Designer Jyotika Jhalani under her label Janavi showcased luxurious shawls, woven from pure cashmere. There are pieces that feature the motif of evil’s eye in shades of navy, cobalt, and electric blue, layered against a canvas of pristine white and ivory.

“It’s very human to wonder if an evil eye has been cast upon us, during these uncertain times,” elaborates Jyotika, the designer.

“But, our evil eye talisman is to inspire an invigorating journey of self-discovery, a new awakening, and a brighter ‘eye’ to the future. It’s about dissipating stagnant heaviness, and bringing in fresh energy.”

Wars made sure to destroy evidence and heritage, and the ones who survived told the tale of what really happened. Folklore, albeit through oral tradition kept alive many such stories, hidden in verse, limericks, and rhymes.

Ringa-ringa-roses, a common playtime rhyme among children across the world, is an example of folklore that has survived for many centuries. It tells the story of the The Great Plague of London which ravaged the city between 1665-1666.

Certain tribes have remained matrilineal, where the decision-making power rests with the eldest female of the family.

In modern times, many social movements aim to bring reform to the society we live in, on the basis of certain existing patterns. Patriarchy is something that many aim to cleanse our cultures of, to usher in the era of social and gender equality. Despite all these so-called movements, in southern India, certain societies that patronise matriarchy have existed since before India's independence. The Nairs and Ezhavas of Kerala, and Bunts and Billavas of Karnataka are matrilineal societies that continue to thrive in a patriarchal country.

Kerala remains separate from the rest of India in many ways. Be it literacy policy, form of government, or cultural practices, this state does not always conform to the ideal that India is known for. Even so with their social structure. Certain tribes have remained matrilineal, where the decision-making power rests with the eldest female of the family.
