More the merrier?



The question really is more of what? More fashion weeks? More opportunities or more fights and resentment?

With the news that the Amby Valley India Bridal Week is now coming to Delhi after its attempts in Mumbai for the last three years, murmurs and bickering have started in the fashion capital.

The word is that many of the leading names have confirmed their participation at the bridal week (all of them FDCI members) and FDCI is unhappy with its own members lining up with a competing fashion event in the same city.

AVIBW had announced its dates a few months ago and FDCI announced its dates for Delhi Couture Week a few weeks back and what’s being said is that the dates of the events are now overlapping.

That doesn’t seem to be in good spirit as it won’t be good either for AVIBW or DCW or for that matter those who love fashion.

I remember a few years ago when Sumeet Nair started his fashion week at Delhi’s Emporio, similar clashing of dates happened and it resulted in plenty of confusions and loss of interest in the industry from those who matter.

It trivialised India’s fashion industry which desperately seeks serious recognition by serious bodies.

Now, with this latest confusion, (even as I heard AVIBW has advanced its dates so as not to have a clash), our small world called fashion industry with its big egos and wrong goals will no doubt once again bring down the image of being serious business.

My question is, why the hell should anyone be discouraged or stopped from taking part in another event? Why the hell should any one clash the dates of one’s event with another?

Isn’t it enough for a fashion designer to see what’s best for him and his business? Who the hell are others to decided what’s best for them? Who the hell are they to leash them so as to make them dance to their tunes?

It definitely is a laughing matter. Our designer industry is so small that there really shouldn’t be anything that prevents individual growth from
happening.

All should and must be free to take part in any event that they deem fit for them. They should know that anyone who try to stop them can never be their well wisher.

    I do fully agree with you madam it is the concocted ethos of the self proclaimed big guns as they share a very obsolete dogma of the fairer sex

    Nitish says he would have stayed with BJP if Mr. Advani is proposed as PM candidate. Suppose BJP do not get majority on its own and requires allies and BJP decides to make Mr. Advani as PM candidate after weighing pro and cons.
    Is Nitish is going to make a Second U turn then or he has not thought through this? Is he going to prove himself the master of “con” politician ( for purpose of fun only) after getting money from Congress and sticking with BJP proving “right” all the way through?

    Nitish has shown his class as a crass political manipulator. He should be lined up along with Mulayam, Lalloo who are selfish and ready to sell the country for their survival. He should be taught a fitting reply in the next election by Bihar if they understand what is good for them.

    Nitish was all for NAMO untill 2004 LS election when Bjp JDU combined got only 11 MP seats. Lalu got 22 MP seats as he has Muslim vote bank after he arrested Adavni yatra in Bihar. Nitish changed after 2004 election to get Muslim vote bank. In 2009 LS election BJP JDU got 32 seats.this again confirmed Nitish beleif that MODI bashing is very good for getting Muslim votes. Had JDU and BJP got 32 seats in 2004 election ,Nitish would have been all for NAMO as he was before 2004 election.

    Nitish and this writer should know that the Indian people have never supported turncoats and opportunists.What is astonishing is that he finds the original ‘rath yatri’Advani as secular, conveniently fogetting that Advani’s rath yatra had left a trail of blood letting as a result of communal riots all over the country. Does Nitish think that the Indian Muslim has forgotten Ayodhya and Advani’s rath yatra? if so, he is living in a fool’s paradise. In the Mahabharata war Duryodhana thought that with Karna by his side he will decimate the Pandavas easily, but Karna never delivered. So also the Muslim vote bank may never go to Nitish and he may rue his decision he has taken so enthusiastically.

    NIce analysis. In the end I have a feeling that the media will do a helen and bindu type of Mujra when Congress throws its loot money and Congress may win.

    Sooner or later Indian Muslims will know that whatever these politicians do is just for getting the vote and not for the good of their community. Muslim vote bank politics will not work in days to come. Sikh people assassinated Indira Gandhi and today we have Manmohan Singh as PM for 2 terms. So there is no logic whether a Hindu, Muslim or Sikh will become PM. Public are now more aware of politics and will choose candidate for the CHANGE. because change is always good. Riots took place in British era also, then we have partition. India still alive and religion based politics will not help any. What is the Need of the hour is a good strong leader. India desperately needs a competent leader. Manmohan Singh must be a very good knowledgeable person but leadership skill is missing. And today’s shadow leaders are lacking grey matter. There is a brand value which works but not always because there is competition in the product line. People eventually will choose the better product. Or at least change the product for a test. recent example is west bengal but it remains a test case not a success story till date.

    The “local vote” is perhaps, confined to the villages. As the country gets more and more urbanized, the national vote is becoming more and more important. Modi should be a beneficiary of this national vote.
