Day 40 ‪#‎100sareepact‬
Am setting off for a conference wrapped in this soft much worn yellow Lucknowi Chikan cotton saree. The saree belonged to Nani, my husband Rahul Singh Rawal’s maternal grandmother who was quite the matriarch. Amma inherited it from her and gave it to me lovingly to wear today.
There’s a particular pleasure in wearing a garment that comes down generations and the simplicity of this classic Chikan, which was probably used as everyday wear, makes it even more special for me. Also draws attention to how well our elders cared for their possessions and how careless many of us are in comparison!
