Feet don't fail me now, take me to the finish line.

To say that the past 6 months have been anything short of a crazy emotional roller coaster ride, would be an under-statement of epic proportions. The inability to update my blog more frequently has been the least of my worries. I started off the year with a much coveted internship with one of Indian fashion's pioneers, Ashish Soni(of Ashish N Soni). As luck would have it, I joint at a time, when he was neck deep in preparations for his twentieth year celebrations- a retrospective exhibit at the Aman hotel, New Delhi, that concluded in February. Along the way, I met lots of interesting and wonderful people and learnt a thing or two about life. March brought about the onset of a series of life altering events that left me without a parent and a whole lot wiser, stronger and well acquainted with the ways of the world. Life as I knew it came to a screeching halt, but in many ways also gave me the courage to step up to the plate and face things with a fresh perspective, one that has made me realise the importance of living in the "now". Along the way, birthdays, lazy sunday brunches and trips to sleepy little towns kept me distracted. Below, is a visual timeline of the same. Time and experience has made me realise that staying true to myself and what I stand for, is the only thing worth fighting for. It's funny how with time, you don't feel the need to match up to a certain ideal of perfection, and become more at ease with letting people in on the person that you actually are, flaws and all included. So from now on, that is exactly what I am going to strive to do by way of this blog, let you in on who I am as a person, post by post. For mine, might not be the 'best' blog, but it is most certainly an honest one.

A fun little cocktail workshop held by my friend, and author Gitanjali Chaturvedi, as a prelude to a book she's co-written. To learn more, go 'like' her facebook page.

I don't claim to be the most proficient when it comes to connecting with people through social media. But if you still wish to reach out to me on either of these platforms, you can do so here, and here.
