Women and Shopping - Who Controls Whom ?

Hello. 

Did I tell you how I had planned to devour my first pay check after I resumed full time work from Aug?

My initial plan was to pledge my three months salary to visit either Morocco or Spain. But then I realized my will power is not as strong as I think it is. May be my savings would be just enough to finance the tickets but what about the lodging and trying local delicacies and shopping.

Hey, that’s when I rely on my equity investor, Sinha Ji, in good and bad times.

Somehow, my Libran’s balanced approach goes out of the window and take an auto ride when i see my card lazing around in my wallet and do no good for me materialistically. And oh so naturally I get succumbed to the lure of shopping to cherish my regained financial independence.

When you work for some 9 long years and then you take a break, you almost feel next to being an unqualified struggling bachelor with no influence on anything whatsoever, abla naari ekdum bechari.

Raaga Arts and Grameena Angadi - Ethnic Home Decor Shopping Destination in Jaya Nagar

Simple decor items like a lantern with a diya in it add a sparkle in your house.

Every house waits to get dressed up on the occasion of Diwali. No matter what is the theme of your home decor, Indian handicrafts, metal souvenirs, painting, terracotta artefacts, hanging lamps, lanterns statues always find a place to adore our living room space or rejuvenate balcony. 

Since, I stay in South Bangalore (outskirts) going to Commercial Street or MG Road is a bit too tiring and time consuming. In search of a good place to shop for festivals, last week, I got to visit two Indian Ethnic Handicraft stores. One is called Raaga Arts and the other is Grameena Angadi, both are in straight line in Jayanagar 4th T Block. 

For me it was a paradise for shopping for seasonal festival as well as for decor pieces to keep for lifetime. From Raaga Arts (Tamil Nadu based), if you move towards the right side of the store, half a mile away there is another store called Grameena Angadi (Kerala based), where you can find traditional silver, golden, earthen pots, jute lamp shades, handwoven sarees, cotton dress material and a variety of natural green products (edibles, organic food etc.) along with home decor items.
