The Chappal Project

(Ongoing) 2020

'Chappal' means 'slipper' in Marathi, my native language

Chappal was made to bridge the distance between my hometown Goa-India and my new home in Minneapolis-MN.

 

Chappal is now an independent female character with a voice of her own.

 

Backstory : In March 2020 I found out that I will not make the flight home in May 2020, news that broke my spirit because going home was my way of rejuvenating, recharging and feeling loved after a long and isolationist Minneapolis Winter.

 

It would be Summer in Goa-India in May and I was anticipating walks through local towns, fish markets and beaches, soaking my feet in a deep sense of place.
