A journey of a thousand miles begins with a fabulous pair of shoes.

As one who needs to travel quite often it surely is quite tiring. Sometimes the best I do is just stop, breathe and focus on the positive. And if that doesn’t work, I simply try a new pair of shoes. That’s when I feel cosy in my mind and feet.

Many people think shoes are unimportant, but the real proof of an elegant person is what is on his feet. I am one who firmly believes that a man with good shoes is never ugly.

I love trying out different shoes as per the occasion. Some call me a certified shoe addict because I think there is always room for one more pair.

When it comes to shoes, a style that never goes out of style for me is the Brogues. Originating in Ireland over 500 years ago, it has always been my smart shoe of choice, being a timeless shoe full of style and history. So let’s know a bit more about it.

It's only fair to share...

baaya-design-header

The hanging retort shaped nests of the Ploceus philippinus hanging on the branches of the large thorny tree in our courtyard used to fascinate me as a child. I used to keep staring at these nests from my bedroom window and wonder how the baaya weaver birds would weave these wonderful creations from leaves.

The design of these nests intrigues me still and I am marvelled by the thoughts of how traditionally over the centuries, the baaya has been able to secure the intricate design of their homes that they build.

 Exactly the way I am mesmerised whenever I see this weaver bird nest, every visit to the Palladium or to the St. Regis Hotel at Lower Parel leaves me fascinated at the sight of a shop nestled in the ground floor of the building just adjacent to the towering St. Regis gate. The name always attracted my attention, which says, Baaya – where design meets tradition.
