It seems to be men who transport these colourful bangles all over the cities and villages…rainbow fragility on women’s wrists that are given in fours at religious festivals,and adorn, in dozens, a pregnant woman’s arms. Women pride themselves on wrists that can acommodate smaller bangles, while the bangles are often used as a major insult in our men-are-dominant culture. Made of plastic, metal, and sometimes the finest glass..these circlets are an integral part of our culture and heritage. Valley School, 05 Sept 2015.
