When you miss a Benarasi

When you miss a Benarasi
When you miss a Benarasi

What do you do when you miss your mother land very much, when you have recently lost a dearest, loved and pillar of the family, someone from whom you learnt the very basics of Benarasi fabrics, sarees and its rich colors, someone who was always there through thick and thin.

I lost my dearest Mama ( my mother’s elder brother) some days back, he was the strength and the rock of the entire family, he was a mentor to all of us when we were growing up, not only he had extraordinary cooking skills, he had a fine eye in fashion and fabrics. Next to my mother, he was the one I got my fashion sense from. I still remember how tasteful his choices were always, and he used to research and give time to every tiniest details. He was the perfect Benarasi guy, fiesty, fun, mischievous, kind and big hearted.

I miss Benares and India a lot, but during such times, its all the more difficult to stay away from your loved ones, but that’s how life is.

So this time, felt like wearing this beautiful Benarasi Silk Dupatta (stole) with a silk suit that my mother got stitched. Its a basic simple look, just like every other Indian girl out there. This dupatta is completely handwoven, you can see how rich and beautiful the colors are done with finesse, it’s one of its kind art form, unique and world class.  I really wish I could wear this look more often, nothing else here makes me feel closer than the feel of the richest fabric in the entire world, that comes from my own city.
