Traditional dress value, Saree Challenge

“Nothing could match the beauty of a girl /lady when she is in traditional dress”


Saree Challange


Do you like wearing a saree:

Begin an a typical Indian girl, it matters me a lot to look traditional because wherever i go my looks/attire define me as Indian.  So, here I am introducing myself as “Rao gari Ammadu”. Time just flys…. Those days where we use to give more importance for our Culture, Tradition, The language just to define ourselves we are from so and so state/city. Yes, I am basically from Hyderabad (Telangana), I was 12 years old where I use to wear frocks, Lehanga & Jacket, Long Skirts (in the age of 1 to 15 years preferable in India) and all of sudden when I shifted to Indore I can’t see my traditional culture much in any age groups often they prefer western wear like. Jeans, Top, Shorts, Skirts, Mini Shorts, etc. In very rear times I saw Kurtis and Sarees women’s wear.

Why Saree is most important and preferable in India? Can anyone answer this question?

 

Sari, in Sanskrit translates as “strip of cloth”, and it usually measures six to eight meters in length. originated in the Indus Valley as early as 2800 BC and today represents the national dress of countries such as India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh. Conventionally, women wear cholis, or blouses, along with a petticoat, or long skirt, under a sari. Due to the industrial revolution to avoid accidents in wheel-based machinery (Factory, bicycle, motor vehicle), many traditional wears have vanished and the paint shirt concept emerged


There are many different ways to dress the saree, although it’s commonly covered around the waist a few times, gathered and inserted into the waistband, with the remaining fabric covered over one shoulder. In South Asian countries, dressing a sari is somewhat of an art, lost on younger generations who, without the help of a grandparent or elder relative’s help, must resort to YouTube tutorials to guide them. Saree is one of the world's oldest and perhaps the only surviving unstitched garment from the past. Over the times, it has not only become an effective, glamorous all-time-wear for women, but also the ‘canvas’ for weavers and printers to create artistic weaves, prints, and jeweled or gold-silver embellishments.

Necessity of always wearing a saree for women to conserve and nurture Hindu culture

For women to conserve and nurture Hindu culture, it is necessary to always attire a saree. ‘In Hindu Dharma, extreme significance has been given to why a woman should wear a saree. Today, women do not wear sarees, but wear clothes as per the western culture; as a result, the future generation will have the impression that wearing clothes as per the western culture is the norm. To preserve and nurture Hindu culture, all women should always wear sarees as an expression of their pride in Dharma. If this is not possible, they are requested to at least wear sarees during festivals, celebrations, religious rituals, and auspicious days as per the Hindu lunar calendar. “Understand the importance of saree and wear it even though it may take longer to wear”


 Due to lack of practice [of wearing a saree], it may be initially difficult to work, but after a few days of practice, one does not find it difficult. If this were not to be so, no woman would have ever worn a saree. In earlier times, women would wear nine-yard sarees. Modern women do not like to wear a nine-yard saree. It is a matter of practice. 


Traditional wear or Saree challenge:

 These days everyone’s social media feed is overflowing with saree-clad pictures of their friends, families, and colleagues. The reason behind the saree challenge is, maintaining positivity is as important as limiting to one’s home. Therefore, people are sharing their old and throwback pictures in traditional or ethnic wear as a part of the social mead challenge (WhatsApp, Instagram).
