Being yourself- The Vanca Girl

The Vanca
Tanya Batra- The Vanca Girl

Tanya Batra, a 27 year old woman sat there on the bean bag incessantly hurling through the pages of her big fat book. There was a laptop in front of her curled up posit and the phone was buzzing beside. Busy much, eh? With a series of chats and upfront friendly conversations, we get to know that she is a buzz in herself. Enrolled in her MBA Executive course, working in marketing and modelling in part time- that is how we nominate our The Vanca Girl.


The cute Vanca Girl- Innocent bliss!

When you are aiming for the brink of success, a lot many things try to pull you back, especially for a woman in a developing society with an independent mindset. However much the society bams your determination, your family’s support is imperative, says Tanya, her family is her introspect- 

If I would not have been born in my family, I could perhaps point to many things. However, I don’t see my efforts being pulled back by the society. At least nothing that affects my determination in that sort.”

When smiles create bridges!

A reformation of self is crucial to being what you are today, reformation according to your experiences, achievements and surroundings. About 6 years ago, Tanya met with an almost fatal accident and was shook to her very soul. Then was the time when she realizes about the crap that we all are heads up for. Life is so abrupt, it is so delusional! You remain close to your own comfort zone and do not realize the step out of the well. After the fateful day, Tanya meets her strong self. She develops the attitude of live-life-extravagant and there is no stopping her.

I once saw a picture of on her Whatsapp profile with an immense pink palette. I was all round eyed, I turned around and asked her if she did fashion modelling too. She was like, Eh! Yeah that, in my free time. I go like all sheepishly, “Umm, when exactly do you get free time?

So that went that and so, she is the curve of self upgradation, a motive of doing better because as Ms. Batra says, “There are no inspirations that remain, they are there and then they change because you see, sky is the limit!

Her secret to all this flawless feature is very simple, as she says that her prime motivation is in making extra effort in just one direction that retains the best of her attention. Her learning curve is linear, knowledge of too much grapples you with misdirection. She wanted a career in marketing and she makes it for herself!

“Maintaining optimism in the hardest times and balance in all other times.”- Tanya’s Mantra

Tanya believes in expression, expression of all sorts. Expression is the intimacy of your own self and your immediate space, you should make it intense and passionate, should you not? Fashion for her is a form of expression and she believes that if one is free with that expression, one is fashion and able enough!

Her next level of ambition is to become a lead marketer in a consumer focused giant India.

Our February edition The Vanca Girl has two cents to share with us,
“Do exactly what you feel like doing in life, enjoy it to the fullest and don’t take it too seriously. What is life? Life is a laugh! And that’s how you should live it.”

Blue for Autumn from The Vanca

There is always that one style, one trend and one design that sweeps over the social media. That one dress that you have always wanted in your wardrobe, that one dress that you have been trying to sort first! Sorting trends is not a thing that you do by yourself anymore, you don’t have to go around looking for inspirations in pictures and fashion weeks. You can look over the social media sites and take a long guess of what is trending this season, how can you design and pair it better and once you do all of that, where do you flaunt your pick.

You can always rely on fashion bloggers for a hint of trend, you can always carry forward the look they designed or you can reformulate it and look your own fashion queen! This September month has been a mix of heat and showers, what better to absolve of such a weather than opting for soothing blue with a hint of the ocean hue. Let us see how our bloggers have styled a certain best blue from our stores!

Says The Vanca Girl!

The incandescent nature of confidence and success booming up the presence of a girl who twirls at the dance of life- very closely defining The Vanca Girl!

Pallavi Rebbapragada is a leading journalist and an author by choice. She is drawn to her profession in the media and says that it is the best decision she has made. To give truth the limelight that it deserves and flash a rainbow of perspectives into the sky is her vision for change.



















The book of Pallavi’s beloved observations on life

Her book Upon a Bright Red Bench is the bittersweet telling of relationships, the charisma, the nostalgia, the sense of longing that lingers on even after they end. The relationships in life that make us what we are and define us in a certain way are detailed graphically in her book. There’s a subtle shock value in these stories narrated by a bench.

 Just like her book, Pallavi seeks to define life by stepping outside the frame and re-looking at experiences like a writer, and a journalist; intrigued yet detached. Her confidence is derived from the sights and scenes her journalism has taken her to – from dark alleys in India’s urban villages, to the luxury properties in the Middle East, to Europe’s valleys and watchmaking hubs to the homes of artists in the Far East.

Her pen has seen the blinding colours of fashion and luxury and dived through the dark alleys of crude realities of life like death, drugs and homelessness. Ask her what keeps her on the go and she says, “Home is, where the printing press is.

The Vanca Girl according to Pallavi is fearless and does not deter from making tough choices, she gives colours a chance…The Vanca Girl unknowingly sets trends! We can see the bright hues of summer covering her immense persona and shimmering accessories of the season defining her sleek statement.

 A Fashionista with a streak of Confidence

According to her, women can fight their own battles. The talent of sustenance is inherent in them. When asked about the challenges faced by women of the generations gone by – she replied very confidently that any challenge lies only in the mind, it is imagined, it is hype. She feels women before her have done great things, and women after her will do great things and everyday in India, a lot of women win discreet fights that nobody knows of and that is what we need to remember. She says, “My only advice is that women should not victimise themselves. We don’t require any sympathy or empathy. Be proud of your struggle for it will turn into your story one day.”

What pushes to do what she does is injustice and denial. She rebels at the sight of it, fighting big wars with nothing but a pen. Is there any poison deadlier than ink, she asks? Her style is momentary, it alters with her mood and with the seasons. From Spring Summer to Autumn Winter, from the ramp to the street, the only thing that remains constant in life is change.

The Vanca Girl of this month lives by the famous quote from Allama Iqbal- “Sitaron ke aage jahaan aur bhi hai.
