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.

What does a notebook mean to you? A personal journal to jot down secret thoughts, or a rough notebook for taking notes, or a wreck journal that you plan to scribble on and destroy, or a gift to a friend who loves stationery? A notebook is essentially an inanimate companion that brings your thoughts to life. What a magical being it is!
Error, error on the planner!
Who is the creative-est of all!
It has come to our notice that there is an error on the mini monthly view calendar of June month in our Bhav Planner 2016. Instead of starting from a Wednesday, the month starts from Tuesday. How many of you spotted the mistake? After imaginable panic at this, first of all, we would like to apologize for this mistake. But this has not brought us down – we have decided to put a creative spin to this catastrophe!
This mistake has allowed us an opportunity to post our very first D-I-Y idea on our blog!
Idea 1: A Simple Cover-Up
Since the mini calendar starts with a Sunday, a very quick fix is pushing the starting day to Monday so that the the first of June becomes Wednesday! You can use a paper that matches the background color of the planner or use other colored paper as well!
Hi there! We are ecstatic to welcome you to the world of Bhav through this blog! We hope that this platform will spark thoughtful conversations around the Do-It-Yourself (D-I-Y) culture, creative expressions, stationery products, and becomes a home to many more amazing ideas. (more…)
