Can a City Change You ?
Kashmir to Bombay Does Bombay Change You?“All those who Wander are not Lost” .Now you guys must be wondering why am I reminiscing this lovely phrase .On a wonderful evening i was wandering by the side of the sea in my Deep Blue denims and contrast chequered shirt by DEAL JEANS .It was then i thought to narrate you A Story. Not many of you guys know I was born in Majestic land Jammu and Kashmir .Land of Amarnath ,Lord Shiva.We moved to Bombay when i was in Seventh Grade. In India our Families play a major role in laying our Foundations . Back then my family had a vision to make A doctor out of me so they thought may be Bombay will give me better education grounds .Haha! Forgive me Lord I am a sinner. Eventually I landed up doing Architecture because I thought I was creative enough and I shall create stuff from my own mind although I never knew how to draw stuff. Being a rebel myself I joined a drawing class before entering architecture. I was more than satisfied when my hands started doodling more than I thought I could . Well today I am in Final year struggling to get my Thesis done.
It’s been 14 Years since we moved to Bombay I am officially a Bombay girl now. When I go back to visit Jammu no body fails to insist how much city has changed me!
But really HAVE I ?
Answer is A probable No ! It is probably Going to take a life time for me to absorb Bombay into myself . While city is brimming with crazy party life when sun goes down you will rarely find me in party places. My ideal evening would be sitting with a refreshing cup of tea watching the sunset . Since I was a teenager who was a little on a heavier side but after I lost significant amount of weight my biological clock got set to working out late. So while people are getting sloshed with tequila shots after shots you will probably find me with my kind of people working out with the adrenaline rush. That is my kind of pleasure. Sometimes I am sulking in and sometimes I am a crazily energetic person. My days have changed now I spend most of the time planning strategies and ways to build ArchAttire . Well for this fact I can say ArchAttire wouldn’t have evolved if I wasn’t in Mumbai . City gave me courage to fulfill the dreams and be opinionated . City gives me strength to fulfill the Sufism that was seeded in me from my birthplace Kashmir. Mumbai City never ever fails to amaze any one. There is so much energy in this city. It’s decided one hell of a Hot spot.So many sub divisions and different genres of World breathing at a same time. Being in a city that never sleeps you also run under a risk of getting dissolved and loosing your own identity as people are busy following Leagues. I would suggest building your own League.My seed being from Kashmir I like to take things slow and not loose my identity.Few things stay constant no matter where you are from or where you go.That Constant would be My basic attire on Casual days. Those days where you indulge in calming your mind doing absolutely nothing , taking life easy inspite of being located in a city that never stops . Denims , Chequered shirt and Boots is my ideal self explanatory look that talks about the anonymous set of emotions any girl of my age might go through while sulking at the sunset and reviving the fact that wherever she is now , she is definitely destined to be. Bombay girl / Kashmiri girl or whichever place you belong to never forget that you a have
significant character about yourself. It’s not what you wear defines you it’s your persona and how hard you hold on to it . This was my first story telling attempt in my blog. I also imitated Shivaswag in my hairdo since i belong to a place where Bholenath resides.I guess that is where my core energy comes from.We shot these pictures in Bombay and i absolutely love how subway complements my whole look with DEAL JEANSBRAND PARTNER– DEAL JEANS
