Next coming up my favourite part, the travelogue. Stay tuned.

Sikkim trip: Outfit Series- Part 2

This is what I wore on our way to Pelling. The temperature was falling as we were gradually approaching towards Pelling and I chose my favourite, and only one, J. Crew sweater for the day. The yellow scarf was given as a farewell gift from our hotel at Rinchenpong. I will talk about it in detail in my travelogue.

Sikkim trip: Outfit Series- part 1

So my short West Sikkim trip is over. I had lots of fun and enjoyed the beauty of Himalaya like a mad explorer. I would soon post my travelogue as I simply love writing my travel stories. This time I have decided to post the outfit posts separately because I did not want to ruin the charm of my travelogue.
When I travel, I like to travel light, so my outfits during that period would be based mostly on my ability of permutation and combination. I travel and buy clothes on my own money and I give more importance to the exploration part, so you will never see me roaming around in inappropriate and stupid (because it does not go with the place at all, no offence to the poor designer) toga dress in a temple or in stilettoes in the middle of a desert. Anyway, here is my not-so-perfect documentation of what I wore throughout the trip. Today is part 1.

Outfit details:
Sweater: Latin Quarters (bday gift)
Jeans: Tokyo Talkies
Shoes: North Star
Scarf, Vest, necklace: Thrifted
Shades, bag: Via A…

Kiriburu Meghahatuburu Trip

When we first planned our trip, I googled on Kiriburu tourism, but sadly, found almost nothing. Again, a Bengali book came to my rescue. If anybody has ever read Suchitra Bhattacharjee's Sarandaye Shoytan, they would know what a beautiful picture of this entire area she depicted with her words.
Kiriburu is a small hilltop tribal town in West Singhbhum, Jharkhand. It is situated on the border of Jharkhand and Odisha. Both Kiriburu and Meghahatuburu are part of the Saranda forest range. Saranda means 'land of seven hundred hills'. Given the place's geography (Saranda forest range is a part of Chota Nagpur plateau area), the name seems quite apt. In tribal language, 'kiri' means elephant and 'buru' means small hill. Kiriburu is one of the seven hundred hills of Saranda. A tribe named Ho inhabit this area. It's a very small town, but apparently Kiriburu's literacy rate is even higher than our national literacy rate, almost 67%. Both Kiriburu and Megh…

Karigar Haat, 2014

Like every year, NABARD had organized Karigar Haat, that took place at Saltlake Central Park fairground. Small scale entrepreneurs from all over India came here to sell handicrafts and other eco-friendly products. The objective of this fair was to help small scale entrepreneurs and other self help groups through sustainable development. As a shameless shopaholic, I must say I contributed fairly to the development goal of our country's central bank for rural agricultural and small scale sector. :-P
