The Rajasthani safa is a fantastic symbol of the state. However, as I tour through the cities and small towns of this royal state, the millennials here use it on occasions only.
A culture starts fading when it’s symbols become mere accessories.
I am afraid if they have learnt to tie one or would need to google that! What is an everyday affair for the elders in the communities here and a symbol representing multiple meanings is now just another accessory!
A culture erodes as the very defining elements lose their importance in the people.
India needs a cultural renaissance. A movement to reconnect to our cultures, appreciate their essence and making them part of our daily lives.
