As I write this post, listening to Pink Floyd, trying to get into the mind of the artists that made these art work, marvelling at the sheer brilliance of the work – I cannot yet fathom what is “that thing” that runs inside the heads of these talented souls. I wonder if their ideas are seeded from a personal experience, hallucination or maybe even a song.

It didn’t help when our mothers started knitting sweaters and snoods for us as soon as the Fall season began. I have been away from colder climates for more than a decade now, but I suppose the habit is engrained so deep in me that I find it hard to resist not adding more winter collection, every winters.
This weekend I did something really interesting that I'd not done in sometime - I went on a Treasure Hunt called The Aranyani Hunt. And it wasn't just a game I participated in but a part of the event I attended. And that event was the launch of the Brand Aranyani which is a lifestyle Brand ...
