The collection is a rebellious stand against the narratives that have been written by a patriarchal society to picturise an ideal image of how a woman should be.
As the name suggests AADYA, takes us back to the forgotten pages of mythology, where indeed the ‘creator’ was a woman or ‘AADYA’. The collection narrates the stories of many such injustices and focuses on how
reality was so often morphed by patriarchy to mould stories to vacate their idea of righteousness to their convenience.
Whether, it be the story of Sita, Draupadi or Kali, in an often made attempt to make ’hero’ out of a ‘man’, Not only in mythology, till now how women gets suppressed under societal rule and we named it “Vidhi ka
Vidhan” to follow.
This collection attempts to bring forward a woman’s narrative, a woman’s
journey that often went unheard.
