A dear friend of mine asked me day-before yesterday, “What is the significance of Mahalaya?” While explaining her the significance of Mahalaya and Devipaksha, I got choked.

But being a… Read More Fashion Post | The Bengali Bride-Groom | Bengali Groom Fashion | Groom Fashion Ideas | Wedding Day Outfit for Groom | Look Post

A famous saying goes, “Bangali maanei cha-ar adda!” (If you are a Bengali, you have an affinity towards tea and gossip). And yes, with cha-we want… Read More Nykaa Matte To Last Liquid Lipstick | Product Review | Chai Swatch | Brown Skin | Dusky Skin
