I'm just trying to maintain a level of intellectualism in whats clearly a discussion about a lot of sexy babes in Indian Sarees and clothing...
This is what I saw from the Internet, the above says this is a folklore, I find it interesting.Interesting. Where did you read that?
Sari and Blouse isn't just like that?→Sarees without a blouse were the norm in ancient India, it won't go down well in today's India though.
Thank you for telling me these.The above is pure romanticisation of the saree, I'm afraid. It all depends on how you use it. You can use it to flaunt your curves or to hide your face. The latter was a custom quite widespread in northern India (and still is in certain regions) where women cover their faces when stepping out of the house or in front of the older male members of the family. It is called 'purdah' and is akin to the Muslim veil.
The following is an image from an Indian movie called 'Jodhaa Akbar' in which the Rajput princess Jodhaa (on the left, of course) has covered her face with her sari.
It is indeed like that and it is the standard way of wearing it. However, the saree has been around for long but the blouse is a much later addition. I tired finding pictures online about how women dressed in ancient India but, unsurprisingly, there's nothing.Sari and Blouse isn't just like that?→
You're welcome.Thank you for telling me these.
