BO-KAAP by Mikhail Motala


Tucked away under the slopes of Signal Hill, formerly known as the Malay Quarter, this bright and colourful neighbourhood has a rich Cape Malay culture with roots as old as Cape Town itself. The Brightly colored homes and romantic cobble stoned streets of Bo-Kaap are just fascinating and so dramatically different from the rest of Cape Town.

I met Mikhail for the first time at Afrika Burn and we instantly hit it off. As he is a photographer based in Cape Town, he promised to show us around the city and a photoshoot was inevitable. 
Bo-Kaap was our first stop. 
Just the bright colors of Bo-Kaap put us all in a good mood and we spent about an hour walking though the lovely lanes of this neighbourhood. Here i am sharing some of the amazing captures by Mikhail.

Gadget Talk : The OPPO F3 Black Version


I am sure you already know that OPPO is the official sponsor of Team India and the big news is that OPPO is cheering for Team India, this cricketing season with the all new ‘Black Version’ of OPPO F3.

OPPO has been my favorite mid range smartphone for a long time now and now the Black Version has just added another star to the fame.

The camera phone brand OPPO, has launched a new version of the OPPO F3 - a new Black look. I personally love the matte black finish as it exudes a classic and elegant look. Keeping fashion in perspective black is always considered the most aristocratic color. Black goes well along with everything, it is an essential 'Must Have' color from the palette for anybody's closet. I believe that the OPPO F3 in black is more than a phone, it is the perfect fashion accessory to complete one's look. And the fact that it has matte finish only further proves what I say, because there's nothing more classy and sophisticated than subtlety.

AFRIKA BURN 2017 : Part 2


Here is the second part of my epic AFRIKA BURN experience. Please read the first part (previous post) to get my flow.

The remaining days went by in a blur of bliss. There was much to do, much to witness, much to experience. Visiting neighbouring camps, where the people of the camp would host communal meals, drinks & desserts and other fun group activities. The days were vibrant under the blue skies and at night this arid desert turned into a playground of lights. It is exquisitely breathtaking! The artworks lit up and everyone is in crazy costumes adorned with lights. The music gets louder!

I was beyond thrilled when I first heard that I was chosen to cover the launch of Jaguar’s The Art of Performance Tour in India. I would consider myself a driving enthusiast, as I blindly get excited to get behind the wheel at any chance I get. Now, getting behind a Jaguar’s wheel? Well, just let the story roll.
