Rebel, with a cause

There are so many amazing, virtuoso, brilliant people out there who are doing great in their respective fields. You can look at them and feel beneath, jealous, timid and lose your confidence OR take inspiration. It is so easy to give up, so easy to think you cannot do it, so easy to feel scared and worthless. But it takes plenty of cojones to stand for what you believe in, to keep doing something that you love and enjoy, to walk against the direction of the wind, to face opprobrium, and to continuously try to create an identity for yourself in this big world.

I have been a rebel and an obdurate kind of person and all these years the world tried to convince me that these are the kind of qualities I should get rid of. Over these years I started listing them under my bad qualities, right under laziness and above irresponsible. But lately, I realized that they actually deserve a respectable place in my strengths. I feel so stupid that I let the world make me believe that being rebellion and being stubborn made me a bad person.

Rebel; someone who does not obey, someone who rise in opposition.
Stubborn; someone who does not give up, difficult to move, dogged determination not to change.

You are wasting your life if you are not doing what you love, if you are not being who you are, if you are not chasing the dreams you have. You need to look for the light and then follow that path. Yeah, go ahead be a rebel, it takes fortitude to be one, to stand against the odds, to fly in the face of normalcy, to talk about things they don’t want to hear. And once you have found your art, my dear, be a stubborn heart. Deny to give up no matter how hard it gets, accept the criticism, the failures, the bruises and the pain. Work hard to keep that fire alive, that desire alive.

And most importantly, don’t apologize. Don’t apologize for your belief, for your grit, for your devotion, for being insanely frenzy about your art.
Yes, I am stubborn, yes I am a rebel, and I am proud of being one.
Who are you? or shall I ask are you happy with it?

Celebrate your Individuality

In a world where people are trying to become a bellwether, try to hold on to your own individuality.
In a world where people are trying to show you the ‘Right direction’, be brave enough to explore new roads.

Hello, Beautiful people!! 😃

How have you all been?? Hope you all had a smooth end to 2016 and an amazing start to the new year. We spent the last few days of 2016 and the first few days of 2017, in the mountains. So yes it goes without saying, we had the time of our lives and that explains why have we been MIA. Sorry for being inconsistent guys, but we are still learning and we are still growing.

This being the first post of 2017, we wanted it to be something different and something empowering. We have witnessed so many new trends and experiments in the fashion world lately. There are no boundaries and no rules when it comes to dressing up or dressing down. These days, it is a lot easier to create your own style statement and go as wild and as quirky as you want to, with your outfits. We love playing around with prints, colors, accessories and footwear but like everyone else, there were times when we held ourselves back thinking we might end up looking like a fashion disaster. Yeah, self-doubt is a universal problem. But, gone are the days when we thought twice before sporting a look and that is the message we want to send across to all of you with this particular post. Whether it is about mixing two different pieces of clothes, or clubbing casual and formal in a look, or picking a completely opposite footwear with an outfit, we are game for it all. It is safe to say, that mix matching is the new trend.

So we broke all the rules and created this post to show you two ways to style denim clothes. In the first one, we picked up a denim shirt and cut it into a crop top, draped a sari around it and wore floral sneakers. To add more fun to the outfit, we used colorful bindis creating an outline on the eyebrows. Who says you cannot wear sneakers with a sari or that you cannot wear a necklace with a collared shirt?

For the second look, we went a little casual and picked a Patiala/Afghani salwar, a black crop top and a pink denim jacket with the same floral sneakers. Two pigtail, high bun or even a top knot would look kick ass with this outfit. You can pick any kind of salwar or dhoti pants, a crop top/bralette, and a jacket. We have a wide range of options available in jackets these days. A leather jacket or a bomber jacket would add some edge to the look, while a blazer would add some formal touch.

Go as bold as you want to when it comes to experimenting with your outfits. Express yourself with the clothes and the makeup. You don’t need to follow the rules in order to look good. Remember, ‘Confidence does not come when they start believing in you, it comes when you believe in yourself.’

Another fun post will be up by Wednesday, so don’t forget to come back and have a look. We hope you all have a rocking year ahead with a lot of new opportunities and learnings and success. Sending you all oodles of love and loads of hugs 😀 Big, big thank you for being such an amazing support and taking out time to read our posts. You guys motivate us to keep working hard.

HER || SHE || WOMAN

I met a woman in the hills last year, Kind and gorgeous. She ran a small cafe and worked as a porn artist. Poured her heart out, over a cup of coffee on a winter morning. She chose to pose nude, not because how things stand, but because she enjoys that. It’s just a career choice, not her Dignity.

I saw a woman on the highway the other day, chit chatting with the truck drivers and exhaling smoke as she sipped her tea. The guys on the left giving her dirty smiles and the elders on the right looking down at her disrespectfully. It’s just a cigarette, not her identity.

There is a goth girl next door, who hangs out with a bunch of guys, gets drunk sometimes and stays out till 3. Not just the neighbors, her own family looked at her as an ignominy. It’s just an hour of the clock, not her personality.

That shy girl from my school, who fell in love with a guy from a different continent. She now shares a house with him. A human loving another human, regardless of society’s acceptability.

There is a woman I know, who was always forced to cover her body and even the face when she stepped out of her room. Years later saw her picture on a social media in sheer sari on a red bikini. She captioned ‘Hey!! It’s just a piece of cloth to cover, not a necessity’.

That woman who is always treated as untouchable every time she stepped in a Temple, Mosque or a church. She cried out one day, ‘what’s caste and creed?’ The society divided Gods in the name of religion, she dared to disagree.

There is a kick ass woman I know from work, smooth with excels and people. Loves sleeping in the jungles and waking up on mountain peaks. Often shows her indifference towards cooking and house cleaning activities. Not a good wife, they assigned the guilt when she asked her man to share the responsibilities.

A woman in my family, declared her wish for child-bearing. Her mother joyously inquired, ‘so you are ready for matrimony?’ She tried explaining, ‘A woman can choose motherhood, bridal vows are not obligatory’.

That woman who hides away from everybody like a crook. Raped in her teens, is now rejected by every male of our community. Her parents tired of defending, Somebody else’s monstrous act does not define her purity.

We live in a century where women travels to moon and other planets and here we are still judging her on the basis of the career she chooses for herself, the time she comes back home, the gender of her best friend, the number of guys she has dated, the age when she wants to marry, the inches of skin she chooses to reveal, her cooking and house cleaning skills, her decision of marriage and kids. Almost EVERYTHING.

Guide her if she is about to fall, and even if she does, sit down with her, laugh it off and help her get up. Don’t force her to follow the rules and the classification of right and wrong set by the society. You can’t always protect her, it’s not possible. Don’t expect grace and elegance out of women all the time. It’s UNFAIR. Tell them it’s okay to be goofy and messy and clumsy and that it’s okay to fall down trying to walk in those sky-high heels.

Give her the freedom to make her own choices, let her gather the courage to accept the mistakes and failures and the sagacity to learn the lessons life has to offer.

No this isn’t about feminism, this isn’t about being treated as equals, it is about accepting and loving HER, SHE, THE WOMAN OF THE SOCIETY. Whether she is slim or Fat, tall or short, has long hair or is completely bald, loves a male or a female, Sot or sober, fair or dark, coy or cocky, a housewife or ruthlessly ambitious. No matter who she is and how she chooses to lead her life, she is BEAUTIFUL and COMPLETE and she deserves to be treated with respect as much as she is expected to give respect.

She is ME,
She is YOU,
She is a Woman,
But first, a HUMAN.

Loads of Love,
