PLEASE SWIPE AND SEE ALL THE PICS.
Thanks to the social media, I connected with loads of awesome people, in the last one year.One such person is @oindrillabanerjee .We were members of a sari group,connected on messenger, shared our numbers and had a delightful chat.I had already admired her beautiful blue Begumpuri on FB and enquired where she bought it from.She shared her friend's contact number so I could buy it online.Before,I could make up my mind on which sari to buy, I connected telephonically to Oindrilla.Thereafter she messaged me asking me to share my address as she had to courier a Begumpuri she had bought for me.I was so touched.Is pyar ko main kya naam doon???She was insistent that I should not feel awkward about it and just share.In her words “ You are very endearing, so how does it matter that we have never met and have know each other recently.
The gorgeous sari arrived.A beautiful fuschia with orange, white and black weave with a stunning pallu!!!
Last evening ( 23.3.18) we were invited to the launch of a book on Urdu poetry called “Nukta-e-nazar”, penned by dear friend Urshilla Chanana.Vinod was one of the 2 people who were to be in conversation with her and as usual was brilliant.
I wore my Begumpuri and paired it with my orange blouse with black woven border belonging to my black with orange woven border sari from Assam.Last year I wore it with a black blouse with Kantha embroidery in white,when Vinod was invited to be the guest of honour by the Rotary club Jodhpur.
My clutch replaces my potli and is a black cotton one with Kantha embroidery in white.
I wore my oxidised silver jewellery. The necklace is a row of paisleys.This and the paisleys on the clutch inspired the bindi handcrafted using black liquid with fuschia & black dots below.
