Breaking Common Stereotypes
There is a tanker load of stereotypes that we use on a daily basis, that we throw away carelessly without giving a second thought. They can either have a negative or positive effect, regardless of which, we reinforce them on a daily basis. The most famous (rather, infamous) ones are gender stereotypes, which range from ‘pink is for girls and blue is for boys’ to ‘women are meant to stay at home and cook’. These stereotypes are so deadly that they have sunk into our...

Doing It Yourself, The Indian Way
We shape our dwellings, and afterwards, our dwellings shape us.– Winston Churchill. And what better way to shape it than using one’s own hands and mind. Currently, the growth of the Do-It-Yourself or DIY segment in India is primarily driven not by the popular mindset of saving money, rather by thirst for knowledge, learning a new set of skills and getting appreciation from family and peers. In most of the cases, DIY is deeply rooted towards having the fun of creation. This...

The Art Of Fine Living
Fine living starts with proper conceptualisation. We are very particular about perfect and sophisticated living, but do we also create our homes with such perfection? Are we even germane to the ambience we are living in? Perhaps not. But this can only be achieved, if our home interiors have a certain kind of concept implemented. Concepts are basically abstract ideas which have a certain pattern, story, theme or similarity of items. This might be the designers’ jargon, but should be...
The Garage That Bloomed
For five years now, I have been tending a plot – cultivating hostas, lillies and astilbes, gently trying to persuade a hydrangea bush not to depart this earth – in the Lotus Garden, a community garden on West 97th Street between Broadway and West End Avenue.The Lotus Garden is one of the most lush and tranquil spots in New York, but if you’ve never heard of it, you are far from alone. While a sign on an iron gate plainly marks the entrance, all that is visible through the...
