Me from inside when someone says let's take a picture.🙈😟 .

This one is from our holiday in Mcleodganj at our hotel's glasshouse cafe. This was my impromptu response when we had nothing much to do until our breakfast arrived and my better half decided to click me in my sleepy face and PJs.

I know this is not an insta friendly photo but pardon my lack of skills in dishing out a perfect pose at the drop of a hat. I think I have long given up on that. I still went ahead with posting this is because of this saree and my encounters with saree in general.

The sad part of living in metro and away from the Dhoom dham of family functions & random relative invites is that I rarely get a chance to wear a saree. Not to mention the challenges of an amateur saree draper.

This particular saree was part of my wedding trousseau which my mom had been collecting since time immemorial and the collection is still ever growing. Since my teenager or early part of the 20s, I have seen here picking sarees for me from every state we visited.

This particular one is from Tamilnadu. I recently got an opportunity to wear it for the second time when we were invited for Sadhya, a traditional Malayali sit-down lunch. The attire was traditional and while I could have easily got away with the good Indian salwar kameez, I decided to take the Herculean task of draping the saree all by myself. But as the saying goes, God helps those who help themselves, my maid knocked at the right time. With some help from her, I was able to drape a decent one (I think). This beautiful temple style neck piece from Kerela (again bought by Mommie dearest) turned out to be a perfect match.

At Sadhya, this composition was well complimented by the women of the very land these two pieces come from. I felt as if I almost passed a test with no credit of my own. I am always surprised by how saree brings women together.
But my most surreal experience happened last year when I was invited to speak at a women's conference. For the first time and for no apparent reason, I ditched my western corporate dressing and picked a simple cotton saree again my mother had picked up from Assam.

I think it was a tea break when a lady broke off from her group and walked towards me. She introduced herself & then she went on to say something that left me speechless. In her words: 'After seeing you walk into the room, we were discussing why did we stop wearing saree at all?'

What's your Saree Story?
I have always been a nerd, well atleast the perceived notion of it. Truth be told it was more of laziness and my love for sleep which still exists btw😂

But for those who have been following my account would know how I have been striving to become more of an outdoor person after I was diagnosed with asthma. Don't worry it's not a sob story. 
Infact, it turned out to be a blessing in disguise. This one incident has played a pivotal role in how I perceived my life from then on. It made me more conscious about the choices I made everyday. And helped me find my way towards realising that life is way more than building a successful career or all that tick marks we try to get our whole lives without stopping for a second to think about what we really want.

I expect this year to be more exploratory in all facets of life. Imbibing that spirit is this picture taken by my instructor before I hit the last 'put' for the day. Yeah you heard it right. And what I am holding is a putter (pronounced पटर). As the amitabh bacchan said in one of his movies, english is a very funny language, well golf is a bit funny jargon game too. (Google handicap for golf) 😋#wannabegolfer

So are you planning to try something new or pick up something old again this year?

...या बस कोई बिसरी सी याद, 
इश्क़।
...
Talking about old memories. I think I have always been a sucker for all things old worldy. ...
Do you miss spontaneity of stumbling upon a photo album and then spending the next 1 hour talking about the stories behind the photos, pulling the photos out for a closer look, pressing the finger on the creased corners...

कुछ आधा सा, कुछ अधूरा सा,
तुम्हारी आँखों में शायद?
पर मेरी आँखों में पूरा सा,
इश्क़।
...
कभी आज़ाद पंछी सी उड़ान,
कभी बुदबुदाते शब्दों की लड़खड़ती ज़बान, 
इश्क़।
...
कह कर भी अनकहे सवालों सा,
उस ख़ामोशी में ढूँढते जवाबों सा,
इश्क़।
