What is the significance of bangles in Indian culture as presented in the poem The Bangle Sellers By Sarojini Naidu?
As Sarojini Naidu has depicted it, bangles are directly connected to the happiness and well-being of a family in the traditional Indian society. People buy bangles for their daughters and wives, on occasions like fairs to make them look good and make them happy. Women also find joy in wearing bangles. Naidu has presented how various colours of bangles match the emotions and aspirations of a woman in various stages of her life. In short, bangles are an integral part of woman life, be it a maiden, a bride on her marriage ceremony or a middle aged woman who has journeyed through life. To express the happiness connected with bangles, Naidu calls them “lustrous tokens of radiant lives.” Bangles also play an important part in keeping the cultural traditional of the Indian society.
Bangles play an important role in Indian Society as they express the emotions of Indian women as they go through their lives. They also tell others the status of the wearer through colours.
