She is the Perfect Solution to Execute Your Craziest Event Ever!! 1301

Events Become Feelings, Feelings Become Events.

– says with all enthusiasm, Lavina Gupta, the most creative, fun-loving, endearing woman who is the pioneer of Thea Events and media, Bangalore.

Being born in a family of interstate parents, Lavina enjoyed the diversity among both cultures since a young age. Two different traditions taught her the importance and values of family and respecting cultures. She loved weddings, parties, and any family get-together. Her father being a Punjabi, one can imagine the fun in any occasion.

She grew up to a beautiful young woman and before she could blink, there came her prince charming asking her hand in marriage. The always energetic and chirpy girl who was fascinated with all the beautiful things was mesmerized wanting to see her own marriage in bright colors, beautiful things everywhere.

Lavina was married at an early age and she never got an opportunity to think what is it exactly she wanted out of life. Life went on smoothly after marriage. Everything she did, she always had an eye for beautiful things. Be it clothes, decorative items or anything attractive. Everything she touched, it had to shine.

Husband who adored her and two beautiful children who thought the world of her, kept her busy on her toes after marriage. She enjoyed time with family and friends pleasing all with her penchant culinary skills.

While we talked, she spoke with such a zeal in her voice and suddenly she became silent. As she recalls, she said,

Years passed and life moved on. However, it started to wear on me. I noticed all my friends type on their laptops at such a speed and busy with their career, it made me think.

She could not find her peace with what life offered because that was not something she earned or craved for. That feeling of wanting to become something in life, to become a woman who is independent financially, gave birth to her company that is today “Thea events and media”.

Out of curiosity, I asked her “Why events planner and not anything else? To which she answered,

Life is so beautiful and when you celebrate something, you have to make it big and memorable. Who best can guide you than me who has seen all kind of traditions since I can ever remember.

That’s the aura of confidence, she spreads to anyone who talks to her.


Initially, Thea events were started along with her friend and both together arranged some memorable, creative events. However, her friend had to quit when she was about to have a baby. Losing the partner support Lavina found it difficult to manage all by herself. Yet she did not stop.

She says,

Once you know the taste of success and you know you are going to reach your goals: all you need to do is keep going and you do not stop. You keep going, with whatever speed you can.

She managed to take the Thea Events forward single handed. She worked on various events of all kind. Her creative mind made every event an enjoyable, fun filled, laughter, and the most attractive party for her customers.

Thea Events and Media are specialized in both corporate and social events.

When I asked what is the best thing she likes being an even planner, looking all shy and smiley she said,

The expression of WOW! by people who gather looking at my arrangements and appreciating openly. Asking for my contact details, so that they can find me to plan for their parties, was something that made me feel happy and content.

Her advice to all young women is,

Listen to your inner mind. There is always a calling that only your mind knows, about what you want out of your life. When it is time, you will know what you have to do and when you do, never take a step back.

SA Photography – We click photos as a return ticket to a moment otherwise gone. 53

Believing in the philosophy- Do what you love and the rest will follow, Sanchi Aggarwal started Say Cheese Studio to view the world through her lens for perspective. Trained in Electronics and Communications to be an engineer and take forward the already well-established family business was a but obvious expectation from Sanchi but the realisation that her world and calling lay beyond machines & tools was when the creative animal in her started raising its ugly head.

But it was not until her visit to Sai Ashram- an abandoned dog shelter in 2013, that became a defining moment for her. She was really touched by the distress and misery of those suffering dogs and decided to bring about awareness and the needed attention of a larger audience for the cause. And as the visuals say louder than words she clicked pictures and shared with the world. With this she not only succeeded at the mission at hand but also her true calling was found – PHOTOGRAPHY.

Despite the fact that following a creative medium that transcends all barriers be it language, caste, color, creed anything physical or material and yet communicate was a daunting task, she always believed that the only way to capture a good memory is by feeling and being fully immersed in that moment.

When she decided to find her pot of gold in photography, her passion was to become the voice of the voiceless to create awareness about their plight and elicit support for change and betterment. So, the streets, people and the life itself became her stage. She travelled extensively, taking her camera along to the places like Kolkata , Jodhpur , Jaisalmer, Ladakh etc as her motivation comes from all the interesting people she shoots, from her interactions with them and the range of emotions that she is able to capture.

The medium is huge but I chose to document street life because of the innocence and purity of my subjects and to be able to capture them in their most natural environment.

– says Sanchi who is mentored by Raghu Rai into the world of photography.

Her genres of specialisation includes

–Street photography

–Portrait photography

–Studio photography


She also conducts photography walks, in and around Delhi and organises photo tours for enthusiastic photographers in India.

Humankind longs for immortality- want to leave behind something for the posterity. Photography, for me, as an art form is part of that desire to be immortal and as a photographer one is immensely blessed to live beyond one’s life as photography is a journey to eternity.

– adds Sanchi

All I can take away from her story is –spend time with your inner self to evolve your own skill and vision and folks, being persistent always pays!

The Man Behind The Glamour and Beauty! 1761

Jewelery and Accessories add a little sparkle wherever you go.

Absolutely right!! Coz every piece of jewelry tells a story. Isn’t it??

Today I am here to share the story of a man who fancied, created and designed his own brand for jewellery. Meet Mr Abhishek Sehgal, owner of the fast-growing online brand of jewelry, JEVELEN, that has already made its mark all over the world, and is all set to make a mark in India too.

India is a country with a great passion for jewels, art, and culture. Various stones like ruby, diamonds, emeralds etc, not only have their prominence in enhancing beauty but also are used in significance to the horoscopes. We find custom made ornaments depending on our choices and Jevelen is one such brand set out to bring a difference at an affordable price and at the comfort of buying online.

I feel like Jewelry just happened! It kind of chose me, I think!!

– says Abhishek, thinking back to how he came into the business of gems and diamonds.

[aesop_image img=”” offset=”-100px” align=”right” lightbox=”on” captionposition=”left” revealfx=”off”]

Being born to a business class family of Delhi, he was always driven by a desire to start something on his own. A business that sets him as a unique and successful entrepreneur, a job where he can be his own boss. After completing his senior secondary in education, he decided to go to Sydney, Australia to find himself a job. But it was difficult to find a good one and he worked in a couple of places trying to find a living. He also worked in Agricultural farm land for few months before he found of job in a jewelry workshop.

I have always loved designing and doing creative things since my childhood and finding a job in designing and creating jewelry out of precious stones was like a dream come true to me.

– recalls Abhishek, with a smile on his face remembering his earlier days of his dream job when he initially started as a worker.

Although he was the most intelligent and best worker, his salary did not make him reach his dreams and to make his own mark with his talents that he learned over the time while designing the jewels.

Then is when he decided to start JEVELEN his own brand of beautiful Jewelry and accessories. He began to design and market his products. The start was definitely not a walk on a bed of roses. He did struggle to bring his business into one of the top-selling jewelers without any much back-up, support and being self-funded. Well, as they say, “where there is a will, there is a way”…. stands true to this man. There was no stepping back once he started and he began with promoting his products. As he was in Australia, he started from there and slowly he spread the business globally.

The biggest challenge for me was creating a product differentiation. Keeping that in mind, our products are unique in design and in its make. Jevelen Jewels are made with Rhodium, an American Diamond. The best part of it is they are not copied or merchandised and are original.

–  tells Abhishek who is all eager to bring it to his home country that is India.

Being successful globally, he is looking forward to launching the brand here in India with a dream of many possibilities. Launching his brand alone is not the idea, but he also wishes to provide jobs to the unemployed by setting up workshops of jewelry making across many cities in the country thereby hiring people with a craftsman’s hand.

The company will be launched with about 50+ franchise outlets across PAN India and will be soon one of the major jewelry brands of our country. The company also donates 10% of their monthly profit to charity in terms of child education, old-age homes, widows, animal feeding and orphanages trying to provide a hand to those in need.

Here is a man who not only has a good heart and is talented with an art of designing gems & diamonds but also knows the value of hard work.

As an entrepreneur and a good human being, Abhishek Sehgal, truly stands as an inspiration who has achieved so much at such a young age.
