Tell us about your everyday lockdown routine.
My 7-year-old daughter still has online classes and school, so, she has to get up in the morning and get ready as per her schedule. My day starts with a bit of school work and breakfast with kids. Then, I try to get my work done post-lunch when my little one is napping and I let my older one watch a movie. That’s the time I can really concentrate on work. I turn my dressing table into a work desk.

Are you binge-listening to any podcasts and music currently?
I’m not listening to any podcasts, but one of my new finds during the quarantine period has been audible e-books, and I’m absolutely loving them. I have started listening to Becoming by Michelle Obama, and it’s actually read by her.
What are you watching on streaming apps?
There is so much on Netflix that we saw in the last three weeks; Tiger King, She, re-runs of Friends and Mind Hunter. We watched Parasite too, and recently started Sex Education, which is quite funny.

Could you suggest some home-decoration and other DIY hacks?
I’ve got so many tutorials up on my IGTV, right from small calligraphy quotes to DIY dream-catchers, DIY ice cream and make-your-own re-diffusers, which is my favourite because most of our diffusers are empty by now. But as long as you have essential oils or carrier oils like grapeseed oil and olive oil, at home, you can just refill your bottle and have your home smelling nice.

Are you eyeing any new products that you would like to purchase as soon as the lockdown is over?
No, I’m actually not looking to buy anything, and consciously trying to buy less, live with less, minimize and de-clutter. I’m genuinely trying to become more conscientious of the environment.
Post the lockdown, how do you think the world and the luxury consumption in India will change?
I feel that people will travel less, at least in 2020 and, maybe, in early 2021 as well. A majority of purchases made while travelling will now happen in India. This would support the Indian brands and small businesses, and, hopefully, buyers will like and realise the talent and quality available in India.
In the luxury space, I think there is definitely going to be some struggle. Consumers will consciously try to live with less and try to live out their products a bit more, instead of buying frequently. Personally, I believe, it would be quality over quantity.
