Writing the perfect paper from BHAV is a lot like a military operation. It takes discipline, foresight, research, strategy, and, if done right, ends in total victory every seconds.

26th April 2017 is this year’s World Stationery Day. In light of this event, we—the Bhav team—have shared what stationery means to each one of us and what our favourite Bhav product is. Happy World Stationery Day!
Stationery for me is…
Stationery to me means story time with my family. Since childhood I’ve admired my father’s antique stationery collection that today, is over 70 years old. My sister and I would sit with our father drinking tea prepared by my mother, and listen to his stories about when and from which country he bought his crayons, colour pencils, notebooks and several other stationeries. My father would explain to us his earliest diary entries from as early as the 1960s and also show us his figure drawings and the different types of nibs he used to use for his calligraphy projects. I remember the moment he showed me a colour pencil with a string attached close to its nib; I was in awe because to sharpen that colour pencil, you had to pull its string. Such a stationery was a magical revelation for me back then, which is why stationery strongly connects with me because of the story time sessions with my family.
