Finally after battling headache for two consecutive days I got rid of it. I am in no condition when I have headache, it totally makes me crazy, I don't like people near me even talking loudly, anything noisy a little bit drive me crazy. Such havocs are there in my life when I suffer from headache. But you just can't deny to let the people around you to don't let as there way. Only you are suffering from an ailment not everybody, so have patience with the things going around. Hubby warned me for not using my mobile for so long but how can I stay away from IG family it's like starving for no good reason. Anyway I promised him that I will restrict my time for Android, let's see how much able I am in keeping promises.
Childhood memories of Durga Puja. All the children of our mohalla were excited for the Puja every year because as the Bengali club was in our locality and We all enjoy the fun. The sound of the dhak baja made me to dance with joy. As for Bengalis the celebration is grand but for we all non Bengali children it was playing , swinging eating and much more fun. We all collect money which we get from the nau Kanya bhoj to eat chana Chur, jhula ride, balloons and buy miniatures for playing. Though many non Bengalis fast during Navratri ,even I also started fasting at very small age of 13 but this didn't mean that we won't enjoy the Puja.
Yesterday when Ruby mam initiated for #pujoaartant , the child in me came out to share my experience of Durga Puja.
My love for Bengali sarees grew with my mother wearing tant saree. Her wardrobe had tant gifted by my Nani, mama, masi, papa, coz they know she is fond of tant. Whenever the cycle samal came from Kolkata she make sure to pick the beautiful ones and I wondered when I will buy sarees like her, and wear like her . Those were days of my childhood when saree for me was only taanter saree. Now I wear chiffons, Mul cottons, georgette silks also but I love tant, nothing can beat my love for it.
My entry for Ruby Mam's #pujoaartant . Thanks a lot @rubychatterjeecreations for making me inspired from your wardrobe. #ilovemysaree#sareelove 😍 #sareenotsorry#sareesofinstagram#iworkinasaree#ilovemysaree .
👑The Empress👑 ~ SALVATION OF DAWN Look to this day, For it is life, The very life of life. In its brief course lie the truths And realities of your existence; The bliss of growth The glory of action, and The splendor of beauty; For yesterday is but a dream And tomorrow is only a vision, But today well lived makes Every yesterday a dream of happiness And every tomorrow a vision of hope. Look well, therefore, to this day. Such is the salvation of the dawn. - The Bhagavad Gita

In the spirits of the season of love, this luxurious collection ensembles timeless red and pink that symbolizes love, beauty and courage to the beauty hearts to shine bright on a rainy day.
Today on #nationalhandloomday thought it appropriate to post pictures of this Banarasi saree. My 📸 has failed to capture the immense beauty if this pastel aqua colored saree.
A kind of #brocade inspired by kinkhabs (meaning beyond a dream), which was originally woven by the weavers of Gujarat and deeply influenced the weaving of #tanchoi sarees in Banaras. The #jamewar designs on Banarasi silks were again inspired by patterns of Kashmiri #kanishawls , and the #kalka designs were inspired by the #Baluchari weavers of West Bengal.
This saree has it all. Please swipe to see the last picture of the reverse of the fabric and you will realize the skill required to weave such an ethereal beauty. This saree curated by TushU's is BOOKED.
Interesting information I gathered while reading Indian Saris by Vijai Singh Katiar that though there is no concrete research to support the claim, experts in the handloom industry feel that the concept of the pallav, the end of the sari, originated during the Pallava period.
Just got back home from a beautiful and joyous, Indian wedding ceremony...absolutely amazing! All the women were wearing gorgeous colorful Saree's. Now getting a little bit of rest for the reception tonight 💃
You know I love Bengali sarees. Every weave has a story. Like this beautiful blue khesh saree. Thanks to all the instagramers for providing loads of info about this weave. I came to know about this weave probably last year when I got super active on IG. The Idea of using old sarees in weaving a new one is the very right concept of #sustainablefashion#sustainableliving#sustainableclothing
The khesh weave originated from the Birbhum district of West Bengal. Yarns from an old saree is torn and woven in between a new saree which gives the saree a whole new beauty. These khesh weave is not just limited to sarees, it is used for quilt,stole, bedspread and many other things, which shows how we Indians are always in the good thought of sustainability. Whether you buy a khesh saree or weave it, you are playing a major role in our environment. To reuse things in a different way every time gives it a new look and freshness.
When I saw the pic of this saree I immediately wanted to have it in my wardrobe for two reasons. First it's a khesh saree and second it's beautiful aqua blue colour. This is a half and half saree with khesh and quirky owl print which looks fabulous. I wore for a small day time function on Sunday. My friends were drooling over it and I patted myself for choosing this. Such is the elegance of this saree. Paired this with some silver jewelry to complete the look.
My humble entry for Ishu's @thesurrealsagittarian#bengalweavesweek . I do have another khesh saree with me, will post it soon. #sareelove 😍 #sareenotsorry#sareesofinstagram#sixyardsof love #ilovemysaree .
I love getting dressed not for anybody else to get loads of compliments but I like that way. Few days back a lady asked me why I wear sarees very often if there are so many options to wear .she happily quoted "you look way more older than me ." Threw a victorious smile and walked away. I thought she was happy with the notion that she looks much younger than me.
But trust me this very incident only made me laugh out very loud🤣🤣🤣
God bless her for her very thought of being young forever.
Do people really ponder over the only fact for being young is to only discourage people for their own dressing just to fulfill their longing 💓 for always being young? I don't know why people think wearing a jeans and top or any western wear will make their ageing process slow or probably it would act as an anti ageing serum for them. Really how poor they are to waste their time of thinking such nonsense. Age didn't have a reverse gear, people have to accept it. Anyway all this roaring thoughts can't deteriorat my love for six yards.

Life is lived in the greys! I had a house party last night and it was a whole lot of fun with the neighbours. Though I was tired after all the cooking, I deliberately wanted to wear a saree. I chose a light chiffon saree that doesn’t even have a fall stitched and teamed it with a readymade sequin blouse because right now I can’t seem to be able to fit into my tailored blouses 🙈 But that is not going to stop me! NYTimes has been stupid enough to run a ridiculous article that claims that saree wearing has been revived in India because of Hindu Nationalism. Couldn’t be further from truth! I have grown up seeing my grandmothers, mom and aunts wearing sarees. I love wearing them myself and don’t miss out on opportunities to wear them unless I am really feeling unwell or rushed. Sadly that has often been the case off late. But I am consciously trying to change that. Saree to me has always been the most elegant, dignified, stylish and sexy dress that one can wear. And, if Hindu Nationalists take a peek at my blouse wardrobe they will die of outrage 😂😂😂 #sareenotsorry#saree#chiffonsaree#ilovemysaree#sareeblouse#dontbestupidNYTimes#sareerevival#beyond100sareepact#igers#styleaddict#sareestories#styleblogger#fashion#fashionblogger#indianfashion#womenwholovesarees#pointmade#fashionista#easyglam
Pink and black ,it is today...!!! And with a hand embroidered bangle to go with it,can't imagine how light a saree can be..!! To add to the oomph,a stylish blouse with french lace on the shpulders #chiffon#summerwear#ilovemysaree
53/2019: Today in a black vintage Assam silk in orange suta work which is around 20 years old .It belonged to my Ma and passed onto to me.It's raining quite heavily here and the weather is cool in the hills which let me drape my silk today . I have paired it with a benarasi brocade blouse because of the chill weather outside and I am not feeling like wearing a coat for an evening out. I have kept the jewellery minimal and let the saree speak.
It is called in Assamese 'Paat'(silk) and this my entry for Rebecca's @rebecca_saree#worldwideweaves . My favourite sarees are from Assam especially Paat and Muga silk. Though traditionally it is in the form of Mekhela Chador but now we easily find Assam Paat (silk) sarees in vibrant colours both in Guna (golden zari)and suta(threadwork).It is my favourite because I was born and brought up in Assam and I am proud of the rich culture showcased through the different weaves of Assam eg there are Paat, Muga, Eri,pure cotton as well as mix of Paat and Muga called Paat Muga.
Another my recent favourite is Orissa weaves because of its wide variety both in silk and cotton. I am still in the verge of collecting them, slowly learning and seeing especially VijayaMa'am's @vijayalaxmichhabra posts and other saree experts from the Insta family.
I hate sarees with big kolka motifs or called big mango designs in full body seen mostly in silk sarees or silk cottons.I also hate a half and half colour sarees as I feel it makes me look even more shorter🙈😁.
Though I hail from Delhi... I live in West Bengal now post marriage currently in a small district called Kalimpong near to Darjeeling. #assameseattire#assampaatsilk#brocade#sareeblousedesigns#sareesofinstagram#sareesisterhood#sareesakhis#ilovemysaree#vintagesaree#kalimpong#sareeblogger#10sareesinmay#100sareepact2019
