Perseus,Sorry to be disagreeing with you,but this is simply not true.
Consider that NINETY percent of the Indian populace lives in village,a mere 8% in cities and ONLT 2% in the four metropolitan cities.
I am a Sikhini married to a Rajesthani,living in a small village near Delhi in Haryana! I can& do wear jeans/skirts when I go to town but I neither wish to offend nor draw unnecessary attention in the village nor in Faridabad,so I dress conservatively in a salwar Kamiz or a sari which,along with ghagras is the normal dress in the area-and I'm just 15 minutes away from the capital city!!
BTW=Personally,in very hot weather,I find,ghagras & saris much more comfortable (and airily cool) than the so called modern outfits!!
I loved your reply, so true, every word of yours. I understand what you are saying and therefore find this whole thread of arguments very strange..
I have stayed in our family house in the village every few years and have enjoyed the simplicity of the people, yet the intensity with which they believe in what they believe in. Some beliefs are very old fashioned, some are remarkably modern. But great people to be with, sure you cannot discuss nuances of Son of Sardar versus Jab tak etc, nor the latest brand of wine and cheese, but they have their topics and they are no fools as Sanchi and some Forum members seem to think.
Great post. CHEERS.
