Sari stacks

Visited the Numaish - 2010 with my neighbour aunty, and boy, what an experience - even for a Bombay girl it was an overwhelming experience - 3 hours of walking and we hardly covered a fraction of the 2500 stalls - and the crowds - what do I say - this happens only in India.

This picture was from a stall of the Bengal cottons - what weaves and what colours - absolutely brilliant - if I did not have two dozen sarees dying to be used in my wardrobe, i'd have gone ahead and bought some. On second thoughts, I might go back on a weekday and buy a couple - especially one off white and gold, and a traditional Bengali red!

Adding two more pics for Indian saree lovers...

This exhibition is on for some more days in Hyderabad, so if you are here, then do make it a point to visit this.

An article in The Hindu about this exhibition.
