While browsing via my latest adda (hindi for: a place where you hangout), I came across rooms, all scanned from magazines, that had Retro and/or India written all over them. You would know what my next thought was – I have to share these gems with you! (sorry, the images are a bit grainy…)The swing (jhoola) – common feature in traditional Indian homes. This room seems to be from a haveli
Low stools (moodha) – you can find these selling along the highways, especially in the north and central India
Love these wooden shutters!
Different forms of low diwan style sitting in the following pics:
Bright rugs, on the floor or on the wall..Cosy sitting nook in the form of a niche (aala)

And how can I leave the retro without a song? This epitomises the 80’s for me 😉
P.S: thanks for your emails in response to my last post. Blogger is still excruciatingly slow for me, but atleast the images are getting uploaded. And I will take your suggestion about dropping in a mail to blogger – hopefully that should help.
