Thank goodness for our beautiful Parsi ladies on this rather… um, off kilter PBS television series! The show airs on Sunday nights where I live, so I had to post another image from the program where the lovely Lillete Dubey and her on-screen daughters dress traditionally for 1935. I love the rich peacock colour on the younger sister’s cotton saree, at the right.

This modern scene is so reminiscent of the pretty photographs from 100 years ago that I had to share it. I have been collecting other kinds of images on Pinterest lately, and found this in an amazing collection there, among thousands of others, mostly of the hand-loomed cottons and regional patterns that you know I love best! As summer approaches, and temperatures rise, think of these Chanderi sarees in sherbet and ice cream colours to feel cool and beautiful.

I just thought that the headline was kind of funny.
Congress is not doing too well in India and there is a faction that thinks that if Priyanka, grand daughter of Indira Gandhi entered politics, she could energize the youngens and bring new vigor to the party – especially if she started wearing cotton sarees as she is prone to do off and on.

There was a Kumbh Mela in Ujjain last month – I really wanted to go but didn’t have a chance. I have never been to a Kumbh Mela before and I hear that it is like a religious Burning man! For the uninitiated, as the story goes, when gods churned the ocean, a pot of elixir came out which granted immortality and there were five drops that spilled and those places host a huge festival each year. It is one of the largest festivals in the world.
I came across this stunning and interesting visual image taken by Rk Rao of Lady with Mudra https://www.flickr.com/photos/93762190@N00/27304925150
