The 9 days of festivity and fasting has begun. There is a little nip in the air and celebrations all around. Navratri or Nine Nights (in Sanskrit) is a festival dedicated to Hindu Deity Maa Durga. It is celebrated with much fervour in India.
It is also time for Garba, which means getting decked up in beautiful clothes and jewellery and dance with abandon. Or, if you are in Eastern India, just wear beautiful clothes, jewelleries and hop from pandal to pandal.
So, this festive season, would you stand out from the crowd and wear jute and khadi instead. Don't get alarmed. Not just yet. Turns out there are beautiful sarees and lehengas made of Jute Silk and Khadi and Khadi silk. Apparently, very fine threads of jute can be separated out and made into imitiation silk.
Have a dekko
Wishing you a very Happy Navratri!!!
