It was one of those days I was taking the 7:10 pm train from work.
There was a bustle, an ocean of people as there always is at CST station.
Across from me was this girl. She was reading, perhaps.
It was her bag I noticed as she stood up to mount it on the carrier.
“I like your bag,” I said. She smiled. I went on to enquire where she had bought it.
The train hadn’t started to move. A friend was dashing towards the station.
I had to wait by the door to show her where I was.
I returned and this time, I noticed the girl’s shoes.
I enquired again. She asked me, ‘Are you a student of design?’
That’s how I met the sea shell girl or as previously referred to: the girl from the train.
We didn’t exchange numbers just then. We tried but it was my stop and I couldn’t find my business card.
“If we’re meant to meet again, fate will make it happen.”
She said that to me! And just like that, I knew we would.
I did meet her again. We located each other on facebook. Added ourselves on the Blackberry messenger list.
Some months later, she sells sea shells off attics and more. 🙂
She ‘collected’ stones over time from different places, hence, each piece is inimitable. Her design ideology is simplistic, to bring out natural textures and designs. So, she uses natural minerals and doesn’t exactly produce in bulk.
She sells at the Attic: Bir Sagar 396/20, flat #1, end of 17th road, Santacruz (W), Mumbai, India
Or you could buy from her at: firstname.lastname@example.org
