I am a dreamer and a realist.
A left-handed Libran who believes in doing what is right.
My preferred color palette is monochrome hues of black, white and brown; but occasionally, I fancy a bold red dress.
I love exploring the urban culture of cities; but the sunset on the beach and the sound of Ganges evokes a sense of tranquility.
I can sit still, lost in thoughts for hours. Dance to me, is the ultimate form of self-expression (I wish I could dance more often than I do and much better than I can).
I am a self-confessed foodie. A cup of hot chocolate with a slice of banana walnut cake is my definition of absolute indulgence. And my love for airline/ hospital food is a well-kept secret.
I wish to travel back in time through pages of history, to the Colonial era and record the way of life, art and culture, and every detail about that period- on my laptop!
I do not watch a lot of television; I can sit through hours of rom-com movies or re-runs of the Friends show.
I am an introvert who takes time to open up; despite so, I am attempting to direct some of my un-channelized creativity
A true feminist at heart, I have strong olfactory senses, and a high preference for male fragrance.
The Ultimate Style statement, in my definition is:
A linen and gold woven sari teamed with a dark trench coat, a tassel-necklace peeking from beneath the lapel, high-heeled pumps, an emerald and pear diamond ring that is gleaming from beneath a thick tome clutched firmly in the hand of my muse while she makes her way through the streets of New York City.
