I hope you all are doing well. Hope you are staying at home, maintaining the required social distance and spending more time with your families. Here in India, we have been fortunate enough not to have seen the worse yet and my thoughts are with all those affected around the globe. Some of our major cities have been locked down and we are all in quarantine (which is not so hard for people like me who already stay at home most of the time). I meant to publish this last week but due to lots of renovation work at home, I couldn’t. I’m here with my weekly outfit post but along with that I would like to share my thoughts on an observation I made on social media.
Last week, I observed a number of influencers and content creators concerned about the kind of messages they have getting whenever they post new content. Many are labelled as insensitive or some even being mocked for spreading awareness. It is rather unfortunate that many people, who probably have nothing to do are launching these kinds of attacks on influencers who work hard to create fashion and beauty content. What people do not understand is that is our job and it’s what we do. There is nothing insensitive about it. Are these people attacking those from various businesses and multinational companies who’ve been directed to work from home?
I understand that we are all scared, mortified by everything that is happening around the world. I can’t even begin to imagine the pain of those who have already lost their loved ones to this illness and so many more who are uncertain of their future. But to target a certain group of people who are doing their job, working from home and bringing out content for others to watch or read is pretty malicious. Many of my favourite youtubers are bringing out multiple videos to make time in quarantine less boring for their viewers and I appreciate their efforts, because let me tell you blogging and vlogging requires lots of time and effort.
Follow the precautions
It is extremely important that we follow the guidelines set by WHO and our governments. Wash your hands regularly and thoroughly and maintain social distancing. We need to understand we can curb the spread of this virus to a great extent by doing our bit.
The human race has been through all kinds of calamities. I’m sure most of us were not ready for one so soon but now that it’s here we need to have faith in our healthcare workers and in God. There are various kinds of theories revolving regarding this pandemic- some kind of biological attack, some say it’s a way of nature to purify itself and so on. But whatever it is, a great tragedy has struck but we must stay optimistic and help those around us in whatever way we can.
All that said, let me tell you something about this outfit.
As many Indians would be aware that Dehradun is home to the Forest Research Institute of India which is a premier institution in the field of forestry research. Built over 450 hectares, with the outer Himalaya forming its back drop, the institute’s main building combines Greco-Roman and Colonial styles of architecture, with a plinth area of 2.5 hectares. I love how serene and beautiful this place is and have been a regular visitor with my family. So, when I realized I had not yet shared it on Chamber of beauty, it was yet another reason to visit the grounds and have a little photoshoot. By the way, these pictures were taken last year in winters. I slippped into a chic yet comfortable winter ensemble. Neutral brown coats are my favourite so I wore one of that. Accessorized my look with a burberry inspired scarf that went really well with the coat and added a pop of colour with my favourite red bag.
