Just a very quick post as to what I wore yesterday and today. Excuse me today because I my hands are extra full. So let the pictures do all the talking.

This is what I wore yesterday
Chikan Saree: Seva, Lucknow
Jewelery: Bought from dad
This is what I wore today
Saree: Neelambari, Delhi
Jewelery: Bought from dad
Now this is my treasured picture. It is my first picture with Guruji in Bali.
Had worn the same saree then.
This is my super treasured picture. It is also the wallpaper of my laptop. Whenever, I look at it, Guruji is right there with me. HIS eyes talk. Can you see how ecstatic I am to be shot next to HIM?
Bliss to be sitting near his feet.
These are few more of my Bali pictures.
And a few at home.

I am in Saree mode these days. It is my niece’s wedding functions for good 7-8 days. Yesterday was Mehendi. Yours Truly is working round the clock. Somehow managing the work front during the day time, functions, home and family front, blogging, own workout, meditation, blahhhh…I am super woman for sure. Barely getting few hours of sleep. Missing my time with my girlfriends. I need my dose of some peaceful time with Guruji, some quality time with my boys, more gossip with my sis on phone and chirpy stories of my (almost) two year old nephew, who, now talks full sentences.

This is what I wore yesterday.

Pure Zari Kota Saree: Designer Ragini Singhania. 
Jewelery: Do I need to say? Obviously, Bought from dad (Kindly do not be under misconception that it is borrowed gifted by dad)

The small mirror you see behind me has a history/story. It is my darling grandmother’s mirror. I have it as her memory. It has inlay work of ivory. 

Now I must re emphasis, how our traditional weaves totally stand out. So many people there (not even known to me- groom’s relatives etc) came to me specially and told me, that my sarees totally stand out. They are class apart. Yes, I agree. Do you?

Color white (and Fuschia) are my all time favorite in Saree (I don’t have to say it again and again). And if you have been reading my previous posts, you exactly know what kind of sarees I fall for. But what I am going to tell in this post is something more. In traditional weaves, my top most favorite (like really really favorite- to die for, irresistible) is Chanderi Saree. Now I must tell you that this hand woven traditional saree is not very easily available and not many people are as crazy about it as I am. When I go hunting for these, 99% shopkeepers do not have it. You know why? Because they do not get huge profit margins on these as they get selling cheap embroidery stuff. But Chanderi Sarees are exquisite. They are like a dream. And they are bloody expensive. They look simple but they can cost you a bomb. So only very discerning few would go for it. Only the ones who have a taste for it. So I sometimes travel to Chanderi specially and get some breath taking sarees all the way from there to add to my collection. You could say, I am addicted to them.

I had first worn this Chanderi Saree, in Bali, when I went for my advanced course with Guruji- Sri Sri Ravi Shankar (The light of my Life)

With the love of my Life- Divine Grace- The Supreme Power Himself.

Yesterday there was another Pooja in the family, where I wore the same. Here are few of those pictures.

Jewelery: Bought from dad
Watch: Gift from dad

Following are few of my other pictures again in my favorite Chanderi Saree. These were again taken during my visit to the Bangalore Ashram of Art of Living. It is my second home. It is so magnificent- ethereal beauty.

There I do not carry a leather bag. But a simple cloth bag.
