About Me
Kalki through the looking-glass

As we entered Amy Billimoria’s House of Design in Juhu, Mumbai, we knew we were not in Kansas anymore. The store exudes a happy feeling. From the décor of the store to the clothes housed within it, we could tell that this was going to be a departure from a traditional bridal makeover.

About Me
Sonam and Paras Modi share their marriage mantra…

We met at a common friend’s wedding in Lonavla, after which we started meeting almost twice a week with friends. We got along like a house on fire; it felt so comfortable talking to each other, it was like we were long lost friends. The initial courtship felt more like a game of hide and seek. We didn’t want to tell people yet as we were still getting to know each other.

Have your own bank account

If you were working earlier or are still working, it is good to keep your own savings separately in a bank account in your name and contribute to the family kitty from it. While you may choose to have at least one account jointly with your partner, your primary savings can remain in your account. Similarly, if you choose to have a credit card, have one on your own. It helps build your own credit score and thus helps provide a quick record of your credit when you choose to borrow at any point.
