Shathee. Sathi in Hindi. Companion, friend.
What better name for a Saree a I wore to celebrate friendship? My husband met his college mate after 40 years … Thank you FB!
We dined at Chenab, a Punjabi Dhaba style rustic feel restaurant at Vashi.
This Saree was a favourite from yeaaaaaaars ago, sent by my mother from one of the Gariahat Saree shops she will remember . A Murshidabad silk, it has the prettiest Mughal miniature style pictures of women doing their daily chores, minding kids, puja, dressing up, playing music, and yes, even taking a stroll in the garden, while the men are going for hunting and war…. Cute I thought. Just my type… Work and play combined type! Like my day! And it’s got a sheen that’s not faded after these fourteen-fifteen odd years.
My black and white (how it shines) kantha-mirror blouse piece a gift from Parama Ghosh, and a pendant and earring set in silver and stone, a recent buy , were fit enough for the whole day-night wear.
