Tripura Village has a new fashion influencer in town: the story of the unconventional Neel Ranaut

Where is Sarbajit Sarkar aka Neel Ranaut from?


Sarbajit Sarkar also known as Neel Ranaut unlike many entered the world of couture unconventionally. He is from a small village called Teliamura in the Khowai district of Tripura.

His childhood

Neel who has a background in BA LLB shared in a recent interview, how growing up in his family and town was. He said, “My demeanour is girlish since childhood. During the occasions or family functions, my parents and relatives used to taunt me with their negative comments for my feminine fashion sense and so was the case with my friends.”

How did this person shoot for fame?

Neel spoke about the beginning of his social media work. Neel shared, “I started making TikTok videos with my grandmother while I was in college. In 2018, I recreated various outfits with whatever resources or accessories were available and this was the only thing that provided me utmost satisfaction”.

When it came to the initial phase. Neel spoke up about the lack of acceptance he got from those around him. He said, “They simply made up their mind that I am a nerd who was just wasting time”. He further added, “Moreover, our neighbours never let their kids play with me, but that never really stopped me from making videos on social media. I was trolled and bullied badly on a regular basis for feminine fashion but I always chose the path of ignorance to move further.”

Speaking about how he came up with his looks in the beginning. Neel said, “I picked up some worn out petticoats and blouses from my grandmother’s cupboard, and the outcome was an average piece. But I was happy and satisfied. I did this regularly before starting to recreate the garments of celebrities from scratch using earthly materials like leaves, sticks, stones, flowers, etc”. He attempted to immigrate famous celebrity looks.

What Neel wants to see in the future

Neel despite all the hardships concluded by saying “There should be no distinctions between what men and women should wear”. He added, “People are now supporting me on my journey and participating with me in my creations, which indicates that society is moving in the right direction of growth”. Neel deeply believes in gender equality and he wants people to stop labelling others as straight or gay and recognise everyone as normal individuals.
