Boomerang fathers reduce signs of depression in family (Wikimedia) Top News Adolescent girls with the presence of their boomerang fathers — who enter and exit their children’s lives — are less likely to experience depression even after undergoing stressful experiences like family instability absence of biological father or the presence of stepfather says a study The findings showed that adolescent girls exposed to boomerang fathers had lower depressive symptoms at 18 years of age than those exposed to instable non-boomerang fathers “Boomerang fathering served as a protective factor for female adolescent depression compared to female adolescents who experienced instability but not boomerang fathers” said lead researcher Daphne Hernandez Assistant Professor at University of Houston in Texas US “Even though the family has gone through some really bad times having the dad come back home has proven to be positive” said Cassandra Dorius Assistant Professor at Iowa State University in the US However boomerang fathering was not significantly related to depression in adolescent boys Biological parents who boomerang are more likely to be single at the time of their child’s birth which is “a gateway for which boomeranging exists” since there is no legal or residential commitment the researchers said “Although the relationship between the biological father and mother may be complex there is a commitment to the child by the boomerang father that creates a bond between father and child” Hernandez explained Additionally most households with boomeranging fathers did not experience a step-parent or non-biological father presence “Familiarity of a biological father who enters and exits the house may deter non-biological partners from entering their children’s lives lowering the activation of the hormone that causes stress and depression” Hernandez noted For the study the team examined responses from nearly 4000 youth who were 18 years old by the year 2010 and more than 3300 mothers The family instability is more fluid and complex than previously thought indicating greater family support during such times It may assist in creating positive mental health the researchers

offering them to a discerning audience say the country’s handloom industry is still a very disorganised sector despite being so huge And as it is disorganised the precision required to meet quality standards and the demands of the global market is missing Such precision is possible “only if the sector is organised from start to finish and standardised norms set by the government are stringently incorporated” Swati told in an email interview from Kolkata “Designers can and are already creating great silhouettes from Indian handlooms” said Sunaina adding that what is now required is a “lateral shift towards handlooms and appreciation of its quality and worth among those choosing to be dressed in Western cuts and patterns” “Alternatively a sari which is the most versatile unstitched garment draped and presented in many forms to create any desired silhouette is suitable for the red carpet” The designer duo has infused innovation and freshness into their handloom work which reflects in the motifs colours and placements culminating in limited-edition textiles that celebrate tradition All the handloom saris at their Kolkata store “Swati and Sunaina” are made on the pit looms of Banaras using techniques passed down the generations by master craftsmen The use of pure certified gold zari to intricately weave saris has been the hallmark of the label that consciously chooses quality over quantity For a few years now they have worked with master weavers and this has involved understanding how such zari is made “The Banaras handloom industry is very versatile and adaptable” and open to influence and inputs making it “easy for anyone to put their designs into the process of production The weavers are known to pick any specialised form of weaving from any sector and re-create it a case in point being Jaamdani of Bengal making Banaras handloom a viable ‘Make in India’ product” said Swati As designers they like to retain the classicism of traditional Banarasi patterns and infuse freshness with a play of modern colours and pattern placement said Sunaina “An innovation in design and experiment that we successfully conducted was interpreting antique jewellery into woven design patterns and successfully creating a three-dimensional effect by playing with colours and intelligent weaving” she said Added Sunaina: “Our challenges are more about creating awareness of the intricacies of procuring complexed textiles As a solution to this we have taken up educating young minds with informative videos about the processes involved in creating pure zari and textiles” They recently held an exhibition on the art of zari titled ‘Gold’ which was curated by Mayank Mansingh Kaul It showcased the process of the making of zari via a multi-media presentation using photographs film and video projections So how has zari work evolved from the past to the present “Zari has been an integral part of Indian handlooms (and) was always associated with wedding finery and richness From the early 20th century zari has undergone a revolution from being totally hand-drawn to being partially mechanised and this has made zari production easier and more (in volume)” Swati told IANS “Zari is created from precious metals (so) textiles woven with real zari have a higher value” said Sunaina adding that they could only be afforded by a few “It was always associated with royalty nobility and wedding trousseau” “With time the class barriers have disappeared and anybody with a desire and ability to buy has access to the finest” For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian
