Hello friends. I joined this pact on 15th August, 2015 , our Independence Day. My first few posts have been on my Facebook page. Ally and Anju both suggested I post here and then link to Facebook. I believe I have joined at just the right time – for me. Since we celebrate the 10 days of Ganesh Chaturti, I am following my own tradition and wearing a saree a day! So it is going to be a bit of a glut for the first few days till I catch up and then get to a more natural-for-me pace of wearing sarees! I am going to be reproducing the text from my posts here!

1/100 – now that sounds a daunting target to achieve, even for a saree lover like me! But what better time than our Independence Day to begin? Thank you, my friend, Shanti Coimbatore for being the inspiration for this endeavour.

Rich emerald green with a red border and a brilliant orange in the thread work design, this is a traditional Kanjeevaram Silk sari, bought in my favourite saree shop Radha Silk Emporium (Rasi) in Mylapore, Chennai. It has another tradition woven into its border and pallav – the Balucheri design based on the Ramayana.

I have chosen to team it with more tradition! Temple jewellery with red and green stones from another special store Sukra, again in Mylapore Chennai.
