THE LOCAL TRAIN | WINNER of Season 1 SENNHEISER TOP 50

A few days back, the bassist of my ex- band CMajor3Minor, who call themselves CYPHER now, has shared the link to the latest song KHUDI of THE LOCAL TRAIN, the winner of the first season of the Sennheiser Top 50. That was a song which kept buzzing on my head for quiet sometime and then one fine morning I got an e- mail from SENNHEISER to write a blogpost on the SEASON 3 TOP 50. Last year’s finalé was one riot of a live performance and this e- mail meant free pass to a great evening filled with alluring performances by some of the really good bands of the country and also catching up with many aspiring musicians and music enthusiasts.

Green. Green is an evergreen colour. And with a little twist to green- the camouflage or in common terms the army print, has made a huge comeback this season. It won’t be wrong to say that there is hardly anybody who doesn’t like this colour. Green signifies freshness, energy, nature and peace. By taking inspiration from the same military green colour- MAX FASHIONS has launched its latest Autumn Collection called ENDLESS JOURNEY. To promote the same, MAX has initiated a campaign last weekend known as ‘MAKE AMAZING MEMORIES’ and it was really heart warming to be a part of it.

THINK PINK

PINK! The colour and the artist, both have my heart. From Balenciaga’s campaign to the likes of Celine, pink made a bold statement this year at the runways and the streets. Pink in a millenial shades- fuschia to baby pink, darker hues to metallic shades, was seen taking the limelight. And I was talking about how much I  love the song TRY !

HALF INDIAN

GALE of ARUNACHAL PRADESH, MISING SADOR & MUGA RIHA OF ASSAM

I missed the smell of BAAH GAAZ ( BAMBOO SHOOT) and the taste of MASOR TENGA ( TANGY FISH CURRY). The joy of waking up to the songs of cuckoo and the wind acting like a set of ten thousand needles piercing your skin. Evening strolls to the favourite momo shop by the corner and weekends at the ice cream parlor. The gossips during the lunch break and rushing for the tuitions after school. The sweaty city bus rides and the queues at the SINGRA ( SAMOSA) stall. The tall mountains and the greens. How I missed you my beautiful place! I can never get enough of you!

REPLAY

THE VELVET RADIO, DENIM, SHIVANI BORUAH, GENDER EQUALITY

Time and again, whenever I and a few girlfriends of mine discuss about the issues on gender equality, have we not discussed about our personal incidents. The stereotypical society that we grew up in has always curtailed upon us from developing many skill sets. Many goals which we could have achieved. Many dreams which still lie buried deep inside our hearts.

THE VELVET RADIO

It’s been sometime. Sometime since I took up my pen and the paper to figure out the sequence of a post. In fact, to plan a new one. Personal things can damage your work life you see. But certain personal things are unavoidable. They are like that puzzle which you have always been trying hard to solve but to no avail! Like that of the quagmire, which, no matter how hard you try to pull yourself out of it, you keep going inside it.

Deep into it.

Be it the songs of the cuckoo in the burst of daylight or the sound of the crickets on a lazy afternoon. Be it the KHULLANG ESHEI of Manipur or the BORGEET of Assam. Be it the notes of the UJUK TAPU of Arunachal Pradesh or the resonance of the colliding bamboos during the CHERAW DANCE of Mizoram. Be it the DHOL  and PEPA of ASSAM or the GUITAR RIFFS at a concert in SHILLONG. MUSIC is everywhere in the Northeast.  From ZIRO VALLEY to HORNBILL, Northeast India is all about music. In fact, here, music forms an integral part of the lives of the people.

TRACKPANTS AND THE MONOCHROME

TRACKPANTS Streetstyle Whenever a new trend hits the streets, I get very skeptical. I had the same feelings when I saw TRACKPANTS trending for something other than running. And after seeing them enough, I could not help create a look myself. Below (and above) is how I would wear my trackpants outside the gym:

SUMMER LAYERS

After the harsh winter and the almost- nil spring, here in bangalore, layering in summer is the last thing you’d like to talk about. In fact, many of you might even nod your head in disbelief when I say layering can be done in summer too(Yes, kill me in this heat!).

A LUXE BATHWARE EXPERIENCE

While growing up I always dreamt of leading a lavish life with spacious bedrooms and luxe bathrooms. Recently, 27th of April, 2017, to be precise, when I was invited to the launch of KEHA CASA, a sprawling 8000 sq. ft. experience centre at Bengaluru’s prominent Kensington Road in Ulsoor, the same childhood memories and thoughts engulfed my head. The founders- Kekin Shah and Abdul Hameed Khan have set up an exclusively luxury area and I couldn’t help but gaze into it with an open mouth!
