    It must be the dream of every individual to appear beautiful. How to look beautiful is the one of the most important questions. mind and finding out the ways to achieve the objective of having the body beautiful is the major look out of almost all of them.

    The simple way to look beautiful is to look natural. It is not true that wearing lots of makeup can really make one look beautiful. What is important is to look beautiful is by keeping the heart and mind pure in order to keep the inner self-beautiful and this in turn will attribute you with a body beautiful.

    Draping in a saree a woman looks beautiful. I had an aunty who used to bring us saree when she used to visit us. That time I was still in my teens. I used to think once I start earning should have many sarees and should wear different saree everyday.

    In the early stages it was not possible. Before marriage due to financial condition we used to get sarees only on Diwali . Me and my sister used to share the sarees. After marriage also it was very difficult to buy more sarees int he beginning. Once the children were born and they grew I got a chance to buy sarees more and used to like to collect sarees

    When I wasworking we had a shop nearby. Me and my friend used to visit the shop during lunch time and we became their regular customer. Whenever new types of sarees came they used to call us and we used to be the first buyer. Once they had taken my photo also as a regular customer and put it in their marathi magazine. I dont know where that photo is now but somewhere it is safe. I always used to get the best sarees. When I used to go to catch the contract bus ladies going for walk used to wait to see which saree I am wearing.They used to tell me they like my collection of sarees. Also the people residing near my office used to appreciate my sarees.

    During my brother in law's daughter's marriage my sister inlaw and her family went to Salem to buy sarees for the marriage. She told me also to come as they felt I am good at selecting. We went to the saree shop where they were weaving the pattu saree. I liked one blue saree which they just finished weaving and I took that saree and everyone liked it very much.

    Earlier I used to buy the sarees but after retirement I have got many sarees as gifts given for marriages. Now since I am not working not able to use the sarees. I wear only when I go for functions or marriages. Evening while going to market dont feel like taking out the saree and wear , so go in a simple saree only.

    Anyway I have worn different kind of sarees, different colours to my heart's content.

    :hello: Your story though begins with dream and beauty, yet is all about how you longed to possess and wear sarees. Certainly this story would find get related with many senior lady fellow members.

    After reading the caption I was thinking it would be of dream girl and “ sapnon ka saudhakar “. The cosmetic industry depends on female population looking for beauty aids. From head to food for application varieties of items in the form lotion, cream, powder, sticks, etc are available.

    This could be another definition of beauty.

    But the trend and fashion dictates other options ans so many prefer to have wider choice of dresses that offers comfort to work and drive.

    It is nice to know for a brief period that you turned a model.


    As a boy, I used delight wearing mom’s new sarees . From my first earnings I bought sarees cotton only one each to my mom and sister from Tata textiles in mumbai.

    Purchase of every saree or sarees is akin to an adventure or exploration and almost an ordeal to accompanying husband. Besides the role of accompanying husband would be that of a body guard..

    Some women used to spend whole day visiting almost all the shops in Dadar BB and in that process - every shop turned upside down and the entire staff would remember them.

    I remember the occasion when even after long cogitation purchase done, the moment she reaches home she would say we must get it exchanged “ for the other one”.

    @SuiDhaaga out there still wondering is it necessary to hold the phallu on forearm displaying the print as models exhibit in ads.
    Thanks and Regards.

    :hello: Addendum to #2 above.
    @Rihana in her post elsewhere discussed about merits and demerits vis a vis midriff of draping saree and her preference to wear sarees to office once in a week probably Fridays!
    @GeetaKashyap had in her response to my thread about theft in my residence stated how she loves to keep sarees and for how long the the theft of that white saree presented to her by her mother was haunting.

    In a thread* it was described how a thief was attracted by the German travel bag instead of its contents - spouse’s eight silk sarees delivered from band box.

    Saree reminds me of the days as to how I slept in comfort to her lullabies as an infant in a flexible cradle made from mother’s saree hanging from ceiling hook!
