A deleted scene from Gowri Arumugam’s Kanmani music video has revealed a meaningful message which is commonly faced by women within the Indian community.
The scene where it’s all about the Hindu rite-of-passage ceremony called Valaikappu or Seemantham performed during the seventh month of a mother’s first pregnancy. During the ceremony, Gowri who plays a barren woman role was pushed aside by her relatives due to cultural norms which were imposed by our ancestors. However, Pashini’s message has served as an eye-opener to our own community, especially to such conservative elders.
In the 21st century, I personally believe that blessings and good intentions are utmost important to be incorporated in such auspicious ceremonies. Kudos to Gowri Arumugam on being bold and getting the message across.
