Six Yards of Pure Grace

Six Yards of Pure Grace

An ode to 'Saree': Six yards of pure grace, elegance and beauty!

The long trail of cloth, one straight single length,
no Zip, no stitch yet oozes vigor and strength!

The six yards of grace, draped perfect for the evening,
the elegance untouched, adds 'femininity' to the meaning!

The humble drape stirring the political motion,
since time immemorial, breaking the rules and the notion!

The shimmer, the glitter and sequins on it,
never overpower the struggles woven within!

The poor, the rich and in the middle,
all of us have worn it to go unbridled!

It marks the beauty of a demure bride,
it tells tale of prejudice and pride!

It signifies the poise and grace of a woman,
it shapes the curves, for sensuality to loosen!

It covers the beauty with all its layers,
yet oozes the oomph and call for glares!

'Saree my love ' you are the most beautiful attire,
a timeless fashion, which refuses to retire...
