I was never one of those kids who wouldn't eat unless there was cartoon playing on the TV. I didn't enjoy cartoons, but I did watch some like Tom & Jerry and Popeye because my friends couldn't stop talking about cartoons, so peer pressure and all that. I didn't want to be the odd one out.

I liked my books and by that I mean my Fairy Tales. I'm embarrassed to tell you the age till which I read them! So I am going to skip that detail. My train journeys introduced me to Tinkle and Archie's comics. I was in boarding school so every holiday, we travelled a lot..sometimes to some far off relatives places or on a family trip. Tinkles were my company then. I liked it even more because I wasn't really allowed to read them in school since they supposedly mess with your grammar.

These pair of shorts take me back to that time. They remind me of Shikari Shambu. The hunter who managed to trap animals by fluke and save people. You remember? I had always hoped that someday we would be able to see his face.

Good ol' days. 


  1. Mint is such a great color on you and I have a huge crush on your sandals.

  2. i love those shorts!! i was heavily into both cartoons and books.. i never got into reading comics much though..i did read a few bengali and english ones..

  3. I grew up on a steady diet of Archie Comics :D And you know, I've been fascinated by boarding school :) Back in the day, they seemed so cool and very 'Malory Towers' ish !

  4. You DO look like an adorably cute version of shikaari shombhu! With that smile and those glasses,you can charm any animal to prison. :-P

  5. I really love your bright colors and floral - coral and mint together are just divine!
    Chic on the Cheap

  11. So Cute you look. I second Soumi, you actually look like the cuter version of Shikari Shambu.
    Those glasses are speaking for itself (Loving them)
    I can never muster enough guts to wear bright and pretty lipsticks. Everytime I put on I think, its too much and wipe it off.
    Hopefully someday I will wear them.
