Blues and reds of raw silk combined with ivory coloured cotton woven in Arunachal Pradesh
When I was watching Finding Dory, I decided I will make a mora celebrating the theme of memory and family. And somehow celebrate the lightness with which these themes were carried out in the film.
The dupatta is the family aspect with all the colours, patterns, stripes, lines streaming into each others. Method in the madness. Of course, remembering Dory and Marlin, a family looking for a family!
The Kalidaar as ivory cotton many layered fluid form is the void of presence or absence of a memory.
Together they make this ensemble I call “finding Dory”, lighthearted yet essential!
Young Dory: Hi. I'm Dory. I suffer from short-term "remembory" loss.
Dory: Please help me find my family.
Nemo: Yeah, Dad, you can get us all the way across the ocean. Right?
Marlin: No... But I know a guy.
Dory: What is so great about plans? I never had a plan! Did I plan to lose my parents? No. Did I plan to find Marlin? No. Did you and I plan to meet? Wait. Did we?
Hank: Are you almost done?
Dory: Well, I don't think we did. And that's because the best things happen by chance. Because that's life. And that's you being with me out in the ocean not safe in some stupid glass box.
Hank: You know something? I have no idea why you're even doing this.
Dory: What do you mean?
Hank: It seems like a lot of trouble just to find some more fish. If I had short-term memory loss, I'd just swim off into the blue and forget everything.
Dory: I don't wanna do that. I-I want my family.
