In the graphic novel Pashmina, author Nidhi Chanani illustrates how the female goddess Shakti allows women to see their true potential through a pashmina scarf to empower women in the traditional Indian society and beyond. The protagonist, Priyanka, struggles with questions of her Indian heritage and her absent father. She blames her mother for these gaps in her identity, until she finds a pashmina scarf hidden within her closet. This scarf has the power to show women their true potential. Priyanka discovers that Shakti is the driving force behind the scarf and strives to empower women.
