Shallow? Who? ... Me?!?!

3:50 PM

A friend of mine called me last night ... while I was indulging in some late night television. She needed some 'fake' quotes for her grad-school assignment on Luxury Brands! Of course she called ME! In her own words, "I don't know anyone else who is into brands more than you!" While on any other day I would take this as a compliment but I have a distinct feeling that it wasn't this time! Regardless of the fact that she was calling me for help!, she called me shallow! I love her and hence she is safe from any pain that could have been inflicted on her ... but wait-a-sec ... Hello!? Did she just say shallow? ... Who? ... Me?!??

Let's put Tanvi under the microscope (Yes! Again! It's my blog, who else do you think we will be talking about here?!). In my 120 posts, over the period of 14 months, we have learnt many things about me. Like, that I am judgmental, opinionated, maaayyy be politically-incorrect, sometimes stubborn, too honest for-my-own-good, sharp tongue and even seldom conceited! But hey! - Shallow is where I draw the line. I over-rule this objection! I am not shallow. 

I am amused by fashion. I like brands because they symbolize quality and luxury. I am aware of my surroundings which include politics as much as it does the 'it' bag from Chanel. And yes, may be in my world "I" does come before "U". Nonetheless, these are the choices I make for myself and not judge the world by them. This is the way I wish to lead my life and spend my money. However, I do not think less or more of anyone who follows opposite or same principles, respectively! I am not in the mood to explain who might be shallow in my eyes but it's definitely not me, people! I said the same words to my friend last night who I assume derived quotes out of it and said 'Good speech!" and hung up! Oh! well I'm glad I could help, I guess that's what shallow-people do in her world - Help! *wicked.grin* >

P.S. February - A month full of birthday! It's my cousin Ruchika's birthday today and I know she reads my blog regularly. I have wished her on every possible web-medium available so I thought, why not here too! Right? Happy Birthday, Ruchika! Have a great year ahead :o)

  3. Haha! Not Shallow. This is DEEP Tanvi. Sooo DEEP!!

    People have their own interpretations and judgments- and if we dwell on them, we might just start losing a lot of strands from the luscious lock of hair!

    Keep the fashion going, continue hunting the best brands and enjoy it all- it, too, like all the seriousness, responsibilities and challenges are a part of LIFE. Live it! (and those who judge, let them live...far far far away) :-p

  5. Funny ! And since I was there when the conversation took place, can I just say that neither did she mean anything nasty nor does your post has any ill-feel towards her. It was just a harmless banter that resulted in an excellent post. Tadaa!!

    Husband - Yeah! Thanks for clarifying it. I was only narrating a funny incident. She meant no harm. Was only teasing me. I was just using it to write some juicy post! ;)

  7. Mummyji and Tanvi - very cute...hehehe!

  8. Tanvi-remember Descartes? "I think therefore I am."

    The act of thinking about shallowness is contradictory to the state of shallowness.

  9. Meetu D - I do not think, therefore I am not?! :o)

  10. Quite the contrary, Tanvi! You think therefore you are not!
