Of course I liked the sarees the Tea delivery women are wearing in this video.
And honestly speaking, I like tea as well, not the silly green kind, robust dark brown, full bodied tea with milk and sugar.

A few weeks ago, Air India unveiled it’s new cabin crew uniforms and, as is traditional for India’s national carrier, a saree is included amongst the options for female crew. This new saree is less traditional than previous saree uniforms. The bright colours and unusual blouse design give it a lively, more efficient feel. (I have to say, I don’t like the predominant black theme in the other uniforms though.)

I love this picture for multiple reasons, let me count the ways:
(i) It is a uniform saree – she is wearing the saree to teach her first class to the semenary students.
(ii) Antique white with just a little bit of jewelery makes her look very angelic
(iii) I love how you can see the seriousness of her teaching and first time being in a saree that she will wear in front of the students.
(iv) There is the nostaligia of the only mirror on the house that is on the “safe” steel almirah – Yup.
(v) Nothing very complex here, just a beautiful picture of beautiful people.

I was looking for some beautiful sarees in 2013 Femina Miss India, didn’t find too many, but this image surely caught my eye.
Do you think I should put this picture in “uniform” category? Because I would like most women to wear this all the time.. Well, a man can dream can’t he?

I’m thinking this is a uniform saree, as the perky young lady was listed as Pallavi Patel, a stewardess for Air India. Love the bold pattern divided diagonally, and really wish we could see it in colour. Keeping it simple like her short hair and minimal makeup, the blouse is an unpatterned fabric and sleeveless. The guy with her was 13-year-old actor Sajid Khan, filming the 1966 movie “Maya” with Jay North – remembered by some of us older Americans as the kid who played Dennis the Menace on TV.
