Two years ago on a cruise there was large Indian group onboard and the ladies all wore sarees on formal night (and some other nights, too). It was fabulous. They got many admiring glances, but not as many as the Japanese group on the Dream one year who wore drop dead gorgeous kimonos. What a beautiful way to express your culture or share someone else's.

Wannna' talk about guys in kilts?

Here is the picture of your Sari. I really like it. I worked in Fremont California for a while and there is a large Indian community there. I loved going into the Fabric store such beautiful fabric.

Of course, Saree is considered formal dress in India, you can see that politicians also wear saree, or any governmental offices have officers in sarees as well.
