I know I spammed last week like a mad maniac on Instagram and managed to make a few people a little envious of my trip, and here are some more images. And since I cannot remember the last time I've ever uploaded an entire album dedicated to a party or trip or whatever on Facebook, I make sure I share the ones that don't make it to instagram (and the ones that did as well) in this space. All these images are taken either by mom or myself and a majority are from my phone, a few others from mom's digital camera and a couple from our DSLR.
Last week was a pretty good one. Mom and myself went on a little trip to Goa, which most of you might already know, thanks to the power on Instagram. I've been to Goa countless times and for many different occasions as well. But the thing I've noticed about a lot of people my age, or even those who belong to the same decade as I do, they all believe Goa is a place to go wild and crazy, behaviorally and as well as when it comes to dressing up!
So many people believe that you can wear anything in Goa. No one will care. I myself used to say I was only comfortable wearing a two-piece bathing suit in Goa, as compared to any other place in this country. While you might have the freedom to wear what you want to in Goa, there needs to be a bit of caution as well. When I went to the beach, I saw scores of women dressed in the most atrocious attires, and no, I don't mean skimpy, but completely irrelevant to what one usually wears to a beach. While I'm not saying every woman has to be in a bathing suit, there has to be a line drawn, and garments like leather, skinny jeans, etc are just bad bad choices! I even spotted a girl wearing a pretty skater dress, which again was so out of place at the beach. And let's not forget the boys. Men, if you're reading, please, boxers are not swimwear. In fact they should not be seen! Please keep them under your pants. If you need to wear shorts, you can buy shorts. They're not too hard to find!
Women have always been strong literary characters. Women generally possess a lot more dimensions as compared to male characters and is usually a writer's dream, because from their basic description from facial features to the clothes might choose to wear for a particular occasion, to reactions during tense moments, there is so much scope to dramatize and play these things up and that makes a book interesting and fun to read.
In fact if I had to name my top five female protagonists, I would say Nancy Drew; because solving mysteries and crimes is always so bad-ass, Jane Eyre; a modern day feminist with her strong values and principles, Hermione Granger; while many argue she wasn't a main character, she was vital and the brains of the group, Jessica Wakefield; I must confess I was a Sweet Valley High fan and appreciated Jess's vain and cool approach to men and school and she was probably the original mean girl and lastly a tie between Anna Karenina and Catherine Earnshaw; both of who lived in different times but were remarkable woman, each in their own way.
How I landed under the sea-link for a quick outfit shoot is pretty random. I was in the area to visit the passport office, and I decided to kill two birds with one stone and get a new post ready instead of slacking off. So while I thought Worli Seaface which is cliched, Patrick suggested Worli Village. So we arrived after my work was done, just before noon and noticed it was low tide. So we both decided to make our way to the bottom of it, because I know everyone in the city has traveled via the Sea Link but really how many have literally been under it?
