Ode to Sari

Aishwarya Rai in Sari

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.
