Daughter, one of the most precious title a woman can have. Because no matter what happens your parents will always have your back. So what does it mean to be a daughter in our Bangladeshi community? That definition is different for everyone but this is my story. .
Growing up you were overprotective of everything I did. But I wish I had known what I know now. For every fight we had because I hung out with the wrong crowd or wagged school. I wish I had known what I know now. Every cruel word said to you to really hurt you because you had warned me about the world, I wish I had known what I know now. I didn’t realise the type of woman you were raising. I was so short sighted! You’ve taught me so many valuable lessons in life which I’ll cherish forever. You gave me a new definition to being a daughter in our culture. You taught me the true value of preserving our culture; the right way, you got me into sports, taught me to drive and change tires, how to put together furniture, take care of finances, lead the pack and really be the man of the house. As much as you kept me under your wing you also let me fly. Our biggest test was when you let me leave home at 24 and really put everything you taught me to practice. After everything I’ve put you through I still remember the day of my Nikkah, you bawled your eyes out. I was trying to fight back tears but seeing you like that broke my heart. And my heart breaks every time I think about that night knowing what I’ve put you through. It really is true, parents love is unconditional. .

“Omg is that from Anthropologie? I have something just like it!”
✔️Appropriation vs. Appreciation. Many brands (like Anthropologie and Free People) have profited off of South Asian culture and designs. We get it, our clothes are beautiful! But we believe that those brands should acknowledge where their inspiration is coming from and use their platform to educate their consumer on the culture and origins of the inspiration. Let us know what you think! (Also, how much do we love this Rajasthani silk bag?! 😍)
