The Paradise Of Breeze – HAWA MAHAL

hawa-mahal-1 (1)

Extend all your senses and hark my utterance
by the end,
you will come to know about my occurrence

Existing since 1799
216 years, yet I am in line

hawamahal B&W

I embrace the Pink heart
and embellish few times,

Dignified by ‘Maharaja Sawai Pratap’
delineated by ‘Lal Chand Ustad’ and Shines

My castle’s structure is akin to Lord Krishna’s crown,
my skin is actually red and pink but some think it’s brown

hawamahal brown

The cool wind blows and the royal women could observe the festivals through my ‘Jharokas’ without being seen,
that is the reason why I came into existence and gleam

I am emblematic of the Pink-city
yet enigmatic,
many come here some are genuine while some are dramatic 

My fragrance is immanent,
I dwell in the town having loads of ornament

hawamahal colors

Witnessed the city change and bustling crowd,
because of that my dignity and whoever lives in the city feels proud

They call me “THE PARADISE OF BREEZE”
appraise or observe spatial,
I am the “HAWA MAHAL”
come, sight and freeze

The collections showcased off beat color combinations and clearly a lot of experimentation was done with the outfits. The skirts, maxies, blouses were definitely a delight to watch.  The designers also displayed a concept ‘Monochrome’ which defines one color or the shades of one color in the show.

The most intriguing collection that was seen on the ramp was ‘The Post Apocalyptic Bride’ by Pooja Verma that focused on post-apocalyptic fashion using materials that remain behind even when everything else decays. The collection was impressive given that it was created out of nothing and the creativity and imagination of the designer was beyond beautiful and eccentric.

The designers also portrayed the look of a hunter man in the wasteland with the  concept ” Gypsy” which showcased Junglee and Raw Look.

Apart from depicting the designer clothes based on various themes , there was a round which showcased attractive “Jewelry” by famous designers.

8 Promises You Make To Your Mothers But Never Keep

As you all know, it’s mother’s day tomorrow. While you are all still wondering what to gift your lovely mother, just go through the things that you probably plan to gift her everyday, but fail 😉

1. To Keep Your Room & Cupboard Clean

A promise that you make to her every time she is mad at you and scolding you and even saying things like ‘Keep your cupboard closed or rats will eat them up’.

room clean

2. To put the phone away while eating

Every time she shows you an evil eye when you are desperately texting while having your meal, you put your phone away just to make her happy. And pick it up once she is out of sight 😉

phone

3. To call them everyday (If you are living away from the house)

“Yes mom, I will obviously call you every day now”
<watching sitcom for the entire day>

maa ka phone

4. To help them in the kitchen

Every single time, you watch her continuously working in the kitchen, you promise yourself that you will now be helping her cook, clean and do every little thing in the kitchen that she needs you for. After a couple of days, you get too lazy and basically fail :p

5. To value money and spend wisely

Whenever you come home with a dozen of shopping bags filled with things which you don’t need or you end up now knowing where you spent your last month’s budget, your mom is the one who tells you that money doesn’t grow on trees. You decide to save money and be more careful, and next day find yourself clubbing at an expensive club or drooling on the online shopping offers :p

6. To avoid hogging junk food all the time

Need we say more ?

pizza

7. To come back home on time

Be it from work or late night parties, your mom’s the one who watched the clock and waits till you get back home.

8. To not skip meals

No matter what crisis is going on in the world, your mom’s biggest crisis and worry will always be your diet. Even if you’re going for the most important interview of your life, your mom’s first question after it might be ‘Kuch khaya, or were you hungry the entire day?’

skip meals

Despite not being able to keep your promises, your mom knows that you still love her and she loves you selflessly and almost without expecting anything in return. So how about gifting her these little precious moments this Mother’s Day ? 🙂
