    Six yards of possibilities
    Is the Saree
    Six yards of possibilities
    Weave dreams into realities

    You can do traditional drape
    You can cover a fat lady
    And make them look like
    They lost weight

    You can go according to trends
    Doesn't matter how
    Flimsy your blouse is
    With saree, you shall
    Never ever offend

    You can offer matching sarees
    To a wedding party
    Make sure the MIL also gets
    A partridge in a pentry

    Ahh the beautiful saree
    There is no other cloth like it
    Ahh the beautiful saree
    Doesn't matter your size
    You can make it fit!

    Kudos to your creativity. A saree the long and short one - can kindle an anthology to raise popularity of this wear. One loves it plain and also with border and phallu. Any size can have it . The patterns on it can make or mar the wearer thin and tall or stout & podgy.

    In the genesis, saree had no companion except accessories made of gold and a green parrot
    Later additions are the blouse
    A plain white blouse would be a match always with any colour saree, any type of saree plain or printed- it is emergency blouse when no matching blouse available for intended saree to drape on.

    There could be more than hundred methods of draping saree. Google throws lot of pages with this information. In south India longer Sarees traditionally worn on occasions & rituals in altogether different style. It is known as madisaru
    When worn in this style there will not be lose end and saree would remain close and tight to the body! Temple goddesses are depicted to wearing madisaru.
    Thanks and Regards.

    This special phallu saree cost a Mercedes Benz or Rolls-Royce. Made in India.
    Look behind the saree model - at that picture frame of painting by Raja RAVI Varma.
    Who appeals to you? The model or the painting - all are poetry.
