I have been trying to challenge myself into trying out new things, experiencing different things and feeling different things.
And quite appropriately, Navratri began yesterday – a nine-day festival of supplication, worship and thanksgiving.
The festival prominently celebrated in Gujarat, Maharashtra, West Bengal and Karnataka symbolizes the triumph of good over evil.
It marks Goddess Durga’s victory over demon Mahishasura. Long story but the short of it is that I’m looking forward to a weeklong of blessings and fullness of joy.
And what a time to be alive. An entire year of battles, triumphs,progress, setbacks wins and losses. This week couldn’t have come at a better time.
This entire month, I have challenged myself to wear Sarees in different styles. I have particularly taken a keen interest in representing vibes from my two worlds; my Kenyan and Indian identities.
I wore a lesso-inspired Saree to the Nairobi Flea Market yesterday to start off the month-long Saree marathon.
Do let me know what you think of the first shot in the comment section below.
Love & lite.
