Going your own way isn't always easy. Lacoste L!VE knows this, which is why they want to celebrate the #NewPerspective.

3. The pain of trying to find skinny jeans that fit when you've got curves.


You've not yet accepted that you're far from the hipster androgynous ideal. Maybe you can do something creative with a lungi or a low-slung sari instead?

4. The struggle of trying to find somewhere that sells the latest comic books.

But on the plus side, you do have almost exclusive access to Tinkle and Chacha Chaudhary.

9. Having to get creative with clothing.


So you own one or more of the following: customised dhotis, repurposed saris, satchels, nerd specs, wooden Buddha clogs, skinny jeans, plaid shirt, combat boots, and a pair of neon browline sunglasses (bought from Janpath market, of course).

13. Having to take out a bank loan to pay for a drink at the latest hot spot.

A vodka and coke = Rs. 2000 and a kidney.

14. Reading Pitchfork to learn about new bands.


Then filling up your playlists with music by Crystal Antlers, Wilco, The Fall, Arcade Fire, Bent Shapes, Iron Chic, The Stooges, The Kinks, and Daft Punk.

22. You judge people by their bookshelves.


Ernest Hemingway, Bertolt Brecht, Jack Kerouac, Jonathan Safran Foer, Charles Bukowski, Henry Miller, Stephen Chbosky, Thomas Pynchon, and Oscar Wilde – YES.

Dan Brown or Chetan Bhagat – are you serious?!
