I was in Class XII and about to sit for my boards when my dad one day asked me what I wanted to study or do after passing out of school. I was a confused teenager and my answer to him was “I don’t know yet. What do you suggest”? He told me, “I can only suggest but it is your life and you should be able to take your own decisions. I will support you in whatever you do”. I took the decision of taking up History in college and then I moved to Delhi for two years to do my Masters in Social Work. Everyone told me to stay in Delhi because the city promised better opportunities but I took the decision to go back to my home town. In Kolkata, I started working in the development sector. After a while, I decided to do something different and became an instructional designer and then I took up a job in a bank. After working for nearly three years in the bank, I suddenly got inspired to start a blog and now, another identity that I have apart from being a working professional is that of a beauty and lifestyle blogger. Yes, my life has been one hell of a ride till now. I’ve never conformed to rules and stereotypes. I’ve had ups and downs, super highs and some really low lows but through it all, I’ve always tried to be strong, independent and true to myself. And I am proud of that.
Why am I talking about my life in a handbag post? Because it resonates so well with Play The Life Game, Baggit, India’s leading bag and accessories brand’s Spring Summer 2016 campaign. Encapsulating the concept of ‘Freedom of Expression‘, the campaign captures the ethos and attitude of contemporary Indian women who are living life on their own terms and are making choices that reflect their view of the world today. “Baggit is born for fashion and the new spring summer range doesn’t restrict you by the bounds of ‘occasions’. The versatile collection lets you express yourself with unbridled freedom without stereotyping you in a particular role. Be you. And enjoy it … with confidence.”
