Oh my God what are you saying, could be the reaction of many. But for me and many others it is absolute happiness.
What is it that drives a person to admiration of a saree?
The sheer look at a six yards is pleasing.
Then comes the color, the texture, the design, the material. From the bright reds to the sober blues, they are all a delightful .
Shopping as such is fun for many, not that they are shopaholics but they definitely feel the adrenaline rush. And if it’s shopping for a saree it’s a very happy & cherished moment.
The moving in & out of shops to get the saree that meets your choice, is all fun though equally tiring.
The wait at the shop for your desired color or print, the one that pleases your eye is another strain to self and also the accompanying family members. Invariably the saree which the salesman is showing to your neighbor in the shop, turns out looking better than what you have been shown.
And when you get something good your mind & heart together say YES.
While choosing a saree especially for the newcomers, the poster prints are the best followed closely by the one displayed on the mannequin.
Or what has recently been worn by the heroines in any particular movie.
In Today’s world it’s not the movie stars but what is worn by the stars of the soap operas which is the fashion.
A wedding ceremony in the family or any happy occasion increases the happiness manifold.
Since it means a whole lot of shopping of ” Sarees”for self and friends & family
I am an ardent fan of raw silk sarees, they really make me excited.
I continue the tradition of wearing sarees every day to office, So much that my colleagues bet I was born draped in a saree.
