This exquisite parrot green and gold banarasi weave with magenta kinari was a gift from my brother on my nephews kan-chedan ceremony. On first glance I was like ‘ I not gonna be able to carry this bright color’ and I kept it inside bed box!! This was in March. In December same year, my brother and bhabhi were to visit me to attend a family wedding. I decided to give this saree a try, already had a full sleeved magenta blouse to go with……..and oh my god it looked stunning. That day and today, I have lost count of number of times I have worn this saree and laughed thinking how silly it was to dismiss it on first glance. Picture on the right is with my bhabhi from that wedding and the one on left is from karwachauth last year.
