Did I mention that my grandparents were missionaries in India? In fact, my grandfather and my father (and most of his four siblings) were born in India. We have numerous photos of various family members wearings saris or salwar-kameez (they also lived and worked in the area that is now Pakistan). My grandmother gave me a sari and dressed me in it for school “show and tell” day when I was eight or so. I still have the silk, but couldn’t wear it properly for anything, which is why this helpful “How to wear a sari” video from Nita’s Wide Angle View of India caught my eye. But I think I’m safer with the pretty blue salwar-kameez my nice husband brought me several years ago from a trip to Miraj.
