The word ‘Sari’ is the first thing that comes to mind when we talk about Indian clothes. The world knows that. We have seen numerous Americans and celebrities from across the world donned in a sari during their India visit, be it Oprah Winfrey or Paris Hilton. No other garment in the entire world is as intriguing as our Sari is. Intriguing because it is 7 to 9 yards of unstitched material. Intriguing because of the way it is worn, pleated and twined around the body, exposing a women’s midriff. Intriguing because of the numerous ways in which it can be worn, some say over 50.
A book by Amulya Malladi
A friend loaned me the book and I couldn't keep it down. It's one of those book that you just have to complete within a day.
'Brotherhood', published in 2013, is a book by the Chopra brothers, Deepak and Sanjiv, about their journey through life, about 'Dharma, Destiny and the American Dream', revealing 'their personal struggles and triumphs as doctors, immigrants, and brothers'.

("It is a nice take on being a 'new comer' to 'adulthood' at the young age of 18", as one critic put it. The author, at 18, metaphorically uses a grocery store as the stage of adulthood where she has just stepped on to for the first one as a young adult herself)
The Midday Grocery Store
'Girls Of Riyadh', by Rajaah Alsanea, is a fictional story of four friends from Riyadh in the popular format of the 'Sex In The City' story line, except that it is set in a land that is far from providing the open freedom that the women in Manhattan enjoy and perhaps take for granted- and that is what makes the novel intriguing and fascinating at the same time.
