Bye Bye Thandi!

Dated February 2010

Bye Bye Thandi!

Ok, it hasn’t completely withered, but it’s so much better these days with the temperature staying in double digits. If the cold wasn’t enough, then it was the fog wrecking havoc across the city. Trains, planes, cars and even Gujarat Dhara, they were all delayed (ok, there’s no correlation, don’t think too much).

Now we are in the second month of the year, and February other than being famous for being a shorter month is loved for another reason, Valentine’s Day. “What? Excuse me? How can you? This is not the place? It is not our culture? It’s a Western concept!” Does your reaction fall in any of these categories? If yes, then you could do some rethinking. The world is moving at a fast pace, and even though it’s not necessary to ape and emulate what others are doing, it is important to be aware and be able to accept what happens in the environment around you. We would be fooling ourselves if we don’t agree to the fact that there are ‘boyfriends’ and ‘girlfriends’ who exist around us. While we may not approve of it and never if they are part of our own family, but we can at least try and understand them as part of bridging the gap between generations. If you are parents, I suggest you let your kids have some harmless fun, and if you are a youngster, then always remember your values.

So close on the heels of the occasion, we thought of dedicating this issue to Marriages. With the invitation cards piling up in our homes, what better than getting some suggestions on what to wear and look our best! So our stylist Palak Doshi is back from having celebrated an important occasion and we have also kept the course study section reserved for Wedding Planners.
