Please let yourself be proud of small things. Please do that. Please allow yourself to get really excited about playing a video game well or sending an ask you were nervous about or letting a bug outside or peeling the whole orange in one try. Please get so excited about that. Please. That’s so cool I’m so glad you did it.

Probably from Rajasthan or Central India, this knife categorised as a ‘kard’ has grips scales made of bone. The iron bolster is chiselled, while the scabbard has a silver throat piece displaying a Hindu religious icon, probably Surya Dev, the Hindu Sun god, with attached bells and suspension chains. The chape is again made of silver, with a lion devouring his prey. The scabbard is covered in red velvet, the throat featuing brown leather.
