Kajal has been historically used to shield wearers from the effects of the evil eye, reversing its harmful gaze. In the same way, Kajal Magazine rebuffs the damning scrutiny of onlookers to create a space for the South Asian diaspora to raise their voices. We focus on creation, curation, and commentary. Our magazine is published both online and annually in print.
