Culture Wrappings IV: Closeted Puja  

The home mandir is integral to daily living. It’s your ‘last stop’ before you start your day and before you go to bed. If something good happens, you go here to show your gratitude. When something challenging or terrible happens, you come here for comfort and strength. 


Culture Wrappings: Sanskar aur Parampara (Culture and Tradition)

I would argue that we were raised to see the best parts of our culture and that some of it was made visible via Bollywood. However, this was a world we visited rather than took at face value as the life we should be expected to lead. It is that which has allowed me to hold these films dear whilst still being critical.


Culture Wrappings

Culture and religion aren’t merely things you carry with you. For some reason, I thought they were just two significant chunks of the building material shaping the me-ness. But I learned over time that they are things which largely exist in boxes. 


The Emotional Onion

It’s an ingredient which crosses – cultural, political, geographical – boundaries and yet it does not show a lesser degree of respect wherever it goes.


poco.lit. community event

We founded poco.lit. just before the start of the Corona pandemic. That’s why we’ve only had a few opportunities to meet you in real life. We would like to change that now and create an opportunity to get to know you: We cordially invite you to our first poco.lit. Community Event with a reading stage.
