It just so happened that when I visited @kalamkaari , Shruthi had just finished a workshop on Chekutty. Thats where my Chekutty came from she has been with me for a few months now.. Chekutty is a doll upcycled from the Chendamangalam handloom sarees that were destroyed during the Kerala floods.
The weavers clean the textile with chroline and fresh water and dry it. Approximately 360 Chekutty’s can be made from a six metre saree.. "A mascot of the emerging Keralam, being rebuilt through our solidarity, resilience and beauty of hearts despite some of the stains and scars that will remain in our lives. Chekkutty has scars.Chekkutty has stains. But Chekutty represents each one of us who survived the floods"

• Chasing History Pt. 1 •
|| Kochi is impossible to be explored in a week alone! Just 2 days in hand, monsoon rain made it worse, had to cancelled both Munnar trip & houseboat plan.. so what do you do next? Google to the rescue! At the end of the search, the list included more museums and monuments!! No doubt, my Kochi trip was turning into a "History Trip" 🤷♀️
The last in my checklist for the day, Paravur Synagogue AKA locally known Parur Synagogue is an open treat for history enthusiasts! The oldest and largest synagogue complex in Kerala since 17th c., now a museum under Muziris Heritage Project, is a blend of traditional Jewish and Kerala architectural style. The highlights are the padippura (traditional arched gateway) at the entrance, and a separate balcony-cum-gallery for women to assemble for prayer service-meeting connected through a staircase from outside (only to be used by women!). - Info from the museum guide ||
KMEA College of architecture has announced CARDEX'18, a grand event at Oberon Mall from December 22 to 23. The event comprises of handmade cards exhibition, musical night and other entertainment programmes.
