At Khurpi, we say we dig deep into everything. We don’t believe in reading the surface but in deep analysis of what’s happening around us. We question at every step and focus on the solutions. Why politics is mired with cynicism today? Why ethnocultural identities prosper even in the age of globalisation? Why we continue to live in a gendered world where patriarchy is still very much the norm? Why it’s not possible to understand and analyse gender and gender relations in isolation? Why personal stories of random citizens matter to weave a world of meaning? At Khurpi we attempt to answer questions like these.
Khurpi, is an enduring agricultural tool used more by women field workers for nikauni/kelauni, i.e., weeding unwanted grasses from the crops. Our focus here is something similar; to weed out meaningless from the meaningful.
