Things You Feel When Your Person Is In The Army | Mannat Sibal | BUTIKKA

Butikka World

Before you read the struggles and feelings there is one thing you should know as a pre requisite – Date someone in the military, fall in love and take the plunge. Be prepared for the best.

Take it from someone going through this nothing can top dating an army man.

  1. The people around you, the “civilians” would fail to understand why someone would ‘sign-up’ for this.

Not many would get the idea of a guy among their own age group wanting to take on such a big risk for the country we often keep dissing about. But not you, you see the thought from the point of view of your person, you see the spark in his eyes when he talks about wanting the uniform that people crave for. You realize the immensity of what the army means to him.

  1. You see your person as the asset to the country…

22 Signs you are a Convent School Passout | Mannat Sibal | Life | BUTIKKA |

  1. Irrespective of religion or faith and ignoring the type of holy place that you’re actually crossing, whether a Mosque, Temple, Gurudwara, etc; you WILL involuntarily pray by making a cross. Touching your temple then both of your shoulders and it’ll end with the big kiss!Untitled

One other thing that a Convent school does is, bring out the Grammar Nazi in you. It physically pains you to read bad English. Sarcasm is the only tone you seem to use hearing incorrect pronunciations


  1. If there is one thing that you ever do learn AND manage to remember for the rest of your lives from a convent school are the Hymns and Christmas carols. ‘My Father in Heaven..’ is probably (till now) the only prayer that comes to your mind when somebody asks you to recite one.

  1. There was always a morning prayer, then mid-day prayer and a closing prayer. AMEN.

  1. Zero Periods were THE only thing to look forward to before the annual day. And the teacher who dare took them for completing the syllabus made it to the Hate-list instantly.

  1. “Good mornings” were never so stereotypical, crisp and boring; they were full of laughs and elongated; “Goooooooooooooooooood mooooorrninngggggg Maaaaaaaaaam” was the way!

  1. In an All girls Convent you always lived in mystery trying to imagine the alternative lives of the nuns and sisters.6

  1. Atleast once in your life, when things had gone so overboard that you had your best friend tell you, “Im done. Im just going to give up life and become a nun o:)” And you ended up making a pact.

  1. Suddenly you felt an overwhelming love towards Christianity because of Good Fridays, Easter Monday, etc being the sole reason for a good sleep through the morning on a weekday. –aaaah bliss-


  1. Apparently after 8th grade, anything related to the opposite gender was directly related to heightened libido. And any contact, whichever mode, was “pure” or appropriate. Freudian much?

  1. Convent School girls are actually the strongest girls emotionally because they all grew up together, all through high school, with atleast one (or more) girl PMS’ing. So they dealt with drama and tantrums every day of every week.

  1. You always had that one friend or senior that you kept pampered so as to avoid being caught when the uniforms were being checked. Unpolished shoes or torn Shirts probably meant 2 days of tiffin sacrificed.8

  1. The Annual Inter-School Christmas Carol competition was when sh*t went down for real. It was like living out scenes from a Hollywood movie with ego and a narcissist attitude towards our schools pride (Probably the only time when you gloated in your schools name publically).9

  1. Talking about Inter-school events, the skirts would go up, the hair would flop down, the ties would be made lose and the shirt half-tucked out. And the teacher surveillance level would be hawk-eye.

  1. Speaking in Hindi or Punjabi was like a personified version of ‘untouchables’, anybody caught conversing in it was deemed for either an hour lecture or worse warning card.

  1. Most of you have, admittedly, tried to mock their Sister or Brother by talking in Hindi in their accent.

  1. You’ve been dressed up like an angel, a sheep, and a shepherd at least once (but probably three) times as a child. You, most likely, fought for the spot to be one of the Three Kings or battled your way to bag the Angel on top of the hill! Don’t lie. Your mother has photos.11

  1. Even though you were taught that God loves all equally; some conflicting views did arise.12

  1. This is probably how your First dance with your guy or girl went…34_1

  1. During the Indian Pledge, you always omitted the line “All Indians are my brothers and sisters…” questioned the logic behind it.55_1

  1. Whenever you were standing with one arm distance, waiting from some Father of some Church to come bless the class and sprinkle over Holy water, you ended up poking your friend infront.

  1. Lastly, modes of punishments for talking in the class varied from being made to stand at the back of the class to being chucked out of the class, to chalks being thrown at you and some major insults coming your way.

10 Things We All Do While Drunk That Make Us Never Want To Drink Again.

You know when you wake up in your clothes from the night before having slept fifteen hours straight but feeling completely unrested? You want to vomit, your cats think you’re dead and you can’t imagine ever consuming another drop of alcohol for as long as you live? Some of us have to do this pretty much every Sunday morning between the ages of 18 and 30 in order to figure out that it’s NAGL. The lucky ones get scared straight after the first couple of times and stay in on weekends with a cheese plate and knitting needles. Most people have had one day where we wanted to sit in AA for the rest of our lives and repent after a close call and you’re usually driven to that point by one of these things:

1. Staying for “one last round” five times. 

The odds that you’ll use the word “no” are significantly smaller when you’re wasted. Yes, you’ll eat the street meat. Yes, you’ll lend a stranger five dollars. Yes, you’ll smoke a cigarette even though you haven’t smoked since that one time freshman year. Totally made up statistic, but I’d say 40% of all drinks consumed are consumed long after they should have been. That’s when you get into the Puke Zone and the I’m Never Leaving My Bed Again hangovers.

2. Hooking up. 

Do I even have to say it? Another made up statistic, but I would say that 7/8ths of all regrettable hook ups happen as a direct result of happy hour. Sometimes waking up in a bed that you swore to yourself you’d never wake up in again is enough to make you want to give sobering up a go.

3. Tweeting like a crazy person. 

If you’ve never popped open Twitter while you were drunk and started documenting your sad little journey, I probably don’t like you. So many of us have done it and each and every one of us has woken up after doing one of those been like, “seriously kill me, please.” You swear you’ll never drink like that again, you’ll just delete Twitter from your phone before you go out and you’ll “keep a low profile” for a little while. That is, until later that day.

4. Driving drunk. 

Ask yourself honestly: Have you really never operated a vehicle while in a questionable state before? I think most people who are honest with themselves have woken up the day after a “close call” and thanked the God they may or may not believe in that they didn’t kill anyone or get a DUI the night before. I think some people (especially those of us who live in LA) can say that they’ve had several close calls and maybe even one night that was so fucking scary in retrospect that they cooled off for a hot minute after it. You should feel pretty ashamed for driving drunk. That should be a major wake up call.

5. Recklessly flirting.

If you haven’t face palmed a dozen times thinking about what a dork you were while hitting on an acquaintance the night before, congratulations because that is like, the worst feeling. Knowing that you were that vulnerable and THAT sloppy around someone you’re going to have to see again and pretend like “it’s all good” with is so beyond cringe-y, it’s on its own level. I haven’t flirted with anyone but my boyfriend in like, two years and I want to crawl into my bed and die just thinking about it.

6. Acting like our parents.

You ever spend a hungover morning trying to figure how and when it was that you turned into your mother? Or your crazy drunk grandpa? If you have a boozey bloodline, it’s not uncommon to find your drunk self reminding you a lot of the behavior that totally freaked you out as a kid. This, actually, is the most common reason I hear people cite for giving up the drink all together.

7. Oversharing with co-workers.

I’ve done it and I’ve seen it happen. You go out to drink with a couple of people from the office that you think are cool and next thing you know, you lose all discretion. You start blabbing about everything that you shouldn’t and give up tons of secrets and tidbits of gossip that you swore to yourself you’d never say out loud. Everyone tells you the next day that you’re all good and not to worry about it, but you know that they’re judging you. You’ll probably never work in this town again! And for what? A few martinis on an empty stomach? You’re SO never setting foot in another bar.

8. Mixing liquors.

The lesson that is rarely learned and has led to the most appalling behavior and hangovers that have you swearing you’re off the sauce for good. These are the nights that your friends refer to as “the incident”, where you pick insane fights that would normally never occur to you and where you wind up being asked to leave. There’s nothing worse than sitting on your bathroom floor, your soul tasting like tequila AND red wine, fully shaming yourself for all of the things that happened after 8:30 PM the day before.

9. Switching to something harder. 

Planning out a special time to do just molly or mushrooms is whatever—most people I know have experimented with drugs. But you only like, switch to blow at 2 AM and take a bunch of someone else’s Xanax when you’re blackout drunk. Not a lot of totally sober people are like, “Yeah, I’ll try ketamine.” Being impulsive about diversifying your buzz can be young, dumb fun or it can be just dumb. Trying to fall asleep after doing a ton of bad coke or waking up the day after godknowswhat is hell. It makes you want to put on a cardigan and go to the public library and cry.

10. Saying something you REALLY don’t mean.

Some people live by the saying “drunk lips speak sober thoughts” but sometimes you say something out of pocket when you’re on one and you genuinely do not mean it You have no clue where it came from. You’re mortified that those words were living somewhere inside of you. When you remember the next day that you went there (and you didn’t even know “there” was a place to go), your first thought is “I ruined my life.” If it wasn’t for that third margarita, you wouldn’t owe someone the kind of apology that automatically comes with tears! You’re done with booze and this time you mean it! For at least a whole week!

Feel the beat; Lakmé Fashion Week 2016 | Fashion | Mannat Sibal | BUTIKKA |

The hautest trends that the fashion industry had ever seen were spotted at the Lakmé Fashion Week 2016- the summer collection. An event which is every designers dream to be a part of was held at the Bollywood capital- Mumbai from 30th March to 3rd April’16.

The best and most featured designers, whose collection girls dream to wear someday, were Manish Malhotra, Rohit Bal. And the dreamy wedding lehnga designer Anita Dongre with many others.

Which could not have been possible to showcase, if not for the stellar performances by all the models. They floated ethereally down the runway in intricately designed clothes. Especially Carol Gracias who walked the ramp, flaunting her baby bump and breaking all stereotypes. Like only she could!


From the top-shots to fashion celebrities were seen at the event in support of their favorite couture friends.

From glamorous ensembles to dramatic capes, it had it all.  Manish Malhotra showed a collection that was dreamy and glamorous, just as we like it. Starting with soothing pastel hues and ending with earth blues and greens, the clothes combined traditional Indian silhouettes with contemporary elements.


Designer Sneha Arora’s collection themed ‘Find your wild’ was a breezy trip into the grasslands. Whites, rugged peaches and printed animal line drawings made their way on long shirts, open back dresses and summer jackets.


Fun, bright colours, ikat prints and tan gladiators made for an interesting collection by The Meraki Project.


Every girl wishes to have atleast one of her wedding functions outfit from Anushree Reddy. Elaborate techniques, pastel shades and zardozi embroidery were the strong points and her drapes absolutely on-point.




Watch People React To Being Called Beautiful

Most reactions are sweet, but one reaction is truly heartbreaking.

It’s not everyday that we receive or pay compliments just because we feel like it. Watch what happens when one student records the reactions of their peers and teachers when they call their classmates beautiful for a project. Most reactions are sweet and as expected, but one person had a rather hostile response. Watching this person respond that way is truly heartbreaking, because it gives off the notion that this person has either been bullied — or just never complimented. So when they hear one, they automatically assume they’re being insulted.

Let’s all make someone’s day and be more generous with our compliments!
