The quintessential Sankranthi look

January 14, 2019

Sankranthi for me has always been associated with huge, colourful muggus (rangoli). Every year me, my mom and a few cousins would try to select a muggu that was bigger and better than last year, buy colours and start our mornings with this back breaking work. Yes, back breaking indeed! If you thought putting a rangoli was an easy task, well it’s not. We would always be a little extra ambitious, choose huge complicated ones, and mid way curse ourselves for not sticking to something simple. Dad would get us hot cups of tea while we were busy discussing patterns and colour schemes. Those chilly early mornings hold a special place for me, full of memories of festive cheer and fun!

Apart from delicious food that was specially prepared for the festival, new clothes were what we looked forward to the most! The classic Sankranthi outfit was, is and shall always remain the traditional langa voni (half-saree).

I still have my old ones lying around, but I wanted to fashion something new from all the traditional clothes lying in my cupboard. So I picked the blouse of a pattu-saree, a lehenga from another set, a dupatta from a salwar set, put them all together – and voila! I had my quintessential ‘telugu’ look ready for the festive weekend!

How do you like it? Have a great festive weekend!
