DIY Ravanna, Durga Clutches & Kali Wallets

Check out our new website at!

Ravanna burning bright
In the city of the night,

What immortal hand or eye,
Could frame thy ten-headed symmetry.

If you missed the sight of ten demon heads burning in Mumbai yesterday, you should build your own blazing Ravanna. The crafty kit from Little Creative Mind teaches you how to make a demon from scratch.

Follow the instructions, and you’ll find yourself staring at a grand 3D purple and yellow paper Ravanna with an even grander mustache. Ten heads, ten evil smiles, and one scathing sword will follow. Setting it ablaze, is optional.

Getting there: Buy it at Crossword Bookstores for Rs 199.

If you’re looking for ready-made mythology, head to Fluke at Bandra. In this house of worship-worthy hand-painted everything, you’ll find Goddess Durga’s delicate features paint brushed across a sleek leather clutch bag, sans her usual ten arms, tiger and lotus (Rs 2,000 onwards). Sharing the altar is the fiery Kali devi. This Goddess of change watches over wallets (Rs 900).

Getting there:
Fluke Design Studio, Shop 7, Rafi Mansion, 28th Road, Gurunanak Park, Bandra (W). Call: 26438087.
