    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.

    Dear Sister @iyerviji
    Kudos to your post on sarees.

    2. A Very nice glide from dream to beauty to draping saree to achieve beauty par excellence. I read in your page of Face Book - some two years ago about keeping inner self pure so that the glow on face would automatically get established without having to spend effort and money on expensive cosmetic products.

    3. It is true the very type of saree, it’s colour on body and border and the way it’s draped can create a kind of allure.

    4. I remember to have read that there are over 108 ways of draping a saree.
    For more look at The many ways of draping a sari
    5. A given saree can be seen draped differently in different states in the Indian Union.

    Thanks and Regards.

    The most important think I omitted to mention I’m my previous response.
    It is always better to appreciate the beauty orand aesthetics slightly differently to have better appreciation.
    It is not “ you look beautiful in this saree”
    It is always “ this saree looks more beautiful on you”
