Magic Make-up

While everyone makes a cream, a gel
A miracle that promises you
Those fine lines and wrinkles
Will vanish with recurrent use
How I wish they would instead
Discover a formula that could
Give you crow’s feet from smiling
And shiny skin from being healthy
How I wish the love handles could be
Loved to hug and the men they
Would not seek bags of bones
That make up companies
Showed rosy cheeks in advertisements
And real happy women
Not sulky pouts dead eyes
Perfectly kohled but empty
I wish to see real people
Not just mannequins impossible
Whom we see and dread the scales
But who are found in
Asylums and rehab

Mooning over

We all have heard of the man who wants to get you the moon. I would settle for one who could get me the moon earrings or the Chandbaali earrings.

Chand means the moon in Hindi and baala or baali means ring or earring so in essence Chandbaali means the Moon Earrings.

These earrings which have been around since the Mughal era are now making a sensational come-back and every woman wants to own and flaunt a pair.

It is believed that Noor Jahan (the only Mughal Empress to have coinage struck in her name) was the one who christened the Chandbaalis. Her love for these earrings was so strong that she was believed to have owned several exquisite pairs and wore them to her dying day.

The second most popular royals were the wives of the Nizams of Hyderabad who adorned their Chandbaalis with pearls and uncut diamonds.

Today Chandbaalis come in a host of metals, stones, pearls in various shapes, sizes,  and prices and can be paired with multiple ensembles instantly upping the glam quotient.

Though they have been a trend in Hyderabad for quite some time now, they have been popularized by the tinsel town and almost every actress has been spotted wearing one.

Well what are you still mooning over, get yourself a pair!

The Magic of the Sun

These pictures were randomly taken from my balcony (on the 8th floor).

In a crowded place like India it is a privilege to be able to live in an apartment which has a balcony facing a vast open space.

My home overlooks one of the main train stations and sometimes the visions are magical.

 

These were taken from a small lane. The Sun seems like a huge balloon, one that I would love to chase across all magical lands.
