Left In The Dark

Left in the dark. To thrive. To survive. To look for the lost drive. Left in the dark. To wither. To silently feel the smother. Left in the dark. To shy. To shush the heart while all it does is cry. To not be bleak, empty, wry. Left in the dark. To try. To try. Jewellery - Ritika Sachdeva and Zariin Creative Direction, Modelling, Styling, Edit and Words - Ritu Arya | Photography - Praveen

Watching You Watch Me

Feat. H&M X Kenzo Watching you, watch the world. Steal a glance. Wait. And ache. While you mumble to yourself. And hide. Watching you, look away. Watching you, broken. While you try. Try and pretend. Watching you want. With those silent eyes. Watching you, ache. And say nothing. Watching you. Watch me.

Too Close To The Water

By the ocean, I stand. By the ocean, I wait and watch. Breathless. Petrified. For I am too close to the water, but not you. All I see is blue, but no where close is you. By the ocean, I stand. While I wait and watch. Look 1 - Top from Anokhi | Glasses from Pataaka | Denim Shorts from Forever 21. Look 2 - Top from Anokhi | Dress from Door of Maai | Earrings

A Backyard Summer

Hot afternoons, quiet evenings. Silent trees, waiting to be caressed by the wind. Standing tall, from the moment the sun filters through the windows, till the sky prepares for bed with the starry blanket. Dry crunchy leaves on the sidewalk. A bunch of birds. Restless insects, hanging clothes. Tender coconuts, drying throats. Noon naps and the lullabic sound of fan the blades. Small errands in the scorching heat. Sticky skin, wet riverbank. Flowers staring at

Hue and Cry

Dress : Aish Life | Rings : Zariin Fifteen minutes since I’ve arrived back into the city and have already thrown more than that number of cuss words out of my mouth, . With a face that is far from attractive and happy. Need to cover another 2 hours of distance to get home. Now, you do the calculation. Impatient-senseless-accident prone driving and rowdy behaviour seems to be the current trend. If only people would calm

Echoes and Impressions

Now and then when I cross an abandoned building, a small turmoil takes place in my stomach. And before I even finish passing by the building, or even think of a halt, I end up weaving an entire story about the place, the people who must have lived there, spent all their lives, watched their children grow and so on. And of the situations that must have led them to hand over the place to

Facades, Facets and Faces – Maharashtra | Part I

Mumbai, a city that I love to travel to, and want to escape the moment I reach. The city that I have had a very strange bittersweet relationship with, through some pictures. For sometimes the words fail to describe these feelings. And a few tracks I have been listening to : - The XX by Fiction - Underworld by Sy:Rax - Fun House by Delta Heavy - Ever Fallen In Love by Nouvelle Vague - Bad Karma by Axel Thesleff

A post about simple hairdos that I opt for, in day to day life.

Almost Everyday

Hairstyles or Hairdos, apart from shoes and lip colors etc. prove to be a vital mood brightener and complete that look within minutes, when you stand wondering about 'What's missing' in front of the mirror for almost thirty minutes. Yes, I do. The smallest change in the hairdo, like a side braid or a slightly higher pony can make the sun shine brighter and the day happeir. Sharing a few simple hairdos that I tend to stick
