 


Immediately I thought of that quote (I can't remember it exactly but this is the gist)
"Every hero is a villain in someone else's story.  Every villain is a hero in another story." 
I usually take things personally. I always have. I remember being a small child and my mother saying "You wear your heart on your sleeve."
I did not know what she meant so I was like, looking at my sleeve but couldn't find a heart.
I have been told my whole life that I need to grow thicker skin. I am just this way, Sensitive.  This is a blessing and a curse. 
A big pro is that I have great empathy for others. A HUGE con is that my feelings are often hurt by others who don't mean to. I am not saying everyone in the world is innocent and no one never tried to hurt me. I am not naive. I just know that sometimes that I take things the wrong way. If there is a positive way to take a message or a negative way, I am at fault for almost always taking it the negative way. As I have gotten older (and hopefully wiser) I have taken time to reflect on the supposed bad comment and try to put a positive spin on it. 
If I can honestly not find a positive spin then I know that I was right in the first place. Lately I have been feeling under attack in certain areas of my life. I need to realize that some people are not out to get me. They are just putting themselves and their needs first (which is something I am bad at).
People say, "If winter comes, can spring be far behind !!"
Wish I see this soon.

Upping Saree quotient with Unnati Silks

Looking back at the memory lane, most women I've seen and met have always donned and adored the 6 yards (sometimes 9) of elegance. Growing up in Indian household, I used to see how my mum used to wear a saree so fast and so perfect in a single go. I remember sneaking into my room with any of mum's saree, standing in front of mirror and trying to wear it and then fail miserably. 
Reminiscing those memories, I got to collaborate with Unnati Silks and here are the pictures of how childhood's random 'Saree wrapping' turned into modern day millennial 'Saree draping'.


Half Saree Love Ft. Vyas Vasthra

Hailing in Bangalore, for like 2 years now, I have started loving the place. Right from its culture, food, places and mostly traditional attires.
Since childhood, I've been fawning upon traditional outfits like sarees, lehenga, salwar kameez and what not! I shared a special love for saree but like you know, saree is not that easy to wear. 
Trying to find easy alternatives, I stumbled upon the very beautiful traditional attires from South India called Half Saree. Langaa Daavani in Karnataka, Langa Voni in Telugu, Pattu Paavadai in Tamil; this has been a trademark of how most girls in South India dress up.

PERSPECTIVE..!

One day, it began to dawn on me that somewhere in the middle, between not moving and moving too fast, there's a whole world of magical possibilities.
