Anokhi in Chennai - A Review

So after checking out Sarangi and Amethyst we stopped by Anokhi at Chamiers Road. Heard about this place from Anju, and it's a pretty shop filled with interesting ethnic stuff. I especially liked the bed sheets, quilts and curtains that had these really pretty Indian motifs all over. Everything looked quite nice and colourful... with a sunny feel to it. The pricing is decent too, not like some of those show off boutiques.
The entrance...
Some furniture... I think the nearby store is a furniture shop. 
Another view of the entrance...
The Anokhi symbol, rather cute... they even have these as dress hanger knobs in the trial room.
A huge mirror...
Kids clothes and cushions... see that Anokhi symbol knob I was talking about, a little girls dress is hanging from it.
The drapery, bed covers, and table cloth...
Pretty quilts all rolled up...
The photographer... a self portrait.

Anokhi is a neat place to pick up some cute ethnic stuff, you're bound to find something that appeals to you... you'll even end up buying things you don't really need, because the stuff they have looks happy and summery.

Yeah, it's okay... not overpriced like other boutiques. A table cloth that I bought was 850 rupees and a bag my sister picked up was close to 700 rupees.

December 2016 and January 2017

The last few months of 2016 were crazy in so many ways. First there was the money issue (when the higher denomination notes lost their value overnight) which created a mess of economic proportions. The insane queues at banks and ATM's and all the scrambling that was happening to make sense of it all, made November quite memorable.  Around the same time, Trump came out victorious which I thought was pretty hilarious... a sort of validation that people are the same everywhere, based on who we elected here.  Anyway, after the chaos of November, December came with her own brand of drama. I heard of Cyclone Nada, but I was busy in Nagercoil then enjoying a birthday party...Even that was fun, surprising the birthday girl who did not know that I was at the airport with dad. She walks up and down and I'm hiding behind the newspaper pretending to read it, then I see Manoj by her side, and they finally come out and she is hugging my dad and after that I walk up behind her and tap her on t…

Padua and Venice 2015

So the last travel post was about Turin, after which we drove all the way to Padua and after roaming around at night, eating ice cream  we came back to Tulip Inn, our hotel in Padua. After the complimentary breakfast, we set out to visit San Antonio's shrine, the shrine where the tomb of St. Antony is located. We celebrated mass in an adjoining chapel there,  We weren't allowed to take pictures in the main shrine, but I surreptitiously managed to take this one. After walking around and praying in this huge church, we then went to the shrine shop. Among all the places we visited, the stuff I've seen at the Padua shrine shop, is really good. One of the best places to shop for souvenirs, everything is so pretty and well made. I had visited Padua in 2013 with Antonio and Nameeta, and Antonio picked up a really cool looking black ring with the Our Father inscribed on it in Latin...
He rarely wears it, so I started wearing it...
