Editorial (February 2019)

Dear Readers,

We are at the brink of summer again! Within no time, we will be playing Holi and putting back our woolens, bringing out the floral summer wear.

Gosh, how time flies!

February has been an eventful month for Eyra. March will be even more so. We announced our collaboration with Lean In India in some exciting events in the months to come. March being the month of International Women’s Day, we have planned conferences and activities, especially for working women. Please keep track of our social media handles to keep abreast of the events.

In this month’s issue, we bring you a variety of topics as usual. ‘Period. End of Sentence’ just won an Oscar, starting a train of thought about why menstruation has a stigma attached to it. We bring you a piece on what it means to be a woman and to be told that though it is very important to have it to continue the world, it is at the same time disgusting and impure, something we should be ashamed of.

We also have an honest review of the movie Manikarnika, not from a directorial or acting perspective, but from the story’s essence, about how women have these ghosts of expectations standing over our heads. Next is a deep and beautiful piece by Samarth Narayanan about how perfection can be found in our imperfections and what does beauty really mean. Then we have a thought-provoking piece about women and how they end up associating their own happiness with external factors, despite the strength they carry within them.  Lastly, in our artist section, we talk about the play ‘Mughal-e-Azam‘ which will again be hitting the road soon.

Hope you enjoy our articles as always.
