Armān presents...'Upclose stories', Chapter Fouzia & Saneya/2019. Interactive sessions between the artist and the audience in intimate, homely, settings without the visual and spacial inhibitions of a public performance. Chapter Fouzia & Saneya/2019- ‘Dialects of Old Delhi’: Fouzia, the first female Dastango of India, and Saneya, a Dastango hereself and an academician, bring to us dialects that were heard in pockets of Old Delhi’s fast disappearing social milieu. Fouzia narrates the ‘bolis’ of Naayis, Dhobans, Begums, Karkhandars, amongst others. Saneya contextualises them with explanations of their proper need, reason and source. Together, they breathe life into the daily lives of people within the Walled City from a time gone by, their values, beliefs, rituals and socio-cultural mores.

Oh hello. Here is my face. I realized I never post up-close photos of my face. It was always my least favorite thing about me when I was younger (yes my whole face 😂 - isn’t that crazy??). . Growing up, I was made fun of for my big forehead. One time someone said I had a frog forehead. From that point on, I tried to retain bangs to hide it. Now, I throw my hair up into a ponytail constantly and let my forehead shine! . I secretly hated that my parents didn’t remove the birthmark on my cheek. People would constantly tell me I had something on my face, and I had to keep telling them that no, that is my birthmark. Now, I act confident in my face, and no one even questions my mark. My sister always had flawless hair, but I had to put in effort to make mine look half decent and not frazzled. Now, I barely bother to make it look good, and I’m okay with that 😆. . I have learned over time that these are the things that make me unique. It’s so easy to critique every small thing about your looks. It’s especially true now with social media to not fall into the trap of comparing yourself to others, but remember that everyone is beautiful in their own way! . I love my forehead. I love my birthmark. I love my hair. Own your beauty! What about yourself are you in love with today 😍? Let me know below!
