Letters from lovers! Liquor! Who knew pockets were such a fecund playground for the devil's antics, eh?

Of course I jest. Another wonderful piece. Thank you.

This was a great read. So happy to have come across this. Any books or more resources to read on elements of fashion and misogyny?

Dear Swarnali, Welcome back, although I have to say I feel connected to in friendship as well as a subscriber. A nice feeling πŸ₯°. I loved this week's post fascinating and on a lovely way opened my eyes to a topic I have never considered. I love my pockets at a utilitarian level, had not considered the deeper and wider cultural implications. Much love and appreciation to you. Axx

Fascinating story, Swarna! I've always wondered why women's clothing never has pockets...

Glad to see you're writing again :)

That was fascinating!!!! I never thought about pockets before. There is so much in this article that stirs my creative writing imagination.

And I am so relieved you have passed through your storm. I spun the prayer wheels for you and your dad every day at the temple, hoping I would soon read you were well.
