Mellow Yellow Monday #166 - On the Road to New Delhi - March 26, 2012

There was so much to see in the blur as our taxi driver flew down the road
between Patiala and New Delhi.  These women, in their colorful saris, caught
my attention.


The saris worn by women in different  parts of India are quite different 
from each other.  I have not purchased any.  Watching my "sister", Lorna,
wrap one has convinced me that I would come unraveled and be,
embarrassingly, on display.  The saris are are so beautiful, though, I
am always in awe.

I am participating in Mellow Yellow Monday, #166 - check out the site 
and add your splash of yellow to join in the fun.

  11. I love the bright colours of the saris. They are not so attractive when worn in a colder clime though. I think the saris need the sun to show them off.

  13. I did not know there were differences. My friend, Marie, has been to two Indian weddings and her friend, Vetta, has tried to get her to wear one, but she refuses.

  16. Yes, they are so lovely and colourful, as you say. I've worn the shalwar kameez many times but like you, I don't think I could get to grips with a sari!

  17. I think that traditional dress looks better on the people for whom it was created, and the possibility of my clothes falling right off of me would have certainly given me pause had I been sari shopping.
