18th April 2018 #71 She is “Mrinmayee”, a beautiful Dhakai Jamdani. Wearing it for the second time. When I had draped it for the first time I had written a story like post emulating my FB friend #Kavitasrinirao who names her sarees like her children. I am reproducing the edited version of the same post because nothing has changed about Mrinmayee... . “This saree has travelled from across the border from the banks of Padma to the land of Ganga to be with me... has a long travel trail. I am tempted to call her "Mrinmayee" because since yesterday this name is ringing in my mind as Vinita my live -in help in Delhi has delivered a beautiful baby girl. In my excitement I have made a list of names but "Mrinmayee" of Rabindranath Tagore is constantly in my mind. My children say it's a tongue twisting name and Vinita & Bhim may not ever call her by this name. So for now let me at least call my saree #Mrinmayee. . I had many Jamdanis bought from vendors coming from Calcutta . Most of them said they are Dhakais. I am never too sure but Mrinmayee is from across the border from Bangla Desh . My cousin Aparna Mahanty who is very dear to me lives in Australia and works for "Save the Child". Last year she visited Dhaka & then Nepal. Mrinmayee enticed her in Dhaka and Aparna very lovingly picked her up for me. Then she went to Nepal and met my daughter's friend Rashmi to be taken to Pote Bazar to buy the kind of neckpieces made out of Belgian beads that I wear. "Mrinmayee" was left in Rashmi's care in Nepal. Their colleague travelled to Calcutta and "Mrinmayee" was handed over to my son-in-law. He accompanied Mrinmayee to Mumbai and then she waited for me until I returned from Romania. While my little sister was planning all this so secretly with my children I kept writing to her on FB from Romania that I envied all those Jamdanis that she was posting from "Padma ke kinare". . “Mrinmayee" is playful like a child, graceful as a fawn. She laughs freely, acts as she pleases like Rabindranath's beautiful "Mrinmayee". #8sareeapril #iwearhandloom . * Vinita’s daughter was finally named Gaurangini . *Swipe to see my earlier pictures courtsey Nirmala *Today’s pic credit- Kajal.

17thApril 2018 #70 #allindiabackshots #sareespeak #throwback as I am at home these days and haven’t had enough time to click pictures. In my spare time I keep going through my phone gallery to see pictures of my sarees taken during last three years since the time I started writing about sarees on social media. I came across many photographs clicked from the back. So here is my tribute to #allindiabackshot . My back shots were always taken to either showcase my beautiful #aanchals explaining their weaves or my handwoven or hand block printed blouses. Three years back when I started posting not many used Ikat, Chintz, Dabu & Bagh, curtain materials & gamchas or pattern on pattern saree blouses which I did since I was 16 years old, back in the seventies. So I always made a spacial effort to showcase my blouses which were made effortlessly by my very unassuming simple tailor who is used to making my #printedblouses as he calls them for last 30 years since I moved to Mumbai. Non of these backshots were a modelling effort on my part but to show case my #highneckblouses simple yet differently made. Some of them are taken in Mumbai house and some in Delhi house. The credit for these photographs goes to Vinita my live in help in Delhi & Nirmala in Mumbai. Nirmala is no longer with me and I am training the new girl Kajal to take my saree pics. Unless they are more enthusiastic than me my photographs can’t be seen on social media. They are the life line and have the ability to turn into ace photographers. Nirmala has experimented to such an extent that in one of the photographs I look almost a part those B. Prabha women in the painting. I stood exactly the way they instructed me to stand looking left, right or centre. This post is actually dedicated to Vinita & Nirmala who have so skilfully taken the photographs that they make me look tall, slim and standing with an attitude which you may not find in me when you meet me in real life. #iwearhandloom

2nd April 2018 #61 #twosareeday. Highlight of the day is my beautifully embroidered blouse gifted by Rama Rrebbapragda @rama_rare. Rama & I interacted when I wrote a post on “Kunalsterrace”. We mothers feel deeply for our children and are forever involved in our children’s lives. I think that’s a common thread between Rama & me besides our saree tales. The moment I came out of my room my children were so happy to see these birds perched on a tree on my back and on my sleeves. Replicating nature through any art or craft gives so much of joy. This is the best gift that she could have given me as I love embroidered blouses. Holding a needle & thread is so therapeutic. I am back to many of my childhood hobbies. A mundane thing like attaching a fall to my sarees once in a while gives me so much of pleasure. While on hobbies I am all for nurturing hobbies in life besides our professional skills. Professional success gives us name, fame & money but our hobbies give us immense happiness and they can be great stress busters too Saree of the day is a striking Kanchi cotton with beautiful peacocks on the border & aanchal. My kanakambaram flower look alike neckpiece bought from Copacabana beach in Rio is a perfect match for this beautiful blouse. . #birdsonmyblouse #kanakambaranam #kanchicotton #wearheritage #wearhandloom #handloom #weavesofindia #textilesofindia #sotd #ootd #ootdfashion #warpandweft #tanabana #sareelove #Saree #sari #mysareestory #storyinwardrobe #sareestory #sareestyle #sareeinspiration #sareelovers #sareenotsorry #sareeproud.

6th April 2018 #65 Lunch in my Vishwakarma saree with Pooja Ray and Sumita. It was #sareesisterhood all the way. Pooja lives in Dubai & Sumita in Mumbai. It didn’t seem like I was meeting them for the first time. That’s the beauty of six Yards which has connected people across the world. . I have already written in the past that this extraweft saree from Orissa was woven during Vishwakarma Exhibition somewhere in 1982-83. The original saree was named “रामचन्द्र पेड़ी”. Mine is recently woven in Khorda district of Orissa . The row of Sua Pakhi (parrots) has been added as a design intervention. These birds were not there in the original saree. The small checks woven with yellow fine lines with Ikat technique are the beauty & challenge of this saree. It requires an accurate knowledge of mathematics. That’s why this saree becomes so special. More than the aanchal the body is exquisite. Sadly my camera is unable to capture the checks in the full length picture. Swipe left to see the checks & the beautiful extraweft aanchal. Blouse-#passapalli Neckpiece- 40 year old precious silver neckpiece from Janpath. #8sareeapril . #vishwakarmasaree #ramachandrapedi #orissasaree #odishaweaves #cottonlove #wearheritage #wearhandloom #handloom #mysareestory #storyinwardrobe #sotd #ootd #ootdfashion #warpandweft #tanabana #sareelove #sareestory #sareestyle #sareeinspiration #sareelovers #sareeinwardrobe #saree #sareenotsorry #sareeproud.

5th April 2018 #64 It is one of those days when I pick up my blouse first and then match my saree. My eyes were set on my Chintz blouse today and then I matched my simple Chanderi with this beautiful & soothing blouse. I have often mentioned about my Chintz love which I inherited from my mother. as part of her commitment to swadeshi. This post of mine is actually dedicated to the humble Chint/Chintz which had once challenged the mighty machine made textile industry of Manchester. My FB friends have read my posts on Chintz but I haven’t written in detail about Chintz on IG. . In my Oriya house hold way back when I was a child the word 'Chint' was commonly used because Chint materials were used to make clothes, quilts & curtains. My mother not only made quilts and curtains she also stitched frocks for me. It was inexpensive and the colours never ran. I started wearing blouses made out of this material when I started wearing sarees. I used to buy 'Chint' in Delhi from a place called Raigarpura. One meter of running material cost just ₹2.50. Rajasthani women, specially construction workers made their lehengas out of this material. . 'Chint' or 'Chintz' are brilliantly coloured cotton prints from india. They have designs featuring flowers in different colours typically on a plain background. They were Woodblock printed calico produced in India from 1600 to 1800 which was popular for bed covers, quilts & draperies . By 1680 more than million pieces of 'Chintz' were being imported into England per year. Similar quantity was going to France and Dutch republic. French and English mills grew concerned in 17th century as they could not produce them so a ban was declared on all 'chintz' imports. In fact to run down Chintz the British started using it commonly in informal speech, to refer to cheap, low quality, or gaudy things, including personal behaviour. This ban was only lifted when they learnt how to make Chintz and started calling them "English Chintz" and started exporting back to India. . Last year I found them in some nondescript shop in Gurgaon and since then I wear them quite often. ( Some references from the net) . #8sareeapril

13th April 2018 #68 “Man proposes & God disposes!” I am a great believer in this yet I keep planning ahead. So a lunch was planned on 11th with Sonya @bit_desiriented and I was to meet Suchitra @soumeiran on 12th. I also had a meeting with Deepa and Indu at “Abhyudaya” on 10th for which I wore this beautiful telia inspired cotton Ikat. Had my pictures clicked at home as well as at Abhyudaya by Indu where she joked & insisted that I looked like a professor so she definitely wanted to click pictures with my specs. Before I could post them I reached home & found I was faced with a medical emergency. My husband needed to be immediately hospitalised. All the subsequent lunches got cancelled, I have been only monitoring sodium levels for last three days. He is fine now and joking around with the hospital staff and my daughter from london wondered as to why am I not posting. My answer was that I am in the hospital and how do I post...She said so what life doesn’t stop. Things must be happening around you. That’s when I actually looked out of the window of “Saifee hospital” built on Marine Lines just opposite the Charni Road station and admired this beautiful view. This is real Mumbai. Black & yellow taxis plying on the Marine Lines, the public dustbin right in front of a palace like hospital, two local trains moving in two different directions, much talked about Bal Bhavan building looking tired and dilapidated , traffic on the posh marine drive and beyond that the grand Arabian Sea outlined by queens necklace from where you can also see the Raj Bhavan. All in one frame. The Mumbai Magic, Mumbai Meri Jaan where middle of the night you can still get the best medical facilities, where doctors come well dressed in their best clothes better than corporate guys and are not in a hurry and give you enough time to discuss all your concerns. Where the nurses and ward boys make you feel at home. This doesn’t happen in every city. Yes it’s not a bad idea to write a post from “Saifee” while looking out of my room with this dynamic view and thanking God for his timely interventions. After all, against all odds life is still beautiful. Swipe for saree photographs. #8sareeapril

23rd April 2018 #74 There are no definite answers to following two questions- 1).How many sarees one should possess? 2).How much a saree should cost to be classified as a good saree? It is so relative. A person having barely 10 sarees can manage to present oneself as smartly as some one having thousands of sarees. A saree worth ₹200/- can sometime look more striking than a saree worth 2 lakhs. It feels great to see enthusiasm about sarees and the efforts to keep saree alive as a garment. Though I am personally a Handloom enthusiast I don’t make value judgements on those who wear fabrics other than handlooms because everyone can not afford handlooms. All those women who come home to help us can not manage without those “Surat mills” produced nylon sarees. The women who travel in Mumbai locals and wear sarees to work invariably wear a look alike nylon Ilkal or nylon Kota or those nylon printed sarees from Surat & Ahmedabad. When my generation was in college in 70s and wanted to wear handloom sarees for 365 days we were looking for a ₹ 20 Bengal taant , Dhonekhali, Kota , Sungudi or a Puneri sarees and they were available. The saree as a garment lived on because of these affordable smart looking sarees while on the other hand we all aspired to buy a Banarasi or a Kanjivaram or a Gharchola for our wedding day. The point that I am trying to make is that the availability & popularity of affordable sarees is the key to survival of sarees ( Handloom in particular). The real saree queens are those young girls who are trying to wear a saree 365 days, those humble women working as clerks in Govt offices, millions of humble house wives in rural India and B towns along with those saree clad construction workers & house helps. They are the ones giving saree its due place and creating a huge demand in the market. Today’s saree is one such humble & simple single colour, hand blockprinted ,finely woven white mul cotton. These are trade mark sarees from Kundahar, Kolkata. They had barely cost me ₹500/- each few years back. I had bought 4 of them in different colours. I used to wear them to office in summers. They looked as good as my cotton Chanderis.

28th February 2018 #29. Hurriedly draped this Yellow Bhujodi with my green Orissa Ikat blouse quite early in the morning. Wondering who did I dress up for because I only met stone faced expressionless staff of hired Visa agency of UK Visa office. Any way that’s me & my day begins with thinking about which saree am I going to wear. This has been my routine for 35 years. Thankfully even though I am retired I haven’t given up wearing sarees. I hear a particular colour calling out to me every morning. My friends used to say there is always a colour in the air and that impacts you and accordingly you pick up your clothes everyday. True or not I don’t know but today was clearly a day for yellow & that too Bhujodi. My love for Bhujodi is three years old. I did buy beautiful cottons from “Gurjari” while in college and after that for office wear. Bandhni , Ajrakh & Patola sarees along with Mashru blouses and shawls from kuch symbolised vibrant Gujarat for girls growing up in Delhi. Later I used to go to Bhuj very often as AIR Bhuj played an important role in the lives of people living there after the devastating earthquake. No one ever told me about Bhujodi sarees. Bhujodi sarees were not available even in the state Emporium those days. I am glad they have been revived and have come out of the Bhujodi village to urban handloom and saree lovers. Two hundred Vankar weavers are keeping this needful art alive in a 500 year old village called Bhujodi. I am also posting my photograph of last year when I had draped it for the first time. Standing next to Art Nouveau painter Alphonse Maria Mucha’s “Gismonda” and “Jaoslava” wearing saree like flowing dresses. My neckpiece is from Rio bought way back in 2005 while I was attending an international media conference. Walking along the Copacabana Beach, in the side lanes I found many shops selling semiprecious stones and I was utterly tempted. My friend who was from Delhi would just not let me buy saying they are available in every street corner in Jaipur but some how I managed to buy this one and no regrets. They remind me of beautiful flowers people wear in south. .

27th February 2018 #28 #throwback These are real throw back pictures taken almost a year back. In the meantime everything including the basic decor has changed in my Mumbai house. This photograph was taken just before I left for the 60th year celebration of Vividh Bharati of All India Radio. In the past as a young Station Director I had headed the service for five years. Have you ever been to the studios of AIR? To be inside those spacious studios with white perforated walls was the dream of every aspiring broadcaster of the country. I was fortunate to fulfil my dream & spend almost 35 years in & around those studios. Part of which was spent in Vividh Bharati, the legendary Radio Service that has been like the "back ground music" of every middle class Indian home since 1965. Wearing sarees to work and sharing saree tales with other talented colleagues equally passionate about sarees was an integral part of our morning meetings. I was keen to wear a nice saree as some of my junior colleagues are still around. I think this cream, black and magenta Banarasi bought from Laffair, Delhi, few years back was just the right one for the occasion. What I had liked the most about this saree was the exquisite extra weft work done with black thread on the whole saree. Magenta border and simple magenta aanchal uplift the white & black body. Banaras is the ultimate place for fine extra weft weave. I think the weavers all over the country have drawn their inspiration from Banaras as far as extra weft is concerned even though they weave local motifs in their local weaves. . #wearheritage #wearhandloom #handloom #Banarasi #banarasinspires #extraweft #mysareestory #storyinwardrobe #sotd #ootd #ootdfashion #warpandweft #tanabana #sareelove #sareestory #sareestyle #sareeinspiration #sareelovers #saree #textilesofindia #sareenotsorry #sareeproud #weavesofindia

A peek into the black and white era. A full sleeved blouse with white dori work and a white chiffon sarees with black polka dots. The blouse I had picked up from a co exhibitor in one of the fashion shows I used to participate in. The saree belongs to my mother in law. Polka dots hardly ever go out of fashion and there’s something chic about them. I have a picture somewhere of her wearing the same saree. She’s long gone but whenever I wear this it rakes up memories of a woman I truly admired. ♥️. . . #blackandwhite #nostalgia #instagrammers #polkadots #sari #sareestory #theindianwoman #igers #tagstagram #tagsta #spoonsandsneakers #dibbi18 #memories #chiffon #sareelove #indian #wrap #smile

NANI- she was someone, for as long as I can remember very shy, quiet, loving and nurturing. Her sarees, much like this one were always crisp, clean and pleasant. I don't know what my nanima would have looked like in her youth, mumma doesn't have any photos..but I'm sure nani would be watching this recreation of her young self from up above and smiling... ..........this one is dedicated to you Nani. . #nani #colossalcloset #newpostalert #sareestory #vintage #ethnic . #phonephotography 📸@ceejayworldpeace

58/2018 - We had beautiful weather today. It was time to take this good old vintage Kanjeevaram out for a spin. An off white and brown tiny checks body with a gorgeous maroon, green and orange border and pallu with zari work on it. Wore it with the blouse of another Kanjeevaram silk sari and my old m&m necklace 😀 Went shopping today for my uncles and aunt and quite a few people stopped to admire the sari and ask about it. This one’s been washed many times so flows easily, a little too easily I should say as I couldn’t keep the pallu from riding down my hand. Perhaps it’s a bit wider than other saris too. Nevertheless I’m incredibly comfortable in these vintage Kanjeevarams and love them so much as they always remind me of my mum! Photographed by my husband.😀 . . . . . . . . . . . . #designerrajirm #rajiscollection #sareecollection #vintage #kanjeevaram #silk #sari #sarisunday #curlyhair #mandm #sareelove #100sareepact #sareestory #instasari #instasaree #instagood #indiancraftsmanship #indianfashion #sareefashion

There's a story that goes around in our dinner table quite often. When I was in kindergarten I was obsessed with "daal" cooked by an auntie upstairs. Everyday during lunch I showed up to her doorstep with an empty bowl for her daal. I recall being a very quiet little girl whose lip would curl down and eyes got teary from hearing someone cough loudly, that emotional little girl ignored her mom calling her "daal begger", climbed stairs of an apartment building for a delicious bowl of daal. Guess I was a foodie since I was a child! I love this saree like that daal. Ps: for those who don't know "daal" is a lentil stew. আমার হলদে ডাল শাড়ি #yellowsaree #sareesandstories #churisandstories #sareesandchuris #poterbibi #daalsaree #instasaree #sareenotsorry

মন খারাপের বিকেলে কেউ গলা সাঁধে না কার্নিশে আর শালিক পাখি বাসা বাঁধে না কান্না পেলে কেনো আমি আর, কাঁদি না। . . . মন খারাপ হলে এখন আমি ঘুমায় যাই 😁 #marigold #mansfieldtx #anjandutt #amiashbophirey #gloomy #deshisaree

I really admire those who can get on with their life without a second spent on anyone else other than themselves. It must be great to not have to think about where the other person is coming from and blindly be rude with them. On the other hand those who tries to understand the other side ends up debating for both party and get tired of it all and then wonder why they are sad. The purpose of this post was I really wanted to share this picture and needed to write something that sounded deep. But kotha kintu shotti chilo! Raag korle hudahudai korba onner side bujhte jayo na :p
