Socks. They are the unsung heros of any outfit. For the most part, people look at socks as simply a utilitarian garment that is much more function than fashion.
However, Soul Socks is looking to change the way we think about socks.
Set in the quiet village of Adalaj, this vav has served as a resting place for hundreds of years for many pilgrims and caravans along their trade routes. Built in 1499 by Queen Rudabai, wife of the Vaghela chief, Veersinh, this five-storey stepwell was not just a cultural and utilitarian space, but also a spiritual refuge. It is believed that villagers would come everyday in the morning to fill water, offer prayers to the deities carved into the walls and interact with each other in the cool shade of the vav. There is an opening in the ceilings above the landing which allows the light and air to enter the octagonal well. However, direct sunlight does not touch the flight of steps or landings except for a brief period at noon. Hence some researchers say that the atmosphere inside the well is six degrees cooler than the outside. Another remarkable feature of this stepwell is that out of the many stepwells in Gujarat, it is the only one with three entrance stairs. All three stairs meet at the first storey, underground in a huge square platform, which has an octagonal opening on top. The vav is a spectacular example of Indo-Islamic architecture and design. The harmonious play of intricate Islamic floral patterns seamlessly fusing into Hindu and Jain symbolism embody the culture and ethos of those times. All the walls carved by ornamentation, mythological scenes along with everyday scenes of women churning buttermilk, dancers accompanied by musicians, women adorning themselves and a king sitting on a stool. Fascinating to many visitors is the Ami Khumbor (a pot that contains the water of life) and the Kalp Vriksha (a tree of life) carved out of a single slab of stone. There is a belief that the small frieze of navagraha (nine-planets) towards the edge of the well protects the monument from evil spirits.

This is one of the more utilitarian bike in the sport bike category that I've owned. The upright position makes this bike very comfortable, while the parallel twin engine puts out tons of low-end and midrange torque and power. It's really a lot of bang for the buck, I wouldn't mind owning another one.
On the importance of maintaining an open mind and rejecting false certainty, from both those who want us to believe they have it all figured out and those who wish to instill us with shame for having the nerve to actually propose and defend a systemic worldview where concepts like ethics, truth and value are not meaningless.

We're talking about the hottest trends in wedding invitations, and to really make your invites stand out, you've got to think about everything... even the belly band that binds your invitations, reply cards, and maps together. A bellyband takes the place of an “inner envelope,” and even this utilitarian part of your invite set can add style to your presentation. A classy and traditional approach to the belly band is a rich velvet strip with an antique brooch as a flourish. Or choose a binding that will give your guests a clue to the wedding's theme... if you are going for a country style wedding, use twine or ribbon interwoven with a sprig of thistle, creating a lasso effect. Or use palm tree leaves to give your guests an early taste of your upcoming tropical wedding. Just make sure the bellyband strikes a nice balance with the rest of your invite materials... if the invitations are busy, keep the bellyband simple, but if you have very simple invitations, go a little crazier with the bellyband. It's all about striking a harmonic balance in your wedding invitation, the first step towards striking a harmonic balance on your wedding day... and in your marriage.
