“The Last Dance of the Courtesan” by Tarun Tahiliani at #ICW2016

Garlands of love

Fragrance of love

Lights & flowers embedded

Candles & glass chandeliers stirring the soul,

Making a magical rush in the bloodstream

Which connects to the heartstream

And the centerstage you hold

Orange & yellow pearls

Like a long wedding dream

You become alive

With the magical angel of love in pink

Dancing & moving her hands with all her charm

The lady luck all in peaches and roses

Tarun Tahiliani closed Day 2 of India Couture Week with his collection entitled “The Last Dance of the Courtesan”- a tribute and acknowledgement to the highest bastions of culture, poetry, dance & finesse. Continue Reading


The Bridal Diet (Book Review)

The Bridal Diet is a book to grab irrespective of the fact if you are getting married or not, published by Random House India & written by Nishi Grover. It made me feel nostalgic and took me to the time when I got married and tried shedding those extra kilos. I still don’t know if my strategy was right or wrong but yes, what I learnt from the book was quite exciting. Firstly I would like to confess that after reading this book I quite admire the author as I read her life story. She was detected Type I diabetes when she was 4 and any kid her age would have been disheartened to not being able to enjoy the candies as her friends used to do. She overcame this and became a top dietician. Kudos to her!! The book effectively encapsulates the intricacies involved in weddings these days and what the bride goes through. Every girl wants to look perfect on her D-Day and involves herself in a series of weight loss experiments without thinking of the ill effects. Not only does the book gives you the perfect diet plan according to your goal but even series of exercises for different problem areas – from flabby arms to tummy, butts and legs.

Opening show by Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla at BMW India Bridal Fashion Week

The BMW India Bridal Fashion Week kicked off with the opening show by Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla. So let’s begin with Sonam’s grand entry in a black & golden mesmerizing dress. It’s the body language or the face that we read & the song played in the background being “Will you still love me when I am no longer young & beautiful”. The diva was wearing a black multi panelled net flared gown detailed in gold & mirror with three dimensional lotuses embellished with swarovski crystals.  Sonam’s lovely attire, the way she sashayed in heels was commendable. I could spot Mrs. Jaya Bachchan, Shweta Nanda Bachchan, Dimple Kapadia (looking graceful as ever) & Rinke Khanna sitting in the front row. The collection paid homage to Varanasi. Continue Reading
