Wachi left a funny comment today:
Indian women wear Saree only to open at crucial spots. They wear minimum of six meters of Saree, but they don’t cover their total body. Sexiest dress in the world is nothing Saree. We have population explosion, because we have Saree!
I don’t fully understand his comment, but I think what he is trying to say is that, just from the pure effectiveness point of view, as measured by the population explosion in India, saree is the sexiest dress ever.
The average birthrate in the world is about 20 births/1000 persons; the Indian birth rate is about 23 births per 1000, so the extra 3 births per 1000 is attributable to the sexy sarees that Indian women wear!
Also, the world population growth rate has gone down over the last 30 years and the number of women wearing sarees has gone down over the last 30 years; coincidence? I think not.
