Kalyani Magazine’s mission is to provide a voice to all those that remain voiceless. Kalyani Magazine encourages women of color to express their views, tell their experiences, and explore their feelings. Each issue explores a theme, using any writing style to evoke diverse ideas. Whether you just started writing yesterday, or finished your first book when you were two, your stories deserve to do more than just gather dust on your shelves. Submit your work to Kalyani Magazine.
It is named after my late grandmother, who was married in a village in India when she was nine years old. She would tell me about her wedding – the excitement she remembered at having a big party all for her. And about being sent to Madras to live with her husband, ten years her elder, once she hit puberty and raising seven daughters and zero sons. But any attempts I made to record or write her stories was met with a shrug or a laugh. She felt her life was just a boring, regular life – that she had no interesting story to tell.
