Summary: When she isn't walking the ramp, Tamara spends time working with orphans

and cancer patients. She tells us about her travel escapades.

1 Most recent vacation

On the way back from a show in Aizawl, in Mizoram, my dear designer friend Charlie was sweet enough to postpone the connecting flight, giving me a few days in Kolkata, where my dad once went to university.

2 What did you do in Kolkata

My friend Soumyajit Majumdar took me out for a delicious and astoundingly inexpensive meal. We then hung out with friends. The next day I was off to Santiniketan, arriving past midnight and took a breezy cycle rickshaw ride to the nearest hotel--this freedom came as a breath of fresh air after post 9 p.m oppressive Delhi. I was happy and at ease at this charming place.

3 An amusing episode during the trip

My muscular driver was about 50 years old and was called Abdul Kalam! The people at Santiniketan are so warm. He invited me to his house for lunch where I found myself adopting the role of both the bemused subject, and photographer, as every member of his extended family and neighbourhood visited us!

4 Must take along while travelling

Phone charger, couple of green tea sachets and a yoga mat.

5 Your type of city

Cities of love such as Bir in Billing, Nelson in New Zealand, and now Santiniketan.

6 Newest thing tasted

Kolkata's legendary puchkas, which are bigger than I imagined!

7 Most extravagant holiday

A spontaneous five-day climbing vacation to Ton Sai island, off Phuket.
