Indian Traditional Art forms create a new perspective in Individuals, By Kajal Srivastava, Founder Tavasi Movement

Everybody already understands that martial arts give a person a sense of strength. Nevertheless, what many individuals are unaware of is that it may also make them feel emotionally strong. Such preparation is physically difficult, and it also necessitates dedication and fortitude.

Martial arts encourages people to be honest, persistent, disciplined, secure, and valiant amid their concerns. Though these may appear to be characteristics of a psychological development program, they are important components of their emotional maturity.

These Arts are an excellent form of activity since they provide several therapeutic benefits. They offer the road for individuals to attain their complete capacity, from overall fitness to mental and physical enhancement.

We came upon one such style of Indian traditional martial art, Kalaripayattu, the oldest martial art in India, as we investigate further. It dates back to the 4th century BC in Kerala. Kalari is a Malayalam term that signifies Practice Arena where Martial Arts are performed or taught, and it has a specific connotation behind it.

Kalaripayattu, apart from it, is a contemporary martial art intended for use in a war. Attacks, throws, grabs, and predefined forms are all included. The armaments are exceedingly light, allowing for both flexibility and agility. Experts in the field make use of their expertise in the physical body’s trigger points. Kalaripayattu is also documented to have been performed by women in ancient Kerala.

During our brief exploration of this martial art discipline, we come across Ms. Kajal Srivastava, the founder of the Kalaripayattu awareness platform Tavasi Moment.

She explains the significance of this initiative to us “Tavasi, which means ‘courage,’ is an initiative to construct a life for oneself free of guilt for not living according to society’s expectations. It’s about overcoming our inner lack of self-worth and transforming into the best versions of ourselves.”

Ms. Kajal Shares with us how martial art helps in socio-emotional empowerment. She says “ It is founded on conventional thinking of life science. Every movement in this martial art distinctively addresses the body, opening the doors of the ‘Jnana Chaksu’ in such a manner that it begins with bodily awareness and progressively progresses to a knowledge of the interior system — the internal organs, mind, and soul.”

Since every dis-empowered feeling is intrinsically linked to an under or over activation of one or all 7 chakras, “wheels of life,” in the body, it leads to de-escalating issues that are the root cause of self-sabotaging tendencies like aspects of self, lack of self-confidence, starting to feel of dread, vanquished, and extreme tiredness in daily life.

According to research, gender-based violence, financial poverty, income disparity, poor or subservient social standing, and unrelenting duty for the care of others are all factors that disproportionately impact women. Furthermore, additional studies have found that people who engage in regular physical activity of various types have improved their mental health in areas such as mental weariness, low self-esteem, low self-expression, and so on.

We discovered that endorphins ejected during vigorous exercise aid in density and mental alertness for the workload. The key distinction between a warrior and a fighter would be that a warrior must train every waking moment of her life and gain inner strength to become compelling and invincible on the outside. Through Kalaripayattu training, one may develop a strong personality that empowers them socially, emotionally, and ethically.

Kajal even shared about her journey and obstacles along her way, She said “For me, the big challenge has been connecting with people and increasing awareness about such a truthful framework wherein ‘modernization’ became the only appropriate lifestyle, and also conquering communication barriers and obtaining economic help to undertake out developments mostly on the surface for enabling underprivileged children, transgenders and female who are emotionally and cognitively abused, among some other things”.

Her strain of being a lady in a “man’s field” follows. People will not take you seriously, therefore I just had to constantly demonstrate my expertise, vision, and determination, she quotes.

After the struggles comes the road ahead where Ms. Srivastava shared her vision, The objectives were to find the objective of socio-emotionally empowering children, youth, transsexuals, cisgenders, and all impoverished people through Kalaripayattu and other programs to new heights and to bring this Indian traditional method to a worldwide audience.
