One of my favourites, this was a 5 min purchase from Kasat. I had set out to buy a new saree for my son’s “barsa” – naming ceremony. I had him in my arms as I walked into the store, and as if on cue, he started bawling the moment the salesman started displaying the sarees. This was the second saree he showed me, and it was love at first sight. Just pack it, I said, much to my husband’s delight. I wonder now whether he had something to do with the on cue bawling of my son, just to ensure we made a quick selection 🙂 🙂

A pale pinkish mauve chiffon that drapes like a dream, with flowers and creeperss embroidered in golden thread all over, #75 is extra special because of the day and the beautiful baby we named Shaunak. I still remember every moment of the barsa every time I drape this saree, and that is the real beauty of the saree – the memories they unfold within those five yards.

The picture is from the barsa itself, the first time I draped this saree and felt like the stars had descended on me.
