She’s carried you inside her for nine months and brought you into this world. She’s held your hand while you took your first steps and picked you up when you fell down. She’s packed thousands of tiffin-boxes for you to take to school, helped you with homework, and had the chocolate ready on days you were sad. She’s seen you through all of the life’s moments, and she’s still there - her words of wisdom at the ready, her smile always getting you through it all.
Do you really need a specific day to express your love for your mother? Every day should be the right day for this.
The mother-daughter bond is special, sacred, and absolutely unique. One of the aspects that define it is the sari - the first sari a young girl wears - to a school programme or Saraswati Puja - is from her mother’s wardrobe. Together mother and daughter, over the years, go shopping for saris, the mother handing on her tastes and sensibilities and even some prized pieces from her collection.
To celebrate the beautiful bond between a mother and daughter, Simaaya organised “Mothers Drape Daughters”, a programme at which actress Bidipta Chakraborty and her daughter Meghla were present. Meghla said, “She first wore her mother’s saree on her first dance performance. My favourite colour is black and blue.” Bidipta inherited a lot of sarees from her mother. She said, “I love to wear sarees in any occasion. My style is very simple. I love mostly cotton sarees with contrast blouse, with a big red bindi on a forehead and simple contemporary jewelleries to finish my look. My favourite colour is green.”
“Here at Simaaya, we have both traditional and modern saris, that would suit every taste and would compel any shopper to pick up a few. We believe that every single day is Mother’s Day, and our programme was aimed at highlighting the sweet mother-daughter relationship,” said Mr. Rachit Agarwal, director of Simaaya.
The sari never goes out of style. It is suited to every lady out there - whether young or old. Simaaya’s celebration of the sari as one of the defining characteristics of the mother-daughter relationship is sure to find much favour and appreciation.
