Daughter in law Aditi’s nani ma has been wanting to invite us all. .. ever since the kids got married. .. in November 2014…
So. .finally. .we were all able to make it today for lunch..
As I started to get ready….. took out a lovely Gurjari anarkali…to give to the maid to iron…
Superna Khandelwal Rawat.. my older one..goes. .. ”Chachi, yeh kya kar rahi ho… why do you want to wear a kurta.. you look so much nicer in Sarees… (best of all) You look so much more slimmer in Sarees.. You will look Fat in a suit”
The magic word was ”Fat” which quickly made me take out this
bright pink georgette saree with beautiful French knots. ..all….hand embroidered …with Border n a lovely Pallu ..
Had bought the Saree about 8 years back…and had enhanced the saree with a delicate pearl border..
We reached the restaurant to find my punjabi samdhan Sangeeta Bahl already wearing a lovely black Baluchari saree and awesome jewellery to welcome us all ..
Sangeeta’s been getting inspired by us to wear Sarees..She..says…
(so..one more convert… what say Ally Matthan n Anju Maudgal of #100SareePact)
Had great food amidst a very Indian ethnic ambience at the ‘Desi Vibes’ restaurant at CP ..
