A very Happy Diwali and a Prosperous New Year to all of you.
It is that time of the year wherein the whole country is lit up by the colourful lights and diyas. The time where the just these lights and diyas are enough to overcome the darkness that surrounds us. It is the winning of good over evil along with the whole festive celebration. Well this time I have been very lazy. I just moved back to Bombay from Delhi on 26th and damn Delhi was already flashing with lights all over. The streets were jam packed with sweets corner, crackers shops, and gift shops. The lanes were decorated with thousands of colourful lights. People were purchasing gifts in bulk. Being a Mumbaikar I’ve come to realise that we are a bit low on the whole idea of celebrating this festival compared to Delhites. Sorry Aamchi Mumbai for this comment but it really is a seen fact. Damn. However I am cent percent sure that we are not far behind as well, our lanes are lit up too and it is a full on festive mode.
Since the time I’ve come back home all I want to do is eat sleep and repeat. Having home cooked food is something that I had really missed in these couple of months of my stay in Delhi. Back in Delhi I was only surviving on Blue Lays my favourite and outside food. Which leads me to this blog post shoot I did in Ugrasen ki Baoli, we were late as usual and then we got kicked out of that place because we did not have permission to shoot there. Oops moment. So we shot outside that place and damn it was fun. However after a while I gave in because I was very hungry and the shoot also turned out great.
I focus more on the simplicity or rather less dramatic or less heavy outfits when it comes to my clothing. My mom had bought me this outfit last year from Avaasa Brand (Reliance Trends). I loved it and made it my “IT” outfit for this Diwali. It is simple and elegant and easy to carry. It is a beautiful black and white printed skirt and kurta with a multicoloured lining on the edges. To complete the whole look I wore a red bindi, golden loops cum jhumka and red tinted lips to give it that edge. In order to give this whole Indian outfit a modern and western touch I wore black and gold shades and multicoloured shoes.
Have a great and safe Diwali. This Diwali try doing something new and different. Spread smiles and happiness around. Try not to harm yourselves while bursting crackers. Happy Diwali everyone. I love you all very much. May this auspicious day brings a lot of happiness and prosperity in your lives. Stay blessed always and keep smiling. Please leave your views and comments below. Thank you.
