A strong women's day message from the strong women of Tamil Nadu, India.
Revathi (Asha Kelunni Nair), veteran actress, director & social worker, "Ask me, about me, on screen. How do I bring those characters out?"
Dr. Sarita Dasari, "(Ask me not) why I chose career over bringing up my kids, but how I managed both."
DeeDee (Dhivyadharshini), TV host, "Ask me not what you want to hear. Ask me what I want to say."
Jaya Devi Cholayil, CEO & social entrepreneur, "Ask me not about the state of women in my country, but what I'm doing to change that.
Jullaaha, applauds these women, and all the other women out there, who go after their dreams despite all the obstacles.

We can’t all become technical experts in every art and craft that we admire and hope to acquire a piece off. So, what do we do?
Through her varied and personal experience with Indian handcrafted textiles, over a decade, Jaya Devi Cholayil, offers you these simple distinguishing factors. A deep knowledge of the artistic techniques and textile crafting processes lies behind the quick litmus tests that she shares here.
As a newlywed, almost 30 years ago, Jaya was introduced to the world of Ayurveda and the Cholayil culture of combining natural, ethically sourced ingredients to create products that started lifestyle trends.
Given her love for art and her compassion for the less fortunate, Jaya Devi decided to take this heritage one step further and thus was born Jullaaha. A brand that is loved and respected as much for its all-natural personal care products and authentic, Indian, handcrafted textiles as it is for its work in bettering the lives of the down-trodden.
Block printing, as we know it today, is thought to have originated in China; though this art form has probably been practiced for close to 2,000 years.
After Vasco Da Gama discovered the shipping route to India in 1498, most of the world came to know of the beautiful textiles of India and this gave a boost to all related industries including that of the traditional block print.
TRADITION FOR TODAY'S MODERN WOMAN. INSPIRATION FOR TOMORROW.
