What is the Desi Planner?
The Desi Planner is the first South Asian focused daily planner. With an extensive holiday list of over 100 national, cultural, and religious holidays from South Asia, the U.S., and Canada. And monthly recipes and DIYs by South Asian female creators, the Desi Planner proudly incorporates the all the facets of your origins into your daily life.
The inspiration for the cover art was the brainchild of Aastha and Raj, who are both fans of South Asian textiles. In addition to food, textiles are a cornerstone of South Asia and its various subcultures. The colors, the intricate designs, the regional influences and the craftsmanship create the core of South Asian textiles.
The cover art for the 2023 Desi Planner and stationary is designed by Raj Thandi, owner of Pink Chai Media and the creative mind behind the Pink Chai blog.
