A Sabbatical that changed my Life - Transformation Journey June 26, 2016 08:54 9 Comments

Episode 2: Transformation Journey from “Program Head@NIIT” to “Head of Everything@anokherang”

If you want to read our story from the beginning then you should read through the first episode as well “Episode 1 – New Beginnings.

So it’s wonderful that you decide “You want to leave the old behind & make new beginnings” but seriously how do you know what to do, where to start and how to make a new beginning?

In such moments you fall back on Shahrukh Khan’s advice to his little brother Hrithik Roshan in Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham..."Zindagi mein agar kuch banna ho, kuch haasil karna ho, kuch jeetna ho ... toh hamesha apne dil ki suno"...and what I did next was exactly that...I listened to my heart and what I always wanted to do...something creative...something to do with colors...something to make people around me smile...something to make people around me Just Be Themselves...and so anokherang was born with a mission to help everyone to Just Be Yourself !

My journey kicked off with the transformation from “Program Head@NIIT” to “Head of Everything@anokherang”. This transformation had no well defined blueprint...no well laid out process to ensure success...every day...every moment was a discover...learn...adapt iteration with no backlogs !

So what changed for me, my office and workstation:

My white board:

My Daily Stand-ups:

My Peer reviews:

My Onsite visits:

 

Phew – quite a change I must say from:

1. The centrally air-conditioned office and cubicles of NIIT Technologies - my home away from home for more than 15 years, to the air cooled shop/workshop/lunch room/meeting room all in one hall @anokherang

2. The corridors of NIIT Technologies & British Airways to the streets and bylanes of Gandhinagar, Chandni Chowk, Bapu Bazaar, Chickpet etc. etc. in search of the inspiring print and fabric to use in the next anokherang best seller design.

3. The colleagues at NIIT Technologies to the Shopwalas, Tailors, Helpers, Dyewalas, Drycleaners and the list goes on and on and on who are now part and parcel of my work life !

    Definitely a BIG change but a very welcome change and all in good cause to help ensure we take the stress out of shopping from the lives of our lovely, beautiful and most endearing shoppers at anokherang and make them look ever more and more stunning and gorgeous !

    Signing off for now...till next time when we talk more on our “First Online Sale” & “First Positive Customer Review” of anokherang in the next episode:

    A Sabbatical that changed my Life - New Beginnings May 5, 2016 18:07 7 Comments

    Episode 1 – New Beginnings

    Sabbatical [səˈbatɪk(ə)l/Submit] – noun – a period of paid leave granted to a university teacher for study or travel, traditionally one year for every seven years worked. "she's away on sabbatical"

    I was not a teacher and not teaching at a university so why would I be granted a sabbatical and that also a paid one by my company?

    [Although frankly speaking, mentioning who I worked for in front of anyone almost invariably always resulted in the same reaction “Oh NiT...which center do you teach in beta?”...No...No...No...For god sakes NO!!!...I work for NIIT Technologies the software arm and not NIIT Ltd. the training arm...]

    And that was my way of walking away from the suggestion that I should go on a sabbatical and my first reaction when I had looked up the word which would change my life forever!

    After all I was a typical work addict who believed that I working more and more and more would ultimately result in solving the problems existing in the society today, uplift women and solve the world’s hunger problem.

    [Sounds familiar doesn’t it ...seen a beauty pageant recently...]

    Really – who was I kidding?

    Aha “kidding” reminds me of “kid” = my son who was the primary reason I agreed to going on a sabbatical as I was repeatedly told “spend time with him when he needs you and not the time when you need him and he need his girlfriends”.

    When you have time-off, you are idle and have time to think and when you have time to think...

    [No...No...No...“An idle mind is not a devil’s workshop” but “An unoccupied mind is like an innovations workshop...a plethora of ideas, thoughts, opportunities, almost like a kaleidoscope”...]

    You see the world in a different light as you have left the grind of the daily routine behind!  

    So what are the TOP 4 things this seeing the world in a different light really teach me?

    [Hey...why not 3 or 5 or 10 things...as those are really the numbers which make sense when you have to speak about something profound like “what are top 3 fears you have?”...”where do you see yourselves 5 years from now”...”name 10 words starting with the letter A”...and so on and so forth...now you know why I was taught 4 things ]

    Frankly nothing new and nothing we have not been told hundreds of times by a lot of people who claim to be much more intelligent and saner people than me:

    1. Work can never be more important than your Life and those you Love in your Life – sounds familiar doesn’t it and so very true once you start to swear by it and practice it!

    2. To see the big picture (ahem...not “Sholay” but perhaps God’s grand design for your life) you have to break your daily routine, free your mind and start to fully observe what’s happening around you and once you do that, that’s when you start to see the real you emerging out of the smoke like magic!

    3. Frankly I am too set in the clichéd template to think other than Top 3, 5 or 10 but still wanted to say Top 4 although there were really only Top 3 things and I had to write this as the third one otherwise the story wouldn’t have flowed on from the next point to what I had to say onwards!

    4. You have to leave the old behind to make new beginnings – yeah big deal...everyone says that but do you know how difficult it is to break away from something you have been doing all your adult life ...your comfort zone...I was shit scared and felt “I have spent 16 years in IT...how can I stop doing that and start anokherang”...but frankly till you do it you will never know how easy or difficult it is – right?

    More on new beginnings and the genesis of anokherang in the next episode:

    Episode 2: From Program Head@NIIT to Head of Everything@anokherang”...

    Floral Skirts, Dresses & Shorts ideas to stand out in style ! April 9, 2016 14:43

    Be sure to wear some flowers on your clothes this summer. Wish we could wear fresh ones which could beat the summer heat. But no worries, we have something that works as good and they are prints that look as fresh as well!

    Yes, the Floral Print trend is still there for Spring Summer 2016 and that is no big surprise, we don’t think it was, or ever will go away. After all, in this heat we do need some relief...and what better than bright Florals.

    Floral Prints this season are either super big and not crowded or tiny and understated. Pick your type and roll with it, although, let’s get real here...if you love clashing floral prints and wearing crowded garden on your outfit (we know we love that as well), nothing wrong with it, right?

    The Evergreen Skirts !

    Wear them long, wear them short or wear them super short. Team it with a long top or short top, contrasting or florals – everything works...the most important thing is your comfort factor.

       

    Do checkout anokherang's Skirt collection available on our store's Funky Skirts Collection

    Palazzo pants for women first became a popular trend in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The style was reminiscent of the wide-legged cuffed trousers worn by some women fond of avant-garde fashions in the 1930s and 1940s, particularly actresses such as Katharine Hepburn, Greta Garbo and Marlene Dietrich.

    Salwar Suit trends over the years - from Anarkalis to Anarkalis August 30, 2015 13:29 1 Comment


    The 1960's - Anarkalis to Hug-Me Suits...

    The begining of the 1960's saw Madhubala dancing in the famous Anarkali style. Indian women found this more comfortable shift in style from sarees as it resembled the sarees & lehengas. The mid-60s till late 60's saw the hug-me suits coming into fashion - Remember actress Sadhana in the hug-me sleeveless churidar kurta in Yash Chopra’s film “Waqt” in 1965. The style suited more on women with thin and curvaceous body.

    The 1970s - Retro and Disco...

    The bell-bottoms invaded the ‘70s, the kurtis were longer than the shirts but shorter than the traditional kameez. The prints were bold - the big floral and tie n’ dye prints. The dupattas became scarves tied around the neck. The west was influenced by us too - the famous hippie look of the "Hare Rama Hare Krishna". The 70s salwar-kameez was indeed the most fashionable decade of them all.

    The 1980s - Rediscovering Phase...

    This was the decade of discovering of the salwar kameez. We saw salwaar kameez in various avatars - Early 80s saw them as sarees in a nutshell as the handloom weaves were modified to provide a suitable dupatta. Late 80's we saw the puffed sleeves irrespective of the length of the sleeves - short or long.

    The 1990s - The Classic and Elegant...

    90s saw the trend going back to traditional but with a difference. It was more classic and elegant. 90's was influenced by the laces, pastel shades and sheer fabrics. The style was more knee-length kurtas with either pants or churidaars.

    The 2000s - Fusion is the way to go...

    This decade, we saw different fashion trends. The fits became more feminine , the necklines plunged, the prints became more subtle, the embroidery - thread and zari became more prominent. The Anarkalis came back into fashion in different lengths . Throughout the 2000s we saw the length of the kurtas varying from super short to long. Same can be said about the salwars - the trends saw them going from patialas - the famous Rani look in "Bunty Bubly" to the Deepika Podukone Culotte look in "Piku"
