I know that. Trust me its the same scene in my house.
why would you want them to speak shudh Hindi! when the reality is different most Indians dont speak pure Hindi even with their kids, they always speak English especially the educated and the high class!
even if they belong to a different era even at that time British used o rule India so still!
about the dress i am more concerned about the changing century then the dresses theme selves first they said it was 18th century then piya said 200 years ago means 19th century and in sbs the anchor said 170 or 180 years ago!
btw the dresses can be explainable as i said they were ruled by British at the time! so they bound to wear tradition and western clothes too
What I am saying is that I think it is over used. Stuff like "Sinking into the ablyss"
C'mon who says that?
And I wasnt serious about the shudh hindi thing.
Highlight on the word 'too'. It would have been better if they had shown Maithili wearing Indian stuff too.
And I can relax with the Maithili thing, but ABHAY who was a peasant wore victorian style stuff?
I am not asking him to wear dhoti-kurta or anything. Normal pant and shirt would have been okay too. Anything that is not so in-your-face victorian. THAT I object to.
And Indians wern't THAT influenced by the British that even peasants wore such stuff.
Just my POV.
i get you now! but still maybe she was still young and loved the western cloths more
about Abhay maybe he was wearing a hand out of Maithli's dad
btw people do get influenced by those who are around them , if you follow up the fashion globally , you will notice that apart from their own traditional cloths everyone around the world used to follow similar trend!
Underlined: You're joking, right?
LOL. In the 18th century, Hindu royalty and Upper class nobility was hyper-conservative, with women being "purdah-eers" who didnt venture out of their Inner chambers without a screen over their faces. And the only people who'd get infulenced by the British was the royalty of the Princely States, who were the chief trading partners of the EIC. They didnt wear Victorian clothing for sure! NOT gowns
Besides, in the 18th, the British were just beginning to settle, they werent much important to infulence the, er, "fashion" sense of the 18th century Conservative, Mleccha-phobic public.
There. I hope that settles it.
ok i am not Indian so i have no idea of what you are talking about @bold from what ever i seen , historical movies, indian sculptures. ..etc .Indian Hindu women never wear conservative attires! or cover their faces, cause indian attires are never consrevative, the sari, the choli, ..etc they always expose the women bodies to max!, at those time western gowns were more conservative! ( no offence to any one, i apologize if i did)
@blue does that mean everyone was the same , i dont think so!
