It starts with a miraculous first embrace, then the gentle hug of warmth. A stroke of strength with the growing years that toughen each year that passes by.
The gentle whisper of lullabies, to the Rock a bye Baby in Cradle, Snow White fairy tales to the Goldilocks and the Three Bears mystery. The temptations of Winnie the Pooh Bear’s honey, graduating to the encyclopaedias of Know How's of the world. The know your facts to hopping over to the course books in the classroom.
The layers of motherhood bring forth a new face to life and its stages. The comfort and warmth of storytelling in cosy bed to the push of facts of the "Know How's" of the world. The warnings and the alert thrown every step forward, preparing for a firm foot to survive a tough wave. The heart of steel, shines on to help ride this tricky wave and not be knocked over.
A Mother is the beginning, and Motherhood a Journey, that peels many layers to find a true Soul. A Soul, who leads a way to life of comfort, knowledge, challenges, love and heartbreaks, to find a "Path to Life".
Thank you, Mom, to show me a path to life and its journey. You have been truly beautiful in every way and at every peel of emotion.
To the World, you are a Mother... To your family, you are the World

Do you have a recollection of the “fair, slim and beautiful girl” standard requirement in matrimonial section of a newspaper? Did it ever occur to you or your family, that if the girl does not fit this standard, she has a reason to worry? To find a “tall, dark and handsome boy”, the girl needs to be “fair, slim and beautiful”?
Alas! Not anymore. Thanks to the confidence and persistence of the new age women, they finally connect to the beauty in their uniquest form. Rather, beauty finds a new dimension.
This International Women’s Day month, StyleAura interacted with many such beautiful women of substance. Corporate Diva 2017, was one such event, where women from diverse professions came together to walk the ramp. The endless list of their achievements in profession, made them walk tall in confidence and feel beautiful with every step forward they took on the ramp. To pamper their spirit in form of makeover, professional photo shoot, designer clothes and jewellery, was a bonus to the years of hard work and sweat put in to add a new dimension to beauty.
Yet another event, that captured the women of substance, was Wonders Of Woman (WOW) Season 2. The women took time off from the fight against big challenges in life, and faced the audience with pride, in designer clothes and model like posture, to tell their nerve chilling story of being unsung women heroes. Each one was a showstopper with the uniqueness of character that empowered them to feel beautiful with the scars of pain overcome with their fighting spirit.
StyleAura salutes the women evolving to style up their life journey with colours of passion, determination, positivity and strength. Now that’s what we call, “beautiful”. The new dimension of “beautiful” can’t be defined, but surely be felt by every woman uniquely and effectively.
Beauty is not in the face; Beauty is a light in heart.
