In­dia sa­ree challen e

Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - Brunch - - BREAKFAST OF CHAMPIONS -

– It was a reg­u­lar Oc­to­ber day at a prom­i­nent mall in south Delhi... un­til 50 women, dressed in their best sa­rees, took to the floor and put up a syn­chro­nised per­for­mance to chart­busters like

and more. The flash mob was by Devditi, a plat­form founded by Sapna Khan­del­wal and Van­dana Gupta, to en­cour­age women to wear more sa­rees, and keep the tra­di­tion of weaves alive. Apart from the hash­tag, other Devditi ini­tia­tives have in­cluded events like Sa­ree Saga, where medi­ums like dance and fash­ion come to­gether to cel­e­brate the cul­ture of drap­ing sa­rees, so the sa­ree does not “suf­fer the fate of the Ja­panese ki­mono”.
