How easily we transitioned into the New Normal. But the question that bothers me is will we ever go back to what is actually normal? I think we all know the answer. And just like we accepted the new normal, we’ve silently accepted the fact that the world as we knew it has changed forever. There’s caution in the air, but we are also a lot more conscious – about everything we do. And maybe, that’s one positive that’s come out of this entire experience. For now, this is our reality. Life happens, no matter what! The festivities might be a bit toned down this year, it might lack the glint and glimmer of the previous year. But festivities there will be. We are gearing up for house parties albeit just with our…

It has been almost six months now that the whole world has shifted based home. Home has always been where the heart was and will be. Now it’s also where the work and the friends are.

art with food

For Aashna Arora, a life without design would be like a spoon without a fork. And when you think about the legacy she is in the process of creating with XAKA Retail, her thoughts become all too pertinent. “Every time I would pick up a pencil to sketch, I would always find myself starting with sketching a spoon. That’s when I knew I had a connection with cutlery. And that’s how XAKA came into play.” XAKA brings to the table (no pun intended) a cutlery and tableware that elevates the dining experience into an elaborate affair. Aashna takes great pride in bringing a fine dining flavour to our daily meals. Says the Creative Director, “The brand is a concoction of luxury, design and functionality. I aspire to create lasting designs…

NANDITA ARON Founder, The White Hill Inspired by the forest Every ceramic tableware design that comes out of The White Hill is inspired by Nandita’s time spent in forests. “All that we do is largely inspired from my time in Himachal and wildlife sanctuaries.
