Saree story # 17
Occasion: Day 6 of Navratras, worshipping Ma Kathyayini. She represents the nurturing aspect of the Divine Mother. She embodies the values of sharing and caring. Young girls pray to Devi Kathyayini for a good husband. Marriage comes with a sense of security, commitment, togetherness, team spirit and belongingness. She signifies the finer qualities of being in a relationship.The ultimate relationship is the union with oneself (soul).

May she bless us with her powers.
This saree was a gift by my bhabhi (sister-in-law) and I wore it for first time on the occasion of Diwali in the year 2008 or 2009. She bought it from Angadi Silks Jayanagar, Bangalore. Today, I wore it after 6-7 years. And I could notice today that it is a very pretty saree with a lot of different things on it, e.g. its a unique combination of Rani color and an orange color that can not be expressed, but is a treat for eyes. Then it has Mukaish work on it and beautiful orange pallu hand weaved. I was admiring the saree while wearing it and was enjoying it. This is one of the best saree work and I value it much. I read on DO 100 Saree Pact that Orange is the color for day 6. So here is my story in a saree that also has an adoring orange color; thinking of the powers of Ma Kathyayini; values of family, sharing and caring builds a strong foundation and helps one to get connected over the period with one’s own soul.
We offered Banana and Boondi Prasadam to celebrate the occasion.
One of the friends of my son, who is in same class also in school had come to spend the day with us and joined us in our prayer time.
