Ennile Maha oliyo - A.R.Rahman

Singers - sisters Rayhanah and Issrath Quadhri

Chorus:

Ennile Maha oliyo
(What a bright light in me) 
Ennile Maha oliyo
(What a bright light in me) 
Vinnile Isai thamizho
(Is it musical Tamil in heaven?) 
Isai thamizho
(Is it musical Tamil in heaven?) 

Endha nadhiyum, enthan nenjil
(When a river ends, it flows in my heart) 
Vandhu mudiyavum, enna vindhai
(It is witnessed by an ocean’s spate) 
Angu samudhiram ponga kandadhum
(What a wonder I realised of me… myself) 
Ennaye… thannaye… arindhen

Endhan mugamadhin arivai arindhida
(To know my external wisdom) 
Endhan agamadhin azhagai kandida
(To see my inner beauty) 
Suyamvaram vidu sudhandiram kodu
(Get rid of choice of consort, shower me with freedom) 
Vallamai… anniven… thuniven
(The power, I’ll wear… I’ll dare)

UPPING THE AUNTY - MEERA SETHI

I’ve always loved Meera Sethi's colourful and unique work but her 'Upping the Aunty' project really changed the game. 

'Upping the Aunty' celebrates the South Asian “aunty”; her personal style and unique role in our lives. Meera flips the script on street style, by focusing her lens on aunties with swag. 

Here are some of the awesome Auntys you can find on the Tumblr page

1. Anonymous Swag Aunty - Photo: Vivek Shraya

2. Rita Aunty - Photo: Meera Sethi

3. Gunalaxsmi Aunty - Photo: Meera Sethi

4. Sita Aunty - Photo: Meera Sethi

Meera is on the lookout for contributors to the project, so If you have an aunty whose style you love, send a new or vintage photo (with your aunty’s permission) over to art@meerasethi.com!

Upping the aunty has to be the one of the coolest tumblog.

"I’m an architect, and I’ve designed buildings all over the world. Every time I get a commission in an emerging market, I get excited about the opportunity to draw from the country’s heritage, culture, and art. But the client never wants it. They all want the same thing: ‘modern style, modern style, modern style.’ Everything has to be high and glassy. It’s almost as if everyone wants to hide their differences. It’s boring."

School Library

Gando • Burkina Faso

By Kéré architecture

The library’s ceiling is an innovative feature that makes good use of local technology. Clay pots, traditionally made by the women of the village, were brought to the site and cut, so as to be open at both the top and bottom. The pots were then cast into the concrete ceiling to create holes for light and ventilation.
