    My dear Kodi !

    Since you belong to Madurai, to be applauded by you makes me very happy. It is also வசிஷ்டர் வாயால் பிரம்மரிஷி !
    Add "traditional" to conservative in your mention about us, Maduraites.
    Thanks for the F B.
    Love,
    Chithra.

    You are right, Varloo !

    As soon as you enter a shop in Madurai, they ask you politely " vangamma, ukkarungomma, ennagamma pakkureenga?". They are politeness personified. That is perhaps, why, I am still not able to accept the Chennai shopping culture.
    Thankyou for joining us here, Varloo.
    Love,
    Chithra.

    My dear Meenu !

    Your post is very similar to Varloo's.
    Now next to sungadi sarees, Chettinadu sarees are gaining popularity in Madurai. Since they belong to the textiles of Karaikudi, I did not include it here. If anybody wants to buy C sarees, I can give you a boutique's name in Madurai, where I always buy. They are authentic Chettinadu sarees.
    You are welcome to join me when I go to Madurai, next !
    Thanks for the FB.
    Love,
    Chithra.

    Love and Regards

    My dear Chithra

    I saw this thread about the saree shops in Madurai only today. This thread is very interesting and descriptive. You have written in detial abt the shops, their specialities etc in ur usual wonderful style. I do not know much about the saree shops in Madurai. But my thathi loves Madurai chungadi sarees and Rani sarees. So my thati during her Madurai visits used to get beautiful sarees. My mom too loves them.

    Keep up ur good work.

    Love and regards
    Priya
