“I’m awkward and quiet at times but I do the stupidest random shit when I get comfortable with someone. I am usually hanging out at my studio. I am currently listening to Don’t Leave by Mo. I like black, jogging pants, sleepovers, and feeling loved. My style inspiration is Gwen Stefani.”

Shruti Bheda, 27. Has a cat named Zhi-Zhi. Likes Portishead.

“I grew up in Mumbai. My childhood was fun. I loved going to Kutch(native place) almost every summer vacation. We had a farm there so all day long my brother & I would go climb mango trees, roam in the fields, collect vegetables for home, watch peacocks dance & chase them. We had a swimming pool…I loved cycling & skating too.”

Any places in India you travel often to?
I have been going to Himachal Pradesh every year for at least a month for last 7 years.

Why is that?
I’m in love with the mountains. I feel connected to them. I love walking through them endlessly knowing them better as each year passes by, watching them change. I find myself change with them.

Do you find it unsafe to travel on your own in Bombay?
Yes I do. But whenever I’m traveling alone, especially at night, I keep my knife out in case of any troubles.

What’s the best thing about Bombay?
Its people and Carter Road.

What’s your plan for the evening?
I am going to my friend’s house to have some beer and dance.

What worries you?
I worry about melting glaciers, beautiful mountains, human nature, city life, and myself.

recent stuff & plans | August

August 24, 2013

There is an Indian Street Style post on BuzzFeed made of my photos(mostly). Take a look.

Jonathan Longuet, a French artist, is making life size paintings of my photographs for an exhibition in Delhi. A rough draft.

Some of my photos were part of a street photography exhibit at Artscape, Baltimore.

Wearabout was on Tasveer Journal sometime ago.

I have an 8 page street style story in GQ India this month.

I have to interrupt my Northeast updates for now. They will have to wait. I was too slow miscalculated my blogging speed. WIll get on with it again in September.

Fashion week in Bombay started yesterday. Will be blogging from there.

Contemplating a giveaway. Would anyone be interested in old looking clothes & books?

Looking forward to leaving Bombay again in October & travel for maybe 6 months. My lease gets over; which is a great thing. The best. Looking at Dharamsala, Calcutta, & Sikkim. Maybe down south.

Also, I’m looking for someone to help me organize all my images and edit a lot of text. You get paid but it’s not much money. If you’re interested, write to me at wearabout at gmail

street style nagaland

Lidowe Krome, 21. Philosophy student at Patkai. Belongs to Chakhesang tribe. Has been in Dimapur for about 7 years. Spends most of her time playing online poker and Need For Speed. Likes Fergie, Vh1, Whistle, True Love & noodles. Shops mostly from Zara & Adidas. Has coloured her hair more than 50 times.

What do you like about Fergie?
Her music. And her style — it’s very bold.

When did you start colouring your hair?  
I think the first time was when I was in class 4th. I used to watch my mom colour her hair. She inspired me. Later she started helping me to colour mine and I’d also go to the parlour.

Do you read any fashion magazines or fashion websites?
Sometimes People magazine. I used to check out some blogs through facebook but I don’t remember now.

Where do you hangout here?
We mostly go to Zephyr lounge. Or Baskin Robbins near Popular Bakery.

Do you go clubbing?
Sometimes. Maybe to Pebbles or some house parties or resorts.

Have you been to the only film theatre here?
No. Where is it?

It’s somewhere near Breeze restaurant.

How did you spend your 21st birthday?
At home, with my family. Nothing special. There was a cake. This other time I spent it in my college canteen with friends as most of them stay in the hostel.

Photographed earlier this year at the Wednesday Market in Dimapur on a Sunday.

street style shillong india

“I was born and brought up in Shillong. Growing up as a child in Shillong was pretty adventurous. I remember my locality friends and I inventing our own games, going up to the mountains not so far away from the place we stayed at in search for crabs and tadpoles. As a child I was very notorious, I must say, not so girly too! I cared less about how I looked..was very well known for bullying all the kids in my locality!

Other than regular stuff I studied classical piano for 7 years. I’m a professional musician and a songwriter. I sing for the band 4th Element. I’ve been singing since I was ten, and have been with the band for 5 years now. I like all things original and I’m madly obsessed with ships and castles.

I like Shillong because it’s beautiful and has easy access to everything. Its people and its food make it very special. Although if given a choice to live in any other place, it’ll probably be Bombay, because I feel that’s where you can be who you are! “

 street style shillong india

Describe a day in your life here.
I wake up I eat if I have nothing to do I write. I write a lot actually if I don’t have rehearsals which are once or twice a week. I stay with my mom so I do some house chores like babysitting my niece…then listen to a lot of music & just laze around.

A secret you’re tired of keeping?
I’m secretly attracted to girls. (But I would never want it to come true.)


Photos from January 2011. Photographed near Beat house, Laitumkhrah, Shillong.

khasi woman shillong

Annette. In her 40s. Is a Khasi housewife, runs a kindergarten school, and is interested in fashion.

I took this photo back in January 2011 in Shillong. My host Mary took me to her father’s house. Annette is her half-sister. I wanted to photograph Annette in the attire she was in, but she felt those clothes were dirty, only meant to be worn indoors, and wanted to change into her finer clothes(jeans+booties). First she wore this. Then she changed again because her husband suggested she wore something else.

I imagined this photograph to have some sort of an old-world charm to it. A woman standing on the front lawn of her English home, wearing vintage clothes, awkwardly posing. This was close but not quite it.
