Think about size. Is small always beautiful? No. Beautiful can be of any size.
Beautiful, here, need not be about the standard idea of bodily beauty. It could be inner beauty. It could be the beauty of new life – tiny in its size, but huge in its potential. It could be the beauty of a child who might be what is called an ‘old soul’ – someone who shows a promise and achievement beyond the years. A short, succinct phrase can often convey a meaning that might not really come across in a longer sentence.
It works the other way too. Many swear by the larger format of a test match, as against the T20 format that finishes much too soon – though that certainly has its own excitement.
It need not be the extremes of small or big either! An ordinary, everyday experience of life might conceal multitudes of beauty within, which might not be in a supposedly extraordinary one.
Women come in all sizes and shapes. It is not necessary that standard sizes in clothes available in the market fit all. This is the ordinary urban Indian woman’s experience – difficulties in finding a brand of clothes that fit her, on account of being a pear-shaped/tall willowy type/stocky body type. (You may consider your own body type here). You find that it is difficult to find clothes that fit you, which you need to get tailored every time, the effort eating into your already busy schedule.
Now imagine that there comes a brand that takes care of all these problems. They also offer mix-n-match options and options specific for your measurements. Won’t you want to explore them for wardrobe possibilities?
KAARYAH has a solution for all these problems – they offer wardrobe solutions for all body types.

Be it a working or a homemaker mother, every parent needs a support system to be able to manage their children, housework, and mental health.
Let me at the outset clarify that when I mention ‘work’ here, it includes ANY work. So, it could be the work at home done by a homemaker parent or it could be work in a professional/entrepreneurial environment.
Either way, every parent struggles to find that fine balance between ‘work’ and ‘parenting’, especially with younger kids who still need high emotional and physical support from their caretakers. And not just any balance, but more importantly, balance that lets them keep their own sanity intact!
Paromita advises all women to become financially independent, keep levelling up and have realistic expectations from life and relationships.
Heartfelt, emotional, and imaginative, Paromita Bardoloi’s use of language is fluid and so dreamlike sometimes that some of her posts border on the narration of a fable.
Her words have the power to touch the reader while also delivering some hard hitting truths. Paromita has no pretences in her writing and uses simple words which convey a wealth of meaning in the tradition of oral storytellers – no wonder, Paro is a much loved author on Women’s Web.
This June we celebrate twelve years of Women’s Web, a community built by you – our readers and contributors.
