Once i got the opportunity to visit rajasthan with the help of my very close friends and there I got a chance to saw their unique tradition, culture, their Folk Dance, there palace, way to maintain artifacts, and the most attracting thing is there women dressing and how they drape their gorgeous sarees (whilst simultaneously trying to keep hold of some extremely cute and wiggly toddlers!). The Rajasthani style is a fusion between tribal and regal, the fantastic printed patterns mixed with splendid, heavy jewelry. These beautiful women are also extremely modest and cover their heads when in the presence of men or elders.
To cover their heads women either use the loose end from their saree (pallu) or use an odhni if they are wearing a ghagra (a long skirt worn with a top or blouse). The odhni is a speciality of Rajasthan, one end of this ten foot piece of fabric is tucked into the ghagra whilst the loose end is taken over the right shoulder and gracefully placed over the head. The colors and patterns are particular to their caste and the occasion.
A ghagra is a long skirt worn in Rajasthan, this style of skirt starts of narrow at the waist and as you go down it gradually increases in width and flares out. The width of the skirt and the number of pleats it forms is said to symbolism wealth and social status. If you spun around wearing one of these it would fly up and spin with you and you’d most probably feel like a princess.
The style of Rajasthan’s women is unique and extremely colorful, it was an absolute privilege to see these beautiful women dressed in their best. I would love to someday learn the stories behind those printed patterns and understand why specific colors are worn for specific occasions.
This is one of the enchanting things about my new home, there is so much diversity here in India, every state has its own culture, customs and festivals. There will always be another culture to discover, a tradition to be intrigued with and where ever you go in India, there will always be something that leaves you absolutely speechless.
