Tanvi - You are quite active on Twitter and Facebook and your Blog, how do you find time to manage it all?
Honey - I humbly bow down to the Apple God himself, Steve Jobs for blessing us humble souls with the iPhone 4, Macbook Pro & iPad! I organize a few hours a day simply to research, Tweet, Facebook post & do all the Photoshop magic before blogging throughout the day. Its even possible that most days, sleep is elusive because it has to be sacrificed to feed the insatiable Gossip-hungry demons!
Tanvi - Hahaha! Okay that sounded like me! :) So which is your favorite Hindi movie of all time and why?
a) Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge: Sighs. Raj & Simran the perfect mates to each others soul falling in love on a Euro-trip but confessing love on good ol Bharat soil. Typical mushfest which cemented notions of a adorabaly good-looking desi boy who will serende me and buy me a cowbell. I'm patiently waiting Raj, signed your Simoney!
b) Rang De Basanti: Empowering message, Aamir Khan as a funjabi boy and lovely music by AR Rahman. I cried so much that I gave myself a migraine and went through two boxes of Kleenex. THATS how intense and brilliant the film was.
c) Hum Aapke Hai Kaun: This movie has set the bar of big Indian weddings for me which I haven't had the privilege of attending since I was a knee-high tot! But I believe that choreographed dances and a cute white little Pomerian will help me find a love in a shaadi!

In my 23 years, the one profound idea which has been quite pervasive is that what is good (right, working or proper) for someone else will not necessarily have the same affect on your own life. One may feel inadequate after looking at others' achievements however it is essential to remember that we have our own individual flow and rhythm in life. For me, what is most important is that you recognize your own 'thing' and go on that great journey to discover it, hone it and revel in it.
I'm quite the logophile so I love the whole notion behind people sharing their experiences, thoughts and ideas on the interwebs. There's something very cathartic in taking all which is buzzing on the inside and share it with everyone. I have blogs floating about on all the major platforms which have really helped shaped my voice and writing ability so I hope everyone embraces it at one point in their life, personally or professionally!
My second favorite artform after music for it allows you to literally see through another perspective. I'm always in awe of how the director takes the screenwriter's vision and breathes life into black and white. Film is such a beautiful medium which can really educate, entertain and escape an individual so profoundly.
I heart fashion- clothes, makeup everything! I'm quite the minimalist with my style who cannot wear heels (because I will trip and die) so I like to stick with a bright colour palette, light makeup and fierce hair! I believe fashion = comfort although a little pain can translate into an amazing outfit (sometimes). The key to good fashion, style and looking well-put together is knowing your bodyshape and what looks good on you!
