Ancient Doors, Tombs and Anarkalis

“Some people choose to see the ugliness in this world. The disarray. I choose to see the beauty.”

– Dolores (Westworld)

This is something I believe about the Indian culture. Despite our problems, our challenges as a people, I love our heritage. The richness of our scriptures, the languages, the variety of climates, the multiplicity of colours and flavours, all adds up to a unique Indian experience. And yes, the fashion. The beautiful outfits, the designs, the silhouettes, all of these grace our fashion scene phenomenally.

When I used to be insecure about my body, I used to feel quite comfortable in Indian clothes because they have the unique ability to cover you up elegantly, while still making you feel confident. A little down the line, I embraced a more diverse set of clothes when I was more comfortable and secure in my own body. And that was when I developed more love for Indian wear because of its versatility. It’s a fact that you can’t take out India from an Indian 🙂

I wear this extra long anarkali, adorning my wrists with plain white glass bangles, silver jhumkas and the extra-ethnic bindi. The idea was to keep the focus on the beautiful silhouette of this gorgeous Indian kurta. Nothing feels more regal than the flowy, breathtaking silhouettes of Anarkalis. And what better back drop than the supremely regal gardens of Humayun’s Tomb.
