Today, the whole crowd's attention was on this North-eastern beauty. She was dressed in a cream colored designer Saree (the Indian Traditional wear, in case you are a non-Indian reader), hair tied up presentably, accessories that matched the saree's red border and a very simple, yet nice foot wear that went well with the careful choice of her attire.
I was amazed at the way she carried herself in the crowded bus. To wear a saree and get into a crowded bus requires a totally different level of experience. It gets very tough to manage the saree without disturbing the pleats. She walked like she is used to wearing saree every day.
A sharp contrast to some of us here, who know to wear saree, but behave like it is a total new fashion.
- Few women walk like remote-controlled dolls on the days that they wear saree.
- Some others say 'No' to saree because they think it takes a long time to drape a saree well.
- Many girls say 'No' to saree because they think it is a little 'revealing' in comparison with the other casual outfits.
- A lot of ladies say 'No' to saree because they think it attracts a lot of attention.
- Most others say 'No' to saree because they think it makes them look older.
"You look beautiful", I told her... The "Thank you" followed by a lovely smile that came back made the pretty lady look prettier.
