Day 7: Halakki Vokkaliga drape of Karnataka
.
.
This is my most favorite drape so far; it's simple, pretty and the flowy, wrapped-around saree made me feel really pretty! ❤️ Swipe left 👈🏼 to see how the drape looks in the back!
.
.
Halaki Vokkaligas are the tribal agriculturalists of Karnataka and I have come across a few of them, during my college days in Bangalore, who were more often than not extremely poor, often resorted to living on alms! 😔
.
.
The state of agriculture and farmers in India isn't something I have to educate you about, let alone talk about the plight of Vokkaligas or other tribes where are into farming! I'm not saying we should all come to the roads and fight for them. Although I whole-heartedly respect those who do so, it's probably not feasible for all of us for so many reasons.
.
.
But the least we can do is support them when they make efforts to opt for a decent living! Big or small, try to shop directly from these tribal people for the gorgeous clothing and jewelry they sell; try to treat them with respect the next time you come across them; try not to bargain for that fifty rupees when you get a lovely piece of jewelry from that Korathi(tamil tribal woman) in Mylapore Tank next time, especially when you don't complain paying five hundred bucks for a small pizza not to mention the additional two hundred rupees as taxes! 😐 .
.
These efforts might not be big but they do make a difference in the lives of the people involved!
Have a nice week ahead, y'all!!

In these ancient, cobblestone Portuguese streets.

We moved from Obidos to Tomar. Tomar is the home the UNESCO Convent of Christ, a site of the Knights of Templar. You can see the versions of both sects crosses all over the town.

We are not apart of nature, we are a part of nature. and to betray nature is to betray us, to save nature is to save us.
