Shabnam Jhola


The shabnam jhola was a part of India's culture for a very long time. In the Post Independence era, this jhola became a symbol for many. Though the jhola existed far before the movie Shabnam was released, it was made popular as 'Shabnam' by it as Dilip Kumar and Actress Kamini would be seen wearing it in the movie which released in 1949. The jhola has been a companion for numerous noted journalists, activists, social workers, poets, students and a whole generation of Indians.

Over the years the ways changed and a Shabnam which accompanied the person everywhere he or she went lost its place in our lives. The easily available carry bags which were handed to us at every grocery and store became the status quo.
