Assuming you are interested.....!

A bit of self- indulgence doesn't hurt....!
This one is for those blog dosts who live overseas and may have missed the current issue of a magazine I am exceedingly proud of ( ahem - I was the founding editor many, many moons ago!).

Good that I am able to read the few pages you have given in your web; happy to have read the ageing factor looked in its eye and an inspiring factor to read through and being confident of going up the steps and do something more with more energy.
Thank you Ms.De.
Bye bye

Simply pretty! With all the travelling and hectic schedules that you have, how do you manage to keep fit and radiant? You have to share your secret!

Maddy said...

Dost De,

Been in India for Two weeks. Searched for your book and happy that I got a copy of the classic glossy one. Read couple of chapters in the airport and hopefully to complete it soon.

Enjoy your ageing and have fun!

"I dont want my most profound relationship in life with a blackberry"...thats great but then why do u carry ur cell phone to ur washroom and why the urge to pick up calls while bathing?? and life coming to a standstill bcoz it slipped and ur phone crashed??

Lady, though I admire that you look sensational for a 60+ lady but pl be true to ur profession and WRITE RIGHT...i.e. what u actually r - not how u want to be projected/percieved...

You look great but whats the secret? All beauties go under the knife to maintain or enhance their beauty. How about you?

Dear Ma'am,
Thank you for this was an excellent and enriching read. You look fabulous, as always. I will be thirty in two years and often find myself thinking about this process of your interview and that gave me an encouragement to accept the inevitable in a graceful manner...:)Thank you.

Good one Shobhaa..loved the statement where you says "I don't believe in sitting on the fence". How I wish more and more people in India start doing that -- stop being hypocritical and state the truth. Great interview and pics. Btw, when can we see real Shobhaa -- I mean I can't believe you don't have a single grey hair. If we are saying accept the realities of life as you age, why can't we have natural hair colored Shobhaa on the cover page of Society or Vogue for that matter? Again, I am not saying why people should or should not color their hair but why not be as real and as dashing as one can be. Since you are the role model to so many, why can't you carry the touch of grey with style and lead the way for many more...just my thoughts.

Unknown said...

congratulations, mz de! now that the 60+ female population knows what standards they have to strive for, the beauty spas are going to get crowded. and yes, some may call it self-indulgence but it is purely self-realisation.
and as far as the snobs are concerned, why not have our chauffers and "kaam wali bai" on the ramp? since when has breeding and high birth ensured a presence on the catwalk? i thought all one needed was chutzpah and looking good against silk and satin.
