Bring out your inner Goddess with these beautiful Durga inspired designs!!

Durga, also known as Shakti or Devi is one of the most popular goddesses among the Hindus. She represents strength, morality, power and protection. She is the divine mother, who protects people from evil forces of selfishness, jealousy, hatred, anger and ego. Durga means something that is invincible or one who can redeem in situations of utmost distress. She is the supremely radiant goddess who has ten arms, rides on a lion, carries weapons and a lotus flower. She is an embodiment of feminine force (Shakti) and creative energy. Durga is the warrior aspect of the Divine Mother. Other incarnations of Durga include Annapurna and Karunamayi. Durga’s darker aspect is called Kali.

Since it is that time of the year again! Time for Devi Durga to grace us with her presence and light up our lives with lights, music, celebrations and of course, oodles of style!

सारे जहाँ से अच्छा, हिन्दोसतां हमारा…

A beautiful story from Laila Tyabji whose father was a civil servant in the Constituent Assembly. “When people realised India was going to be independent in a couple of months and we needed a national emblem. So, Jawaharlal Nehru turned to her father and said, “Badr, you have an eye for this sort of thing, please do something about it…” Her father set up a Flag Committee headed by Rajendra Prasad, and sent letters to all the art schools asking them to prepare designs. Hundreds came in, all quite ghastly. Most of them heavily influenced by the British national emblem, except that elephants and tigers, or deer and swans replaced the lion and unicorn on either side of the British crown. The crown itself was replaced by a lotus or kalash or something similar.

Time was ticking along and everyone in the Committee (Nehru was keenly involved and extremely unhappy with the designs coming in) were getting a bit desperate, when suddenly, her parents had this brainwave of the lions and chakra on top of the Ashoka column. (They both loved the sculpture and ethos of that period). So, her mother drew a graphic version and the printing press at the Viceregal Lodge (now Rashtrapati Niwas) made some impressions and everyone loved it. Of course, the four lions (Lion Capital of Ashoka) have been our emblem ever since.

Meanwhile, without thinking too much about it, everyone had assumed that the Congress tricolour flag designed by Pingali Venkayya, with Gandhiji’s charkha in the middle, would be the national flag. Our independence struggle had been fought under its banner. However, there was opposition to a party flag representing the nation. So, her parents were tasked with re-doing the flag, and they took the same Ashoka chakra and put it on the tricolour. Once it was done, it all seemed so natural and obvious. Originally, her mother had painted a black chakra, but Gandhiji objected so it became navy blue.”

Here are some of our designs that are inspired by the Lion:

Simha Lion Kada:

Designed as two intricately carved lion heads on an engraved hand carved kada. This is a unisex kada and can be worn by both men and women. Mounted in Sterling Silver.

 

LION KADA

 

 

This kada has foliate carvings along the body ending with two lion head terminals. This is a unisex Kadas and can be worn by both men and women.

The Lotus :

The Makers of our Indian Constitution decided to put a symbol that on one hand exemplifies spiritual emancipation of the Human Soul but at the same time on the other hand holds the promise that our country’s (and her people’s) origins hold a spiritual and not a materialistic promise for growth and liberation. Hence the Lotus which is a divine symbol in India; its unfolding petals suggest the expansion of the Human Soul; the growth of its pure beauty from the mud of its origin holds a benign spiritual promise.
