How does it feel to be a shoe? We answer the question. Weaved into a garland, hurled in anger, and removed outside a temple (before seeking blessings). Bollywood has always had a fascination towards the shoes. From songs to film titles (even plots) - the shoe has stamped its footprint on the 70MM. Moments that define life revolve around little girls slipping into mum’s heels and dad’s taking pride as they watch their son slip into their shoes. But, do things change when we grow up? Perhaps, the shoes are too large to fill. We spend a few moments on the streets, under the trees: getting to know the life of the cobbler, the humble man, whose single stitch can save your day. We got nostalgic as we thought of the annual ritual of buying shoes before the new school session. Who doesn’t remember the rubbing of chalk powder on white canvas shoes to keep them clean? Or the shopping trips to Bata. And a lot more in our Special Indian Shoe Edition.
