Day 1 in Pondicherry

playsuit which looks more like a bathingsuit- thrifted
shades- Forever 21
backpack- Pepe Jeans
1.Sat in a train for 48hours while going and another 48hours while coming back. Budget holiday. Met horrible old men who refused to give us our seats. Spent 19th birthday in a train. Lost lots of money. Don't even begin to ask. But at the end of it all, it was pretty awesome.

18th September 2012

dress- bought from Goofy Goober
bracelets- GK,Delhi
1. Snow Falling on Cedars by David Guterson. One of my recent favourites. About the internment of the Japanese-American Community during the 2nd world war and the deep prejudices that remained many years after the war. Also I was intrigued by the idea of how geography of a place can shape the nature and personality of human beings, not to stereotype but to understand people better.

Summer Style CONTEST still on

1. How some lines you can go over them again and again, you can't seem to say it enough, like this one-
Oh god It's wonderful
To get out of bed
 Drink too much coffee
 Smoke too many cigarettes 
 And love you too much
-Steps, Frank O'Hara
2. The bag is from faballey. com . As I have mentioned before it's a really amazing online store in India. The brown satchel in the previous post is also from there.So is the neckpiece I am wearing but it can hardly be seen in the pictures. cuff- GK, Delhi , top- store in Imphal, pants- Self-designed(but someone else tailored it since I still don't know how to work a sewing machine. It is very sad indeed), the pumps(which i have no choice but to reuse again and again), aviators- Forever New

A garland of kundo

1. Another wedding. Attended three this season.Finally making sense of this event which is supposed to mark the start of a new life. A new beginning, they say. I was wondering how it would feel to wake up and find that you are in a whole new house, waking up to greetings of complete strangers who is now your family. In Manipur, when you get married, you begin it by living in a joint family. Usually, not always. After that you can shift out, it's a choice.
2.I like dressing up like this. Especially because it feels so unique somehow after all the dresses and the shorts. Though till a few years back I was this obnoxious kid who disdained what I called old fashioned attire! How I seem to keep growing up, though not at all physically(I so wish I would)!
3.Some of the rituals, I observed, are very complicated. This must be performed at this time exact. Or you must walk in this way only. The mother can't go to drop the bride at the groom's house, so on and so forth.It's arduous, exacting, rigid. Well...maybe not so rigid. There's the sanksritization of rituals, the bollywoodisation as well.

1.I have to keep reusing these pumps because I left all of my heels in Delhi. *sigh* So don't make fun of me!;P
2.I have been climbing hills lately. They can be scaled in 20-25 mins so it's not really much of a Sisypheian task. And I don't even have to push a boulder(read- Brother) uphill. Will take my camera tomorrow and take some pictures from up there. They have some ancient academy up there, something like a cult.All the men keep really long hair. Me imagines them training in fencing and stuff. But then again, don't always believe my imaginations.
For Indian residents only since I can't ship the prize abroad.
