Enlivening tired government officials residential housing, is this street art murals in Lodhi colony , Delhi, which reflects the fun, unpretentious vibe. Settle in around near one of the graffiti walls , take out your camera, and the street children would come hovering around you to see what's happening.
This engaging exhibit of the Minnie mouse hairband, created so much confusion, that for a minute it was difficult for the photographer to figure out what was the agenda of the shoot ? The graffiti, me , or the children . It was a veritable zoo, with these children asking me to lend this hairband, which obviously belonged to my daughter, and as chance would have it, she accompanied me for this shoot for the first time. From window frowns, to raised brows to casting sidelong glances, she gave me indicators of heat in all possible ways from the vicinity of our car, as one of the boys posed along with me wearing
my my daughter's headband.
Clearly as you may see , he was having a ball. From distracting us, to murmuring occasional nonsensical Bollywood numbers, he tried everything to let this shoot never happen . Look he even photobombed me !! All he wanted was this headband, for peace to prevail. It was a fun merger of fashion with the actual street world, which made me realise that fashion is about the common people. And its the common people who make fashion uncommon.
He was glad to accept my offer for letting me wear that headband on his greased hair. After his small rendezvous of being Minnie mouse , he returned to being human after this brief taste of fashion.
I think he turned out to be Oprah for me to make me understand that the fashion Gods lies in the smallest of things like a headband. It re-iterated my belief that quirky accessories should be given a try while choosing an outfit, which work wonders like a green olive in Martini, shaken not stirred (007 style).
