ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsFor most of us here in India, travelling finds an unwitting connection to chai. Traversing through the country's picturesque landscape, these heavenly places serving steaming cups of chai can be found in quaint villages high up in the hills, or under the thatched roofs of a dilapidated chai ki tapri along the highway. Yet, no matter where we happen to chance upon one, it never fails to fill our heart with joy at the very sight of it. © Facebook Now, imagine such a tea-stall located in a small village in some part of this country, shouldering the weight of an elderly couple's ardent dreams to explore the length and breadth of not just India, but the entire world. Yes, you are right. This almost seems like an impossible dream when you hear about it at first, but guess what, there exists such a tea-stall and such a couple who have managed to realise their dreams of travelling around the world, by running a tea-stall! © Facebook Vijayan and Mohana, both in their late 60s, are from Kochi in Kerala, but are better known to the world as the “globetrotting couple” who travel around the world by selling tea. Vijayan and Mohana have been running a nondescript tea-stall in Kochi, called the 'Sree Balaji Coffee House' for the past 40 years, and the minimal earnings from that business have allowed them to travel to over 23 countries so far! © Facebook How do they manage to make all this happen you ask? Well, the key to their success is the couple's undying grit and desire. Vijayan and Mohana refuse to be cowed down by the financial restraints or the logistic trivia that might hamper their bigger plans. The elderly couple saves from whatever little they make at their shop, and rely on small loans to fund their travels. After saving Rs. 300 every day for decades, they used it along with their meagre income and bank loans, to explore 23 countries! It was back in 1963 when Vijayan began selling tea in the streets to fulfil the travel dreams he shared with his wife. © Facebook Singapore, New York and Switzerland are some of his most favourite places. The couple has been to Brazil, Argentina, Peru, USA besides many others, but currently, their plan is to check out Sweden, Denmark, Holland, Greenland Norway. There is simply not stopping this duo! For Vijayan, travelling is all about collecting experiences and learning about other people and their culture. Vijayan marvels over the beauty of landscapes and the kinds of people they meet during their travel. © Instagram Their philosophy is simple. Keeping their nest destination in sight, the couple continues to save Rs 300 every day, and keep their expenses to the minimum (they work both as worker and manager of their tiny shop). While on their trip, they spend very little on unnecessary things. Still, the loans they take keep getting piled up, and after every trip, they spend the next three years trying to repay that debt. Their story might be laden with a lot of struggles, but Vijayan and Mohana don't plan to give up as long as their arms and legs are moving. This couple is proof that no amount of limitations are big enough to stop someone from realising their dreams if they set their heart to it.

ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsNowadays, log onto any celebrity style website/Instagram page and you'd be quick to notice similarities between a few uploads. Sneakers — every famous man's frequent indulgence — have now replaced the concept of semi-formal footwear; everyone's wearing sneakers with (literally) everything now. They have almost become like a way of life. But while that's that, a few pairs of course, emerge as complete favourites. Like the Balenciaga Speed Sock sneakers, as seen on Aryan Khan here: #Bollywoodactor @iamsrk 's son #AryanKhan arrives to attend a programme organised to celebrate Friendship Day in Mumbai's Bandra. #aryankhan #starkids #shahrukhkhan #iamsrk #friendshipday A post shared by Bollywood.com (@bollywood_dotcom) on Aug 5, 2018 at 9:04pm PDT In ideology, the speed sock sneakers are knitted, sock-like kicks that feature a shock-absorbing, memory sole technology and besides their unique construction, also boast of a textured sole (you can't miss it). But while men like Varun Dhawan, Diljit Dosanjh are just simply wearing these Balenciaga sneakers, star kids like Aryan Khan are aiming for a mismatched medley. While his right foot was gracing red sock sneakers, his left foot was witness to a black sock sneaker. What the hell was he eyeing here? Is this a brand-new style move to cop? @___aryan___ spotted at #bastina #FriendshipDay2018 #aryankhan #Bollywood #instadaily #instalike #likeforlikes A post shared by Bollywoodnewzz (@bollywoodnewzz) on Aug 5, 2018 at 8:45am PDT Let's talk of how he's brought this sight together. Khan decided to opt for a cosy hoodie here (unzipped to a level of two-buttons-open) and paired it with classic jeans. However, while you may call this a last-minute (plus safe) styling decision, it's hard to ignore the chemistry between the colour of his hoodie with one of his shoes. So clearly, while the star kid was eyeing a well-balanced sight here, his decision of opting for mismatched shoes, brought a lot of drama along; but in a very subtle manner.

Plus, they're almost as cosy as the feeling of slipping into socks, but alternatively, also give you a lot of grip while you're up and about. And while the Balenciaga speed sock sneakers are very minimal in style, turn to other brands in the market and you'd find a lot of maximalist options in 'snockers' out there. And while Aryan has worn the red and black variants here, the speed sock kicks come in a lot of other colours and even with prints on top. @___aryan___ paired his red sweater with red/black @balenciaga sneakers #bollywood #style #fashion #beauty #bollywoodstyle #bollywoodfashion #indianfashion #celebstyle #celebrityfashion #indianstyle #afashionistasdiaries #indianfashionblogger #delhidiaries #bollywoodstylefile #mensstyle #aryankhan #balenciaga #casualstyle A post shared by A Fashionista's Diary (@afashionistasdiaries) on Aug 5, 2018 at 8:54pm PDT Point being, mismatched pairs are a thing now. But keep the drama on the kicks as the focal point. Unless, a lot of chaos and debauchery is on your mind.
