“I vow to make excuses when you humiliate me in public
to forsake my friends and family when you isolate me
to value myself less when you belittle me.
I vow to blame myself when you hit me
And to fear for my safety and the safety of my children
Till death do us part.”
I am Durga& Kali.
Love, Respect & Protect me.
Or else I will.
This collection is an empowering stand against domestic violence, which permeates through social, economic, professional, religious boundaries
Our concept note above outlines the physical, sexual, psychological nature and definition of domestic violence, and alongside upholds the three pillars on which a marriage stands- Love, respect and protecting each other. It also reminds the women (and warns men) that they have the power of the goddesses Durga and Kali, and can stand up against violence and protect themselves.
Some strong motifs that invoke the power of the goddesses are swords, knives and the trishul, weapons of the goddesses themselves, all intricately worked, beautiful and grand like wedding jewels traditionally given to a bride, and yet, symbols of empowerment. The underlying message is also to the families that their daughter’s trousseau must be strength, support and knowledge, and not just gold.
Adi Shakti is the primodial power, and is personified by the divine feminine creative power, or the Mother Goddess. She is the goddess of creation, change, balance and liberation. On one hand She stands for power, love and compassion; and on the other, destruction of evil.
The Adi Shakti earrings are meant to remind you of the same powers within you at all times.
