I have always loved juttis since I was a kid, because they speak the traditional language in the most fashionable way. They totally uplift any outfit and add to your individual style. I have always worn them with Indian outfits as well as with fusions. I can never grow out of them.
Not sometimes but all the time, I really need in life is a pair of right shoes. No matter how comfortable I think your heels are, I need reliable flats or slipons. Jutti’s does that magic for me.
I can never say,”I have too many shoes!” I love adding new beauties to my collection and given how much time I spend surfing the internet, I often come across gorgeous shoes that make it to my #buylist every other day. I love adding some new style to my present wardrobe.
No matter what I have worn them on jeans/salwars/chudidars and also on pajamas. From school time to college to office, they have been there with me all the time. I remember buying my first pair at Lajpat Nagar market (while I was living in Delhi, followed by Janpath market to Sarojini Nagar to my locality market at Nanak Pura). In Hyderabad (after I shifted), there was amazing store called Zedds which had very few Jutti’s sourced from Punjab which was my place to buy them. They pulled off in 2005, and the handicraft melas (once a year) were my place to buy them and stock for till the next mela. In between I had shopped them at Delhi/Ahmedabad and Mumbai. Now I have no Jutti’s as I am eagerly waiting for the next mela to buy.
The embellishments and thread-work on them is so intricate and beautiful! They are like collections of stars at your feet of silk with gold sequins on sky. Jutti’s are LOVE.

I write a lot, which keeps me off the streets and out of trouble. There is always something to write about, always a new story to craft. Not writing, for me, is like trying to hold back a sneeze. Learning to write was the most powerful influence in my life. I can still remember the awe I felt when I realized I could put real words onto paper and tell out a story. From that first ‘a-ha’ moment I knew I wanted to write.
