Reincarnated!

No, I am not some king from the Mahabharata or anything. Just read this article on ET.

Phirangs want your saree as a curtain

People in the UK are buying Benarasi sarees to use as curtains. But they are so behind the trend on this one!

Sarees have been multi purpose at home, as long as I can remember. Want a makeshift curtain for that especially hot day? Mom’s saree it is! Feeling really cold on a Margazhi night, grandma’s old silk saree will keep you warm!

Imagine using one of their skirts as a curtain.. Yuck!

    Mom’s or grandma’s sarees also were used as baby’s ‘thooLi’ – a comfy hammock to sleep in…..so I guess we’re used to multipurpose sarees from the cradle πŸ™‚

    Happy New Year to you too!

  3. Hahahaha, Yeah Sarees have never become a waste in the history. When its in perfect condition its the best wear that suits any women and when it becomes quiet old it serves multipurpose, frm Thooli as priyamvada_k said till it takes a new form as handkerchief.

    Have a nice day,
    Ponnarasi Kothandaraman.
