Basic medicines:
get two or three strips of each (enough to last at least a year):

Cold- Crocin+ ANTIBIOTICS IN CASE YOU FALL SICK – (ask your doctor)

Headache- disprin etc.

Lenses (watever you wear hard or soft: for soft get as many as you can, its expensive here plus you will need a doctor's prescription for everything)

Lens solution (get some bottles)

Get an extra pair of glasses made.

Dulcolax (for all the fish and chips that you'll be eating)

Iodex + cold cough balm

Anti-allergies

Dependal+ Perinom (very very important- first few days it will be a change of season you'll get nauseous)

Pudin Hara if you like

Hot water bottle

Clothes

Jeans (levis is way out of the budget here and you don’t get the right fitting, plus alteration costs a lot)
Its better and cheaper in INDIA, get it now!

Shoes

Sports shoes + chappals (buy formal shoes here, they will cost a bit but they last long).

Get a pair of high fancy shoes if you like for the beginning thin high heels. Get covered shoes, it will be cold by the time you get here. If you don't like heels you can get formal flat shoes ( importance and priority: comfort).

Socks (skin color and thick ones you'll die in the cold otherwise).

Casual wear like tee- shirts, informal or semi formal shirts .

Buy office wear when you come here depending on the style and what is in vogue: shop at Zara.

Accessories:

Office Bag
Belt

Linen:

Bed sheets (one set)
Bed cover (o ne is enough) ( get cotton one- easy to carry and takes much less space)
Pillow covers
Quilt cover
Towels

This is all the basic stuff to help you settle in, rest is upto you how much luggage space and weight you are allowed.
For food: its better if you cook, it doesnt have to be elaborate sweets, eggs, bread, frozen foods to begin with and eventually you can shop for everything.
Take it easy on your luggage in case you have to commute on your own from the airport.
Travel light: One suitcase and one stroller: easy to manage.
