There’s something mystical about wearing a sari. It’s six yards of pure cloth in net, chiffon, silk, cotton, that folds together in an elegant and downright beautiful way.
The sari is also a right of passage into adulthood for a girl as well as the ability to fold and pin a massive piece of material in an organized fashion.
Getting M’s mom’s sari fixed by my aunt
Our wedding this past week was full of saris. And more saris. And shopping for saris in Dadar, Mumbai and across the city. But what beautiful pieces they are! It is hard to find the same exact sari twice because every one is in different colors, motifs, and palus. Every women is therefore unique, although the same cannot be said for men’s fashion.
