Karisma Kapoor believes that the new generation of actors are blessed to have a huge pool of design and style talent to choose from.

Over the years, Karisma’s own fashion sense has evolved.


“I think it’s a great compliment,” Karisma told IANS here on the sidelines of the Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2019.

“Even though I am not actively doing films, people like my fashion sense. In that sense, it’s a personal style that has evolved over the years.

“Earlier, we had to wear what we were told in movies. Overtime, then I had a say in what I wanted to wear and what I didn’t want to wear. Today, there are so many talented designers and stylists out there, and today’s generation (actors) are very lucky to have the talent that they can use,” added the charismatic beauty.

She turned showstopper for Jaipur-based designer Punit Balana’s line ‘Maya’.

Calling his style “innovative and creative”, Karisma praised the fact that the designer uses eco-friendly fabrics and dyes.

“The most important thing is that he gives a chance to local artists to showcase their talent along with his own. His line ranges from western silhouettes to Indian styles and they are very wearable,” Karisma said.

Balana’s line is an ode to the French novel “Madame Bovary”. (IANS)

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.
