The GreenBo revolution

I am just back from Africa. I went to Ghana, kenya and Zambia. These places are the luxury of space and the time we fast moving city residents seem to be having lesser and lesser of. I went to some uber rich and some decently working class individual's home.. and whast struck me most if their gardens. One of the ladies could run a vegetable market of her own with all her produce in her backyard. So i decided to start planting some small plants when i get back.

I have been back for 2 days now. And I pondered really hard. So I have 1/2 a feet window sill which is literally thanks to the boxed grill all around my windows. Some of which are used to hang the clothes dry. Leaving me with just a little space to grow maybe 6- 7 plants.

And then I came around this website. Its called GreenBo! They make this space friendly pots. On first look they look like those cheap chinese plasticware that you think is going to brake once it falls of the sil its delicately standing on. But then you read all these testimonials and people who are so happy with the product. And how it brings about greenery for people living in urban spaces. I am happy ordering mine online. Check out these cute colourful pieces promoting a greener urban space of the future.

Bare Essentials v/s Accessorize

My aunt and her children recently came back from the United kingdom. They were away on holiday. Whne they came back I asked her if she liked it there ? she said it was okay ! I probed her to talk, as clearly she had a very strong opinion - for she liked it Okay. Not too good or excellent or too bad or horrible.

She pointed out from Channel to dior to zara to Prime Ark each one sells the same long black leggings for example in different fabrics and qualities. But in the end they make the person look the same. She believes each one look generic. As compared to india - where ready made clothes are no biggie, so each one has their unique style. People dont look like each other's clones.

So the brighter side of this whole point she was trying to make was
1. how unique each one looks
2. because we have unique clothes we do not need to stress out about the accessories to make a dress look different
3. Even jewellery has starting to become common, and hence the make-up and all the stress about being immaculate.

Man - is it stressful to dress up ? Or will india never come up from its dress-down code that it has been following for years ? only time will tell.
