In the days of no TV or only black and white TV with dazzling stars on the screen, that aired only between 6-8 pm, the programm started with Krishi Darshan and ended with Chitrahaar.
So, with radio on in the background and lots of chit-chat with mom, this heirloom was created when I was still at college. Every sequin/sitara was hand sown by us.
Now my daughter, Shalini Sharma, holding her own little one in her arms wore it and emailed me her photo saying, ‘I felt so special in this sari – like I was being cuddled up with love! ‘
