Tell us about your versatile knowledge in culture? Places you’ve been/lived that influenced your life?
Being of mixed parentage – Anglo-Indian, Chinese, Parsi and English; I have been exposed to different cultures while growing up within my family itself and that has given me a wider perspective of different cultures from a very young age. The Anglo-Indian culture being so different from the Chinese and Parsi culture, made me develop a greater tolerance and understanding of varied communities.
Though I have lived in Mumbai, India most of my life I have also lived in London, Singapore for a few years also and travelled all over the globe , so that has shaped me into an Indian with a vast global exposure and outlook. Out of all the places I have travelled, the ones that have influenced me the most are Barcelona for it’s rich culture, splendid architecture, delish Spanish food, and lively spirit …Amsterdam for it’s beautiful quality of life, beautiful warm people and New York for being the city of dreams, filled with such a non-stop vibrant spirit and making me feel like life has endless possibilities. I could see myself settling down in either Amsterdam or New York in the future.
Did you go to school? What’d you study?
I went to both school and college and I’m a First Class Distinction, Business Management Student with a specialisation in International Marketing.
Has fashion always been a passion of yours?
“I’ve been having a passionate love affair with fashion ever since I can remember and I believe true love lasts a lifetime”
Yes my love for fashion is unparalled and putting looks together with passion and utmost eye for detail has been my thin g ever since I can remember.
“I believe that fashion is not merely about what you wear, but more about how you wear it..It’s more than putting together outfits and creating different looks, it’s an expression of one’s identity, creating a new exterior layer of one’s demeanour..I live it..breathe it..express it”
You describe yourself as a global citizen, is an important trait of yours?
Yes being a Global Citizen is an important trait to me.
Today, the forces of global engagement are helping people identify themselves as global citizens who have a sense of belonging to a world community. This growing global identity in large part is made possible by the forces of modern information, communications and transportation technologies. In increasing ways these technologies are strengthening our ability to connect to the rest of the world—through the Internet; through participation in the global economy; through the ways in which world-wide environmental factors play havoc with our lives; through the empathy we feel when we see pictures of humanitarian disasters in other countries; or through the ease with which we can travel and visit other parts of the world.
As a result of living in a globalized world, we understand that we have an added layer of responsibility; we also are responsible for being members of a world-wide community of people who share the same global identity that we have. As a Global Citizen the community values that I hold in utmost importance include human rights, environmental protection, religious pluralism, gender equity, sustainable worldwide economic growth, poverty alleviation, and prevention of conflicts between countries, elimination of weapons of mass destruction, humanitarian assistance and preservation of cultural diversity.
A piece of clothing you wear way too much?
High-waist pencil skirts, as they totally flatter my tiny waist and accentuate my curves.
Explain the “TT Family section of your blog?
I am of mixed parentage – Anglo-Indian, Chinese, Parsi and English; my Dad’s mom was English married to my granddad who was Anglo-Indian and my Mum’s mother was Chinese married to my granddad who was Parsi. So I’m total cocktail. Growing up in India I was much closer to my Dad’s mom as she lived with us for a while and would visit my mom’s mother who lived in Singapore on family vacations.

Also with regard to beauty tips, I hope that they find them useful, informative and educative. I seek to offer my readers some real girl sensibilities on fashion and beauty, travel and lifestyle that they can adapt to their lives.
‘Be Fearless in the Pursuit of what sets your soul on Fire’
Something your readers would be surprised to hear about you?
That after I started dressing up and dolling up for a living, I find it tedious to dress up in my personal life and would rather go the comfort dressing route when I’m not shooting for my blog.
