#2- The saree that binds
Saree #2: Soft silk
There are lots of gifts you get, some you keep, some you don’t. Among the ones you keep, there are ones that you treasure.
Those are the ones that have beautiful tales woven in them, the ones that don’t stop with just being a piece of cloth or just another saree.
This particular saree, a soft silk in my favourite colour blue, was gifted by my aunt for my cousin brother’s wedding as per our custom of gifting clothes to relatives. It was also the start of a renewed relationship that may not have sustained had it not been for my dear brother deciding to get married at the right time! So there, that’s the reason I treasure it.
This picture was at a recent reception ( the wedding season seems to be in a flow, more sarees are flying out of the cupboard at an alarming rate!)
