My childhood was pretty boring. Boarding school in the hills, blah blah blah. Last two years of high school I studied science(big mistake, huuuuge) then some God sent career counsellor guided me to the right path and here I am!!
First job…a part-time job at a call centre called GE while I was still in university. I got paid Rs. 7000 a month for 4 hours a day, 5 days a week. It was pretty cool back in 2002.
A regular working day..
I don’t have a regular day. One day I could be running around like a headless chicken sourcing, or getting sunburned at some location, shooting, or just staring at the computer the whole day in my office.
A non-working day..
As boring as it sounds, l sleep mostly when I’m not working, or I hang with my dog, or go to the spa.
What inspires you and keeps you going?
There is no particular person or a thing that inspires me but to see all these amazing creative talents do amazing work in their respective fields really makes me want to do a better job at what I do. I love fashion. I enjoy beautiful clothes, feeling the fabrics, & admiring the workmanship. For me, amazing fashion on the streets, and to see a beautiful show is a wonderful experience, and hugely inspiring. In life, I think a mix of me, my friends, my job, and my dad, keeps me going.
You like? Hearts, Jil Sander, bright colours, Facebook, a good laugh, spring, Wearabout (and I’m not just saying it), dressing well, holding hands(strictly with lovers only), NYMag, Naga Cuisine, getting photographed, Modern Family, and a lot more things that I can’t think of right now.
and don’t like? Bad shoes, gate crashers, smelly feet, Delhi summers, Holi, Fat.
