Elders insist on a sari, youngsters love to wear other types of dresses and wear a sari only under duress . Amongst Indian dresses a salwar-kurta covers a person from top to toe and its very practical for work at home or outside. Its nice for a journey too as the sari pleats pose a problem in the long run. A sari keeps flowing here and there and taking care of a child wearing a sari is a challenge. Also one has to keep the pallu properly or the blouse and tummy is exposed ! Saris look gorgeous on formal occasions where one has to doll up and not do much work. No doubt a sari is a beautiful garment , so many heroines wear a sari for sensuous songs like Katrina K,Sridevi and others but would you like to wear a sari on a daily basis? PS -My collection of saris gets an airing only on formal occasions, pour in your views!!
