I have always looked up to this five yard wonder as a canvas on which I can do interesting things. It has paid off with this world’s longest embroidered saree, which a labour of love and a tribute to its timeless allure.”

Ask him what inspired him to come out with something like this, and he say, “I took inspiration from Draupadi’s ‘chirharan’ episode in the Mahabharata. Therefore, the motifs and work on the saree are very Indian.” Now this saree finds its way into the Limca Book of Records.
