I am crazy about bangles. I love wearing bangles they make my hands look so beautiful. I have a good collection of bangles (almost 600) and I keep adding to it, it’s just fun to collect them. I love glass ones and those made of fibre, which are hand-painted, stone studded and colourful and make that cling and clang noise when you move.
I like mixing my bangles, piling them on my wrists, so I wear as many as I can get away with at one time. I always like to where them with a pop of different colours. I have almost all the colours of bangles -pistachio green, candy pink, mulberry purple, majestic red, peacock blue.
I feel sometimes blessed to be living in a city (Hyderabad) which has world famous bangle bazaar or the ‘Laad Bazar’ located in the branch roads of Charminar. Once a 3months I make sure to plan a trip to this market to load my bangle stand with new varieties of bangles.
I love the look of stacked bangles how they clank against the laptop while I am writing or to the utensils and cooking range in kitchen. I actually don’t need any reason to buy them as most of the people I know (read women) buy bangles only on occasions. For me life is a big occasion and I believe in staying happy each minute so why don’t make it happy by wearing bangles.
Wearing the choora has been my fantasy since a teenager. It has definitely a big connection with my love for bangles. The set of these red, maroon, off-white colored bangles signifies prosperity and fertility. The red and white bangles with the graceful white stones give a stunning look to hands. As I am a bit of a traditionalist when it comes to traditions, I will follow the rule of not removing these bangles before 40 days of the wedding and these are a symbol of a married woman; I would definitely wear them as long as I wish to.
Bangles are collectibles without limit, no age restrictions or body pre-requisites apply. Don’t you love that? And the sound. I like the clicking and clacking, the mix of surfaces jostling and making music together. Which bangles are your favourites? Truthfully, I found it hard to chose and it took me forever to narrow it down this far. There is only one rule with bangles; the more the merrier.

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.
