In this Mother’s Day edition of Kanakavalli Vignettes, we meet Akhila Ravikumar and her mother Girija Radhakrishnan, who we found busy stitching masks together to distribute to essential workers in their neighbourhood. In this delightful conversation, Akhila shares her mother’s memories of a carefree childhood followed by a life on the move as the wife of a naval officer. Akhila draws strength and inspiration from her mother’s dynamic personality; her ability to adapt to every challenge and make the most of every experience.
In the midst of their face mask sewing project Akhila and Girija take the time to browse through the Kanakavalli repertoire to curate a selection of kanjivarams that embody their sense of beauty. Shop the curation right here, and read the entire conversation on our journal.
