MaxFreshMove with Mr. Perfect

What do you do while you drive daily to work in the slow moving traffic or while you occupy window seat on the bus or local train, counting the taller buildings than the number of green trees. When you jog or run in the park, with the ear phones so tightly plugged into your ears and the high tempo beats outstanding the silence.

Music and dance have always been rejuvenating and relaxes the mind and the body when you dance or sing, no matter how bad you're at it. Step 1, step 2... shake your hands and toes on the floor and never miss the beat.

Few years ago, my Telugu speaking friends introduced the songs from Aarya-2, Mr Perfect and Ringa Ringa, which have been huge hits of all times. No matter you watch a Telugu dance show or an orchestra at a wedding, people who don't understand the lyrics, dance at his tune.

I am blogging for #MaxFreshMove activity at Are you?

Shanka Pola Bangles

Shanka Pola Bangles are of "High" importance in the Hindu Bengali Wedding. They signify the marital status of a Bengali woman.

Shanka means Conch Shell and Pola means red coral. SHANKA bangles are beautifully carved and are available with gold designs. While, Pola, also pronounce, Paula, are the red corals bangles but due to the ban on the Coral species, the red plastic bangles are being used as substitute. Pola bangles are also available with gold designs.

These are the pair of Shanka Pola Bangles my friend bought all the way from Kolkata. The Shanka Pola Bangles are purchased from local shop and are made of plastic. They have the beautifully engraved peacock. Bengali jewelerry have intrinsic designs which draws everyone's attention.

Kolhapuri Thushi

 I was in Kolhapuri during VaraMahaLakshmi festival, which is celebrated in a great grandeur in South India. It is believed that you would never suffer from lack of wealth, or fame, when you worship the goddess with utmost devotion.I consider myself lucky to have visited the Goddess on this auspicious day. The moment you hear Kolhapur, the first thing which passes your mind are the elegant Kolhapuri chappals or footwear, followed by the traditional Thushi, traditional necklace worn by every Mararashtrian women.Thushi is mainly from goldsmith from Kolhapur.

Kolhapuri Thushi with pearl and corals along with Pearl Earrings

Gifted by my dad 15 years ago. Have preserved this carefully.

 If you're visiting Kolhapur, then never forget to gift yourself and loved ones, the traditional Thushi, which are available in large variety of designs. Thushi consists of small golden colorl beads, with a pink dollar or with pearls and corals. The golden beads with black beads are worn by married women.

I bought four Thushi's for myself and matching earrings during my last visit to Kolhapur. Care should be taken not to spray perfume, deodorant or water since the golden color may vanish.
