To Be or Not To Be
A little kingdom I possess,
Where thoughts and feelings dwell;
And very hard the task I find
Of governing it well.
-- Louisa May Alcott.

We celebrated ‘Traditional Day’ at work today on account of Diwali. I myself would rate the saree as one of most graceful and elegant traditional Indian dresses around. I love it!
Ever since childhood, I have been fascinated by the saree, and almost intuitively seemed to know how to wear it, the first time I wore it. Or probably, not really intuitively. As a kid, one of my favourite hobbies was to imitate my mom when she would drape a saree. That must have made for some good practice!
Ahem, hearing me talk, one may imagine I wear a saree everyday or something! Once a year is more like it, and that too, only on special occasions. High as I find the saree on the ‘loveliness’ factor, the ‘comfort’ factor is a bit of a deterrent. I can’t trust myself to do a day’s work in a saree –- strut around and gather compliments, is about it! :)
Anyway, enough about the saree (lest I sound like a ‘my favourite Indian dress’ essay). Would like to wish everyone a verrrrrrrrry Happy Diwali! May the new season be full of bright new hopes and much good cheer!
