Kayamai

The word Kayamai in ancient Tamil literature means lowness, spiteful, vengeful. The word so old, encompasses the plight of women and other marginalized communities in today’s time so well thus the name and it aims to be the voice of the unheard. It started as simple scribbles behind a mathematics notebook and now the vision has grown into a platform that breaks the glass ceilings to discuss things that are a taboo via art and heal the human mind with art as a medium. KAYAMAI IS YOU! KAYAMAI IS US! Kayamai is made up of the rebels who do not play by the rules but fight everyday for a just society.
