Medium will be spinning some tales and weaves at The Sanctuary curated by the intriguing @anahitakayan . We want to give you a little sneak peak into The Jamban Journals, the documentation of some spectacular women. And as we sat back, watching them own their environment and flaunt their drapes, we captured some behind behind-the-scenes - 2 instaxes, two memoirs. One for the women, and one for us. We are laying out these instaxes in an effort to expose the beautiful journey that has brought us to our hometown, Calcutta to exhibit at @theindiastory . Come and be a part, as we wait to unfold our side of the story.@thekokemonster for The JamBan Journals.

The photographer smiled. “What do you see?” she asked the designer.“Us? Our self portraits, just the way we wanted it.” The photographer nodded. “I see four self portraits.”The designer was taken aback. “How?” she asked, looking at the two faces staring back. The photographer pointed at their faces “ You, and me.” Then her finger trailed over the sarees they wore. “ Your creation.” And then she flicked the photo. “And my creation.”.I make sarees for a living. Because I can’t think of another way to live right now. And to be able to wear what I make, feels like being able to paint myself or photograph myself. It’s like heading out to the fields to sow seeds that will later turn into food that will my plate. I make sarees. I wear sarees.

The ExperimentThey were there to craft a self portrait in its truest form. One that would equal an artist painting himself. For, capturing of the self required it to be at it’s most elemental, natural form. Like the photographer taking her own photo. And the designer being captured, dressed in her own creation. It was as simple and complicated as that. They’d been calculating it and devising the perfect way to do it for hours together. They’d dragged in a large mirror and placed it in the sunlight. And as they huddled together before it, the two women felt a thrill rush through them. Poised before the reflective surface, they gazed into their own images and then into the camera, again met by their own figures. It was surreal.Click! The first shot was followed by nervous laughter.“It’s okay. Just ease up a little bit,” the photographer assured the designer. “This feels a bit weird” she admitted shyly. The designer was used to models wearing her sarees but this was the first time she was posing for her own creation. The photographer was slightly more confident, and guided the expedition...The Jamban Journals is a dedicated documentation of journeys – Of Women and our Sarees.

The Self Portrait.The two women sat adjacent to each other, engaged in a very loud silence. One held a camera and the other held her gaze. They were both dressed in coordinated sarees and shades of red. One wore a drape that had a simple grey body and stark red pallu with baandhini trails that ended with a silver border. A contrast blue bindhi glowed against her forehead. The other one was in a red tie-dyed silk saree with a blue and red striped pallu that had similar silver motifs woven into them. The photographer and the designer were still, but an intent rushed through their heads...The Jamban Journals is a dedicated documentation of journeys – Of Women and our Sarees.

It was not everyday that a political scientist and Associate Editor at a leading lifestyle magazine decided to explore her green thumb. But that’s exactly what she did. Because she knew something that most did not - That thoughts made people who they were. She was easy to spot in a crowd. Her tie-dye Saree with its jaggedly woven ‘pallu’ loosely draped over her shoulder, she would smile at you as if she was holding a pleasurable secret. But it’s no secret. She is simply a connoisseur enjoying the exhibition her mind has laid out for her. From the minds of the most brilliant woman arise patterns and revolutions. Systems and transformations. The sari is a symbol of the juxtaposition of a woman’s mind. It is sentiment and practicality. Spirituality and sensuality. Structure and flexibility. Chaos and Solace. It is a nine yard exhibition of inspiration in its rawest form...The Jamban Journals is a dedicated documentation of journeys – Of Women and our Sarees.

Her mind was never really quiet. The weather was turbulent and it was constantly at the brink of a thought-storm. The idea of ‘calm’ was just so ephemeral. Fleeting, perhaps but always there, right in the middle of all that chaos. Where she went to pluck her ideas and carve them out and hone them in. Sometimes the thoughts led nowhere. Circular and reminiscent, like about Bombay in the days gone by. Milk being delivered in glass bottles, the ice-cream parlours of Churchgate and gas street lamps would rush at her in sepia tones. Then there were days, when she would feel like a bird watcher, hiding out on the Western Ghats and waiting on the Malabar Parakeet. And she’d spot it. A flutter of inspiration. Like the one that had led her to start a boutique flower shop. She called it “Bageecha”. Or the one that led her down the road to do a doctorate in the social sciences...The Jamban Journals is a dedicated documentation of journeys – Of Women and our Sarees.

The Thought Collector She was a curator of myriad of things - And in the process of documenting the varied fraying threads of time, she had collected an array of friends of differing ages and thinking, books, objects and some people-like objects. Her house was more than a structure carved out of brick and mortar. It was a testimonial to all the beauty that her eyes had sought out to preserve. She was a warm woman and she liked to surround herself with flowers and smiles. And so, she could often be found entertaining guests. But as unobtrusively as possible, so as to not interfere with the careful arrangement of culture around the corners of her house. Painted wooden statues (life-sized and life-filled) and splashes of colour on canvas and her tomes gave her company on the days she stayed in. The house was never really quiet...The Jamban Journals is a dedicated documentation of journeys – Of Women and our Sarees.

In the early 90’s the Rani was on one of her annual vacations to India when she was ‘spotted’ and shot for a Bombay Dyeing campaign. She was suddenly the new girl everybody wanted to work with. It was the beginning of a very simple ideology: That life was for her. Not against her. And this soon turned into a prayer that acted like a lasso to pull the things that she wanted toward her. And whenever the road got a little bumpy, she’d hear the whispers from corners of her mind she’d painted yellow: “Keep going. You’re doing great Lisa Rani.” Prayers have a very tangible, touchable form – Love. To love, therefore, in a way is to offer tribute. The way the Sari is draped, is a method of worship on it’s own. The gentle folds, the reassuring tucks, the encouraging pleats all streamline towards the offering of tribute to one’s body. And as the fabric kisses skin, it whispers to it “Keep going, you’re doing great…”...The Jamban Journals is a dedicated documentation of journeys – Of Women and our Sarees.

People are always told that for good things to happen to you, you need to believe in them. They say you attract the good. But the summer of 2009 was far from it. That summer was confined within the white, white walls of the hospital room. Her father slept in a cot while she was going through her stem cell transplant. And she could almost hear the words emanating from his pores “Keep going. You’re doing great, Rani.” Like a little prayer. And she believed it. Things got better. Because she believed they would. And sometimes, your beliefs are so powerful in attracting the kindness of the universe towards you.Even when you did not know what you wanted until you got it...The Jamban Journals is a dedicated documentation of journeys – Of Women and our Sarees.

The Rani The footprints of her childhood must have surely mingled with her fingerprints for they seemed to follow her everywhere. From the letters in her name to the whispers of her ancestors, they were not just observing her profile, but constantly participating in everything she did. And as she whizzed from movie sets to magazine shoots, she could always feel a little embrace that always seemed to say, “Keep going. You’re doing great, Rani”. Rani - Queen. The word has such deep connotations mapped across India. Surrounded by a culture imbibed with stories of courageous and strong-headed Queens who went to war with their swords blazing, she knew very well what it meant to be one. And everytime her father, wearing a fond smile, said “My Lisa Rani” it no longer mattered if she were five, fifteen or thirty-five. It always sounded the same. And it always sounded like an inheritance of courage...The Jamban Journals is a dedicated documentation of journeys – Of Women and our Sarees.
