It’s the custom amongst Konkani community to give the new daughter in law 5 Saree’s.
This electric aubergine coloured Belgaum silk is my fave amongst the 5 I got. It’s light, drapes well and I love the colour.
The first pic is from my younger daughter’s naming ceremony in year 2000.
The second pic is of the same Saree that I
recently wore it for my cousin’s wedding reception.
My younger daughter, now 18 clicked the pic. My my, haven’t we all grown up 🙂
Upon seeing me wearing it my elder daughter called dibs on this Saree as she too loved the vibrant colour.
