“which brand do  you use?”

” I do not use products apart from Dior!”

These are lines often heard among people especially among high society women in India . The story is the same in almost any commercially ‘happening’ city in the world except that the names of the designers keep changing.

Fashion is the trend word now . I think in today’s world fashion is going too dramatic as in almost everything we do  must be in fashion. People are making their own fashion statements in order to stand out from the commons. Its become like a rat race as to who is the most fashionable!! not only related to the clothing industry , this word has become the centreplace for every field be it home decor , cars , going places etc .

Through this way fashion is capturing a place not only on earth but also in the heart of people. It is like  an ancient tradition that is being improvised with the passage of an era. Starting from the renowned monarchy to the common people in this 21st century , it is still flourishing. Fashion is a big business now with all celebrities, businessmen and women, and sports persons supporting it.

The luxury brands which includes Gucci , Michael Kors , Dior, Armani , etc are on the top of the list craved by most of the people to make them a part of their style statement. Makeup brands like NYX , Urban Decay , clarins , Elizabeth Arden, etc are also a part of the most wanted list. Fashion industry is increasing day by day around the world and people too have become very conscious about it.

There are separate collection of clothing as per the seasonal changes – summer , winter , spring , autumn collections. Dress designers are mostly concentrating on wedding and they design as per the occasion. TV channels have been set up telecasting fashions shows and ramp walks to give people an idea about the upcoming trends in this industry.

Fashion in India is also beginning to make its mark on the international platform, as accessories, mehendi (designs made by applying henna to the palms of the hands and other parts of the body)  have gained international popularity because of social media .

In India, fashion has become a growing industry with international events such as the India Fashion Week and annual shows by fashion designers .The victories of a number of Indian beauty queens in International events such as the Miss World and Miss Universe contests have also made Indian models recognized worldwide.

Fashion designers such as Ritu Kumar, Ritu Beri, Rohit Bal,  Satya Paul,  Tarun Tahiliani, JJ Valaya and Manish Malhotra are some of the well- known fashion designers in India.  Fashion covers a whole range of clothing from ornate clothes designed for wedding ceremonies , sports wear and casual wear.

Comparing the past and the present, fashion for people has changed over time. Not only in India, but also the whole world has witnessed changes in fashion statements for both men and women.

 

 

 

 

Journey to a safe Heaven : Remember me

Writing-a-Letter-to-You

“A year from now you will wish you had started today”.

Love is inevitable. Time changes, life will change but the love for  your dear ones remain the same.This was a letter written by a wife to her ex- husband when she was fighting for her life in a hospital.

Dear Mathew,

Hope you are fine and doing good in life.

It has been a long time since we took the decision of mutually separating. But even today I think about you and want you back.  In these years, I have come across many people but none could match you . Still the thought of you gives butterflies in my stomach . After so many years , I wait for your call or may be a text – but it seems you have moved on . Now when I look back , I find it so silly for us to take such a decision when matters could have been handled maturely. Things could have been sorted. I know life does not stop for anyone but you know our love was strong enough to fight against time. Today I realize these were those vague assumptions which every girl like me thinks of when she is in love with the man of her life. 

In the last few months of my life , I just want to say that I still love you and that no one could ever take your place in my life.

God bless you.

Best wishes with love , 

Emma

Change can come in many forms in our lives. It might come forcefully like a tidal wave, or creep along incrementally like a glacier. It might come in the form of devastating tragedy, difficult choices, broken relationships, or even new opportunities.

Many times, the only way to improve our lives is to force ourselves to undergo difficult change. That might mean breaking up and leaving a stale – but comfortable – relationship, leaving a mediocre – but stable – job, moving away from a nice – but uninspiring – location, or anything else that is holding us back from accomplishing our dreams.

But yes, dealing with uninvited change in our lives is often difficult and painful. Some day, after we have mastered the winds and the waves, the tides and gravity, we will harness the energies of love. All our years we have been strong fighting all the obstacles. But when we know that our life is coming to an end , that is when we want the most loved person to be with us so that we can peacefully take our last breathe.

Beauty of being a donna!

Femininity- a word which is somewhat difficult to understand. God has made each of us( male or female) showing there should be distinct difference between the two. As a woman, it is our responsibility to let our femininity shine. But what does that mean ? Do I always need to keep my nails painted ? Or is it an offence to kick back and play football ? Or am I a failure if a 3-course dinner is not on the table at the right time?

The answer to these questions is a ‘NO’ . Much of our perception of what it means to be a ‘woman’ is shaped by our views of a woman’s role in history . Do I relate with domestic housewife , corporate executive or the vivacious actress?? SHE is trustworthy , hard-working ,cares for her family , helps those in need and speaks in wisdom.

A woman draws out various characterestics starting from physical , mental , emotional , biological . She is capable of doing anything and everything. It s her inner strength that helps her fight against all odds.  It is a God’s gift and all of us must appreciate it. The origin of a child , daughter, wife, mother, grandmother is the journey of an average woman.

It is said that the woman was made of rib out of the side of Adam , not made out of his head to top him neither put of his feet to be trampled on by him but out of his side to be equal with him , under his arm to be protected and near his heart to be loved by him .

As a young woman taking her first step into woman hood , I often find myself struggling in a world  made up of conflicting messages about what women is or how one should be. It is the media or the people around that continue to reinforce the misguided views about women especially when it comes to their place in society.

But whatsoever , being a woman is something to be proud of . She is sensitive , assertive , beautiful and unique. She is God’s creation and should never be kept apart or excluded from anything that she wants to do.
