NILAA'S BANGLES

2023
Written by Brintha Vaikundan
Illustrated by Vidya Lalgudi Jaishankar

This project holds a special place given its proximity to my culture. 

The author, a Sri Lankan Tamil, and I, from Tamil Nadu, India, share a cultural background, aiding in crafting authentic visuals with vibrant colours, through memories, research, and photographs to capture Jaffna's true essence, predating the war.

The story unfolds as Nilaa and her grandfather embark on an eventful journey through the streets of Jaffna, Sri Lanka, predating the civil war, to buy bangles during the festive season.
