Our many sari selves
Border&Fall's proposed film series on sari draping may need more layers
The sentimental spark and emotionally warm responses that the sari evokes in contemporary India and among its non-native admirers are irrefutable. The fact that fewer young (or middle aged) women from all classes now wear it regularly but only as a celebratory or ceremonial garment is equally irrefutable. Evidently it seems there is a bridgeable gap between these two realities and that if we work in the right direction, we can close that gap.
