Table cloth for 30k, serving bowl for 7.7k: Desis slam Priyanka Chopra's homeware brand for being overpriced
The Sona Home collection includes table linens, playful G & Tea straws, dinnerware, coasters, mugs, and other decor items.

Priyanka Chopra Jonas has always taken Indian culture and heritage to a global level. Glorifying the Indian tradition, the Desi girl, has launched a homeware collection brand called Sona Home in New York City. After the successful venture of her restaurant Sona in the US, the actor has launched her own homeware line along with the business partner Maneesh Goyal.

The Sona Home collection includes table linens, playful G & Tea straws, dinnerware, coasters, mugs, and other decor items. Priyanka shared the video of her new decor line on social media, stating that Sona Home brings a piece of India to the US.

Undoubtedly, seeing our culture receive the respect it deserved made people back home happy and proud. In order to find out what was in store for them, they visited the website of PeeCee’s home décor brand. But what surprised the users was the prices of the products, which were said to be too high.

Here are the prices of some of the products listed on the website of Sona Home.

Panna Table cloth costs Rs 30,627.
Sultan’s Garden Oval Platter is worth Rs 15,629.
A set of 4 Panna dinner napkins costs Rs 13,262.
A set of four Panna coasters costs Rs 4,576.
A serving bowl from the collection costs Rs 7,732.
A mug is worth Rs 3,471.
A set of 2 bread baskets costs Rs 7,500

Indians troll Priyanka Chopra’s Sona Home brand

Many users started trolling PeeCee for heavy pricing. One user commented We have gone from foreigners ripping off people by exoticizing Indian culture and selling things at ludicrous prices to Indians ripping off people by exoticizing Indian culture and seeing things at ludicrous prices.

I’m sorry but this collection looks like it was designed for a retirement home. The colors and style are so antiquated, said another. Yet another commented If anyone pays $400 for a COTTON tablecloth, they deserve that level of highway robbery IMO.

Jitne me bread basket aa rahi utne me 2 jodi jeans, 5 cool tshirt, ek badhiya sneekers aa jaate hai bread ke 10 packets aur unhe rakhne wali peti ke sath. $98 nearly Rs 7500. Just saying, commented another.

Priyanka Chopra about Sona Home

Priyanka Chopra shared a video and gave us a glimpse of some of the pieces in her collection. In a caption she wrote, “I’ve always been a very intentional person with everything that I do, and so when launching SONA Home, @maneeshkgoyal and I wanted to bring our love of our joint heritage, coupled with a penchant for entertaining friends and family at home, to create a brand that I am insanely proud of.”

In addition to being inspired by India, there are many personal tie-ins to this collection. Like the lampshades, which are made using vintage Saris inspired by a beautiful story about Maneesh’s mom (It tears me up every time I hear it), she added.

Sona Home has been created with a lot of love and with a purpose to make every moment luxurious, intentional and special. We’re so happy to welcome you to our table, she concluded.

Amarnath Yatra 2022
The 43-day pilgrimage will conclude on August 11.

Amarnath Yatra 2022 is an annual Hindu pilgrimage that attracts thousands of Lord Shiva devotees from all over the world. After being suspended for two years due to the coronavirus pandemic, the sacred pilgrimage is all set to begin this year on June 30. The 43-day pilgrimage will conclude on August 11.

The online registration to visit the holy shrine of Barfani Baba has already started. It takes several days to reach the holy shrine to get to the temple because it is not easily accessible by road. So, to make the trip more comfortable for devotees, the Jammu and Kashmir government has started a helicopter service to reach the Amarnath cave from Srinagar.

For the first time, devotees can access the helicopter service directly from Srinagar. Here’s how!

Devotees will start the pilgrimage from Srinagar to Panchtarni, which is the last stop point located at an elevation of 3,500 meters, from where a 6 km trek takes pilgrims to the holy Amarnath cave. From there, devotees can either walk to the holy cave or take a horse or palki to reach the holy shrine.

Earlier, the helicopter facility was only available from Baltal and Pahalgam, which is the twin route to reach the Amarnath shrine, and from Pahalgam, pilgrims either walk or take the help of ponies and a palanquin facility.
