My most humble saree and a favourite at that.
The most beautiful perk of marrying a Bong has been that, I can savour shopping in the Bongland of Bankura, our hometown every year. The small town flaunts the most showstopper kinds of tant (cottons) with deep colours and ravishing borders in their humble stores with equal warm hospitality…. This black cotton, I bought some 16 yrs back. A down to earth price of 250 rs had me taken aback coz I had yet not learnt to believe that I would ever get a saree in this price and that too such a beauty. If Simple is a way of life then Kolkata cottons can sweep one off their feet, I guarantee.
