Kaiwyur, my diving instructor. He is 14 and studies in std 9. He has been #swimming since he was 3. I want to #dive like him when I grow up. This might look simple but it's actually difficult and takes practice. If you are unable to align you entire body vertically to the pool while diving, you fall flat like a log in water and end up getting hurt :p

Upcycled an old kurta in to a shrug and happy with how it looks. Little story about this kurta:
During my diploma days (4th Sem) at the National Institute of Design I made friends with the loveliest bunch from textile design department.
If you have friends in the textile department while at #NID, you are going to get the best deals with clothes, they know where to source the fabric from and best places to get them stitched. So I got this fabric from Sanskruti, we went for the cut pieces lot, as students one tries to save every single penny. I got this stitchted at "Amrapali Tailor" near Ellis Bridge #Ahmedabad. Take a peek in the wardrobe of any old NID faculty/Alumni (Aditi Ranjan and such.) and you would get atleast one dress made at his shop. Legend has it that, the master tailor, didn't take mesuresments for your piece and still would stitch the best fitting cloths. Loved this kurta and wore it so many times but the body changes in seven years, it stopped fitting me anymore and I had a hard time letting it go. I am happy that I can wear this again. I am a sucker for nostalgia and all things old.

I am posting about the house museum by Dr. Tejas Naik and his wife Payal Naik in my Instagram stories. This is only a small fraction of their collection that you can see here. I visited his house 2 weeks back with 4 friends. Every visitor is not only welcomed but also stuffed with food literally and get to see this amazing collection from cameras to wooden carvings to ink pots, rocks, antics, maps, coins and even fossils. I am inspired beyond words by this place and people who make this. Get in touch with me if you wish to see this place.

Dr. Tejas showing us his collection. He is a brilliant storyteller and watch how he explain everything with great detail.

Made this neck piece using the Zari bit of scrapped fabric, some beads, tassels and chain.

Here's a tutorial on how to upgrade a plain old earring with beads. Swip left for the step-by-step tutorial.
P. S. Couldn't work on any jewelry pieces last week so sharing an old tutorial from my personal blog. IG album feature comes quite handy in sharing #DIY #tutorials.

Featured in Conde Nast India Make In India. The issue came earlier this year but I finish reading it only recently. Quite an interesting collection of stories to know what the millennials of India are up-to.

Sunday cooking: Fish curry and fish bhujiya. Fried tiny fishes in mustard oil with garlic-mustard paste. These crunchy fishes are my favorite. Our fish vendor rarely get these though.
