History[ edit ] Ganesha, Basohli miniature, circa It is unclear when the festival started, it became a major social and public event with sponsorship of Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj after Mughal-Maratha wars, and again in the 19th century after public appeal by Indian freedom fighter Lokmanya Tilak who championed it as a means to circumvent the colonial British government ban on Hindu gatherings through its anti-public assembly legislation in Ganesha The earliest mention of Ganapati, but not referring to the current Ganesha or Vinayaka, is found in the Rigveda.
Nevertheless, I thought, surely there is one relationship that is too sacred to be defiled by gossip? Surely, basic decency would prevent people from making this one special relationship the subject of their nosy speculations; the relationship between a woman and her Dupatta.
Sadly, that isn't the case. You see, my Dupatta has recently been despondent. Drooping at the hem, its mukaish seemed more dull and the curves of its paisley embroidery less cheerful than before. I knew it was time for a talk. Dupatta signed when I suggested that, and fell into a dejected silence.

And now, we could very well leave each other. But we choose to stay together. But what about when you go out without me? Your name comes from Sanskrit, and your ancestors can be traced back to Mohenjodaro, and that was long before Islam.
What do those people know about us? Remember our first week at college? I bet they never imagined you and I ever subverted gender roles together. My dear, I really think no amount of cloth and no style of clothing are ever going to stop harassment and assault.
