The Sari

It is not worn only in weddings and ceremonies.
It is also worn at construction sites, with sand, gravel.

It is not always studded with sparkling beads and diamonds.

Sometimes it is parched with dirt, the pallu carelessly folded up to hold the weight of heavy pots.

It isn’t always a significance of posh attire, grandeur and wealth galore.
It often describes hardworking nights and days filled with anxiety and uncertainty.

Some find it beautiful with bindi and earrings,

While some find an indescribable solace in its simplicity.

Occasional sophistication or subtlety?

Attitude or attire?
