Mother’s Day Special

She is a Popular TV Anchor and Celebrity Host. On mothers day she shared her warmy views.

Which is the most mischievous thing you ever did in your home . How was your mom reacted ?

I ran away from home at the age of 4! Mum was getting ready for a visit to the market and refused to take me with her. So, in rage, I scribble a note on the tissue with her lipstick (as seen in movies), took my doctor’s briefcase toyset and left the building. I thought I ran enough but apparently my little steps only managed to reach the back lane of the house. My mother was watching me from the balcony, and she didn’t look pleased. I was expecting her to call me back but she never did. So, I came back crying and asked for a hug.

what one thing u wish to do differently before being a mother .

Well, I’m already a mother now but patience is one virtue I promised myself I’d work towards as frustration and failure can easily dawn on a new mother.

What question you wish to ask from your mom ? ( Never get chance or enough confidence to ask )

We believe in open communication so I doubt there is much I wouldn’t know about. May be in jest we’d like to know who is her favourite child amongst us siblings!

Most precious moment of childhood with your mom.

My father gifted me a Nintendo gaming console and it was funny to see my mother playing with it more than I did! The way she would passionately try and rescue the princess made a priceless sight and she’d keep narrating Mario’s journey to the dungeon, creating suspense along the way and I’d be so engrossed in the game rooting for my mother that I wouldn’t even realise that I wasn’t playing!

Had you ever try to prank your mom ? How ?

It was the other way around mostly. She is quite the plotter! At Holi, I’d plan with my sisters on attacking her first thing. Instead, we’d wake up with coloured faces! We’d go to the bathroom to wash up and she’d be hiding there to push us into a tub full of coloured water. She was always steps ahead!

what is the best thing about being a mom .

Witnessing that naughty smile and surrendering to the tiny gripped hug! Bringing a life into this planet is quite miraculous. One can gloat over that for quite a while! Also, I get more compliments now than ever before! Haha! But seriously speaking, the fact that I’m shaping a personality and discovering human mind alongside is quite satisfying- inculcating values, teaching the basics, engaging curious minds is all very exciting!

What differences you see in 19ties and today’s mom .

Mompreneurs are common now but in the nineties, not many mothers were working. The balancing act between work and home is therefore more demanding. Nanny culture is also relatively new as back then joint families ensured extra helping hands.

What goal u want to achieve in next 10 years as a professional or personal?

Happiness is my only goal always. I feel everything falls into place when eternal bliss is your focus. In the next ten years I wish to be a better person- more calm and patient. Professionally, if my name and work can still get people excited, I’m sorted! I’m also a writer but may be an ‘Author’ tag would be a nice addition.

How your mom supported you in your profession?

I’m an anchor today entirely because of my mother’s encouragement. I had lost my father and was handling the family business when I saw a poster for a beauty pageant and decided to apply after a quick chat with my mother. Surprisingly, I got through and ended up in Mumbai! She helped me shop & prepare. The team that was shooting the pageant figured that I was quite confident during camera bytes and nudged me towards anchoring. A popular TV channel was looking for an anchor then for an international travel show and my mother paid for my ticket to Mumbai to audition and meet the team. I was selected and never looked back. Mum took over the family business while I flew to new pastures! Her sacrifices & guidance will always be the heart of my success. Even today, I travel the world for work while mum helps look after the baby. She truly is the wind beneath my wings!

As a mother how to do balance your professional and personal life.

The balancing act is hard for any mompreneur but if you put strategy in place, a lot can be achieved in a day! I believe it all boils down to planning and delegation. When I leave for a gig abroad and know I’d be gone for a few days; I ensure that his bare essentials are all in stock, his ready-to-wear sets are made along with matching bib and socks, nanny is well instructed and between my mum and mum-in-law, there is always extra hands on deck! My husband is pretty hands-on himself and I truly appreciate his support.

A mother struggles and juggles every day so effortlessly that she often forgets to focus on other things. With every passing day, the world is changing and so are the trends that affect a mother-child relationship. Today, just being a mother is not enough. You have to be your child’s best friend, sibling, therapist, literally everything.

You must be wondering why this is essential. Well in 2019, to maintain a transparent, healthy, and an effortless relationship is a challenge; however there is an opportunity as well. This Mother’s day, here are some tips that we’ve listed for our mothers:

Tech savvy is the new cool:

Being technically sound or having basic knowledge about the same will not only help you strengthen the bond with your child, but also help you learn something new. Learn how to click those selfies, do online shopping, watch programs on Netflix with your kids perhaps. Whilst monitoring your child’s activities on social media is fine, don’t make them feel uncomfortable about it. Motivate them when they exhibit their work on social media, tag them in those funny memes – keep it more engaging. The more relatable you are with today’s generation, the more they will open up to you.

Therapy is normal:

Let’s not get worked up when our kids want some ‘me-time’ or even if they ask or choose to see a therapist. Therapy is not always about a mental disorder. It is about letting out the feeling that is bothering them. And this certainly doesn’t mean you’ve failed as a mother. Listen to them, help them out, let them pour their heart out to you, understand them as an individual, not your child. That is when you’ll be their best therapist and help them overcome the situation.

Accept their authenticity:

Accept them for who they are and give them the freedom to be whoever they want to be. Let them be a tattoo artist, a stand-up comedian or even a mobile app designer. Respect their sexual preference and the identity they’re born with. Embrace it with love and encourage them to be who they want to be. Freedom starts at home.

Participate with them:

Participating with them in activities or hobbies that they love, will help you develop a better and friendlier relationship them. Draw and paint with them, enroll for dance classes together, go on a Yoga retreat, cook contemporary cuisine, travel with them, and grow together.

Demonstrate:

Kids do not learn what we say to them. They inculcate and do the things we do. Instead of teaching theoretically or asking them to Google about it, show them how something is supposed to be done. Show them how that healthy salad is made, how they should plan their investments, how to fold clothes. The more you demonstrate, the better they understand.

This Mother’s day, let’s take the bond forward from mere mother – child to Best Friends. We wish all you wonderful mothers, a very Happy Mother’s Day. Thank you for being you.

The Elegant piece by Versace

Greca Icon, perfect for those who aren’t afraid to dare. It is a brand new unique and totally modern rework of one of the quintessential Versace symbols – the iconic border pattern.

Immediately recognizable, its design is emphasized by a stylized Greca bezel, elongated to create curving lugs on either side. The profile of the rectangular case also curves, providing an ergonomic fit for the wrist. The case middle at 9 o’clock bears the Versace logo, also featured on the minimalist enamel dial.

The Stylist One by Versace

V-Twist, iconic, fun, unexpected and surprising. Versace V-Twist captures sophisticated femininity and timelessness.

The case middle bears the Versace lettering surrounding a Greca border. The dial is reminiscent of the leitmotif that is the logo and the Greca border, decorated with a 3D Medusa at 12 o’clock. A stylized version of the Greca is also embossed on the leather strap, embellished with two V and the Medusa on the loop.

Versace V-Twist is available in 8 styles.

The Classic touch by Ferragamo

F-80 Classic, the best-selling line from Salvatore Ferragamo Timepieces is renewed with this year’s colour: green, in a vibrant shade to highlight the luxurious athletic spirit. The steel case is slimmer and smaller than before, reflecting the latest style trends: perfectly balanced in size, the F-80 Classic fits the wrist perfectly, offering pure comfort. A sunray finish makes the dial brighter and more elegant, while the satin-polished metal surfaces reveal the painstaking precision behind its design.

The case back is embellished with an engraving of Palazzo Spini Feroni, the historic headquarters of the house in Florence. The karung leather strap is backed with rubber, mirroring Salvatore Ferragamo’s iconic flair for experimentation with materials and the outstanding leather work that is part of its heritage. The F-80 Classic also comes in all blue or all black and in a timeless champagne IP case with dark brown strap.

The Modish kind by Ferragamo

Gancini, the most iconic symbol from Salvatore Ferragamo, has evolved in the timepieces collection with a more contemporary twist, ever more exquisite and transforming the line into a must have of 2019. The case – available in two lady’s sizes: 22 and 34mm in diameter – is now slimmer, sleeker and more graceful. The case back is embellished with an engraving of Palazzo Spini Feroni, the historic headquarters of the house, in Florence.

The mother-of-pearl dial gives the watch a chic, feminine feel, while the burgundy cabochon crystal, set into the crown, lends it a touch of glamour. In the larger version, the Gancini has three diamond indexes to make it even more stylish. The karung leather bracelet comes in a range of vivid colours – flame red, caribbean blue and periwinkle – making it the perfect match for the palette of the Salvatore Ferragamo Spring/Summer 2019 runway show.

The Bold One by Versus

Versus Les Dock a fierce, rebellious and bold jewelry watch, is an instantly recognizable timepiece for the Versus Versace girls.

The watch’s design owes its distinction to the brand’s iconic and classic features – the case is adorned with two identical Versus logos, with the lettering taking the place of the indexes. Embellishing the bracelet are 3D Lion heads that alternate with metallic links and sit in the position of the lugs.

Whether completely in silver, rose gold with a dark blue dial, yellow gold with a black dial or in a hyper-modern two-tone steel – the five versions convey the unapologetic spirit of Versus Versace.
