A modern take on the avatars of the Indian Goddesses, this beauty series is inspired by the fierceness of the deities in Hindu Mythology. The weapon of choice? Kohl or Kajal to ward off the evil eye. The story is a juxtaposition between history and modernity, a representation of what today's mighty "Goddesses" might personify.
Poet, Varsha Lakshiminarayan, takes us on an evocative journey that explores the power held within these dark eyes.
My beaded black eyes, in a colour that does not
hold the ocean nor the hazel sky, but so dark and
pit less that you are forced to see something more.
Uncaged I am like water,
neither as white as snow nor as dark as the night.
I wallow in between muddled.
My colour is that of sand, that which made me, that i shall become.
