At home with Waris

Por Belén Torregrosa

La primera que vi a Waris Ahluwalia fue en la gran pantalla. ¿Has visto The Darjeeling Limited? Esa película tan Wes Anderson como Wes Anderson que despierta unas ganas tremendas de viajar a la India y vivir un tiempo enredado en ése país kilométrico.

House of Waris es el nombre de la web que aloja a Waris Ahluwalia. ¿Ya has estado en casa de Waris? La verdad, la web que hace las veces de casa me pareció un poco lío. Pero un lío de esos que vale la pena rastrear más allá, en Google. “Sigan a ese chico”, decía el artículo del Vanity Fair. Pues allá vamos. Diseador de joyas, diseñador de corbatas, actor en películas de Wes Anderson, y gerente de una tienda de tés en el Meatpacking District de Manhattan. Ahí es nada:

“Amo la historia, dice Waris. Toda mi inspiración viene del amor y de la historia. Para cada cosa: para mi vida, para mi trabajo. No pretendo entederlas, porque para mí, no siempre tienen sentido, pero es lo que me inspira y me hace volver atrás en busca de más, en un intento por comprenderlas”.

Me gusta lo que encuentro cuando busco a Waris.

Waris Ahluwalia is not an actor. Well, not kind of a 100%. Have you watched The Darjeeling Limited?

House of Waris is the name of the website where Waris Ahluwalia feels at home on the Internet. Have you ever been there? To be honest, I found much more information after googling his name. “Follow this guy”, said the article published in the Spanish Vanity Fair. I so I Did.

Waris Ahluwalia is a multi-tasking kind of guy. Accidental jewellery designer, sometime actor and frequenter of New York’s style-setting scene, he recently opened a pot up tea room in New York’s most fashionable neighborhood: Meatpacking. But not only:

” ‘I love history,’ says Waris. ‘My inspiration for everything I do is love and history, for everything, my life and my work. I don’t claim to understand either of those, they make no sense to me but it’s what inspires me and what keeps me coming back for more, and trying to understand them.’
