The primary reason for wearing clothes is protecting ownself from extremes of weather. Then there are many other factors.
 
 
 
If that is  so then people in warm countries like India should have been wearing shorter and more revealing clothes . what we see is that people from colder climates instead wear shorter dresses Geek
 
Gol maal hai bhai saaab Gol Mal hai--- Wacko
 
The reasons behind wearing clothes could be
 
- weather
- culture
- religion
- covering certain parts
- fashion
- comfort
- requirement like in office
 
short and long maybe more related to culture, religion, fashion, comfort than lets say weather. note that in cold climate people do wear less revealing dresses.

It's nothing but a social more. Imagine if clothes were never part of the accepted norm. Nudists would point to the clothed ones as the outcasts LOL

Abt dressing ,its all about paying respect to the people around you..the way you look gives people an opportunity to draw a conclusion,people dont judge/bother what u wearing inside lol cos we all are judgemental..,As King-Anu said,its all depend on our culture and customs of that place/mood!Smile

great topic. i understand the need for indian women to wear western clothes for comfort and to blend in. No issues there, but it's silly if they wear western clothes thinking they actually look very pretty in them. Western clothes and hips that stick out don't go well together.Smile
 
 
What an indepth and thought provoking analysis. lol. So "hips that stick out" should be the reason Indian women not wear western clothes. I dont think topic starter was thinking on those lines.

And what should be the equivalent point in case of men? Why should desi men not wear shorts? because of Anil Kapoor like hair all over? lol.
 
 

oh thank you.LOL

hey, i'd go with a hairy James Bond any day than a chikna salman khan or a shahrukh khan. I think guys should be masculine, not girlie-like. Of course AK is an exception. But then aren't gorillas a different species altogether?.LOL

I agree. Still "more" came from "kisi ore". That ore was points that I mentioned. lol.
 
Now you imagine David Dhawan without clothes. This is another use of clothes. to protect your eyes for visual disturbance.

Wasn't India a trendsetter of sorts when Slumdog Millionaire became a global phenomenon? It popularized Bollywood films, Bollywood outfits and Bollywood dancing across the globe. So many westerners also now have Bollywood dancing at their weddings. So many western dance shows are having Bollywood dances.

 

India has also set trends in the culinary world. Chicken Tikka masala, doner kebab and the most awesome curry fries are quintessential British pub grub that is inspired by Indian trends. Indian food is trendy and popular in the states also. Drinking Chai tea and chai tea lattes is the in thing amidst hipsters, all inspired by desi chai.

 

Yoga is a global trend. People around the world are enjoying Hot Yoga. That's also a trend from India. Many "green" and "anti-Pharmaceutical" people are turning to alternative medicines like ayurvedic herbal cures or homeopathy, again trends with Indian roots.

 

When Ravi Shankar taught George Lennon the sitar, the sitar became a trendy instrument. Ravi Shankar was a legend in many indie music circuits and there are many indie bands influence by sitar , tabla and classical Indian beats.

 

If we look at history India has set trends in arts, architecture, culture etc.

 

So I don't get where we conclude that India is not a trend setter. Perhaps by myopically narrowing down on "fashion" as the only place where one can set trends, you're perspectives have been whitewashed by western influences. :P

forget just trends. We gave the world things like kama-sutra, important things that go beyond mere trends and get to matters of lifestyleLOL. We also gave the world a new way to make a living ie. po*n industry. Thanks to our long hot climate.LOL

personally i think western females look better in revealing fashion, whereas Indian women look better when such revelations are left for the imagination. So i am glad the twain dont meet in terms of fashion.
