    I wore saree to work


    1. I draped saree at office. In haste the side pleats were too loose. With more experience the hip pleats can be tight and I can get 5th pleat

    2. 4th pleat was hiding. I had to use extra safety pin to make it visible as possible. I think this is because hip pleats were done poorly

    3. I need to avoid pinning the slacks I wore below petticoat. When nature called I lifted the structure and safety pins open and flew away.

    4. Saree was draped barefoot, then I wore flats. Saree kissed floor but when I did lunchtime walks I saw that saree was up to ankles

    5. I work with so many Desis, no one made any comment.

    6. when I went outside for walk one 30 year old lady said I looked nice.

    6b. Then a Hari Krishna lady who wears saree with sneaker and up to her mid calve stared at my drape while walking across me and talking on her phone. Perhaps she wanted to learn the simple nice drape.

    6c. A young, reasonably handsome young man looked at me little longer. When waiting for Coffee order he stood little closer to me. Unsure what this means.


    Lessons learned
    1. Avoid cotton petticoat. It creates friction in movement

    2. today I got paper towels in bathroom to cover changing room floor. This is not enough. Next time I will get inexpensive and large craft paper to cover the floor when changing into and out of saree.

    3. Since this is cotton, I may put this for wash because am paranoid about how many germs are on it. I avoided touching ground. And I changed into and out of the saree at work

    i liked 6, 6b, 6c. :)

    For lessons learned 2, try putting those newspapers or pamplets that come in the mailbox. (Are you in the US?)

    very graceful. I am not very expert in the saree draping, but I dont think i analyse this much. Very nice!

    There ought to be a celebration as
    World office Saree Day.
    We have December 21 is celebrated as World Saree Day.

    To commemorate the difficulties and the way
    You could circumvent difficulties in draping
    With numerous safety-pins & other accessories
    It would be in order - a day - dedicated for its celebration.

    I think i am not supposed to write much here
    As saree draping subject is exclusive
    Ladies’ DOMAIN



    But do not mind the home page IL banner
    Is devoid of saree image
    But of energetic intelligent young ladies & young mothers.​
    During my working in North every year, the staff would celebrate SATHYANARAYANA POOJA . Over 49% of 300 staff members were ladies mostly maharashtrians and few keralites ( stenographers).

    For commuting by jampacked local trains, Shalwar Kameez is the standard attire worn by ladies. But on the aforsaid pooja celebration Day after reaching office, all ladies staff would drape sarees and few even drape it in between legs.

    Many ladies staff for forenoon session of office would not be available as they would be mutually helping their friends in draping saree and adjusting pleats for hours on end!

    Dull interior of office would get a face lift with ladies staff bedecked their head with champa -chameli, criss crossing entire day within office premises participating in pooja and later serving food on banana leaves followed by variety entertainment.

    yes I’m in US

    I like the old newspapers under. Will keep them handy.

    I felt I had to analyze because so many things I expected didn’t happen but so many things I didn’t expect did happen
