The Indian Saree!
History of sari-like drapery is traced back to the Indus Valley Civilisation, which flourished during 2800–1800 BC around the northwestern part of the Indian subcontinent.
The word 'sari' evolved from 'sattika' mentioned in earliest Jain and Buddhist literature as women's attire.
A sari or saree is a women's garment from India that consists of a drape varying from five to nine yards (4.5 metres to 8 metres) in length and two to four feet (60 cm to 1.20 m) in breadth that is typically wrapped around the waist, with one end draped over the shoulder, baring the midriff.
While an international image of the modern style sari may have been popularised by airline stewardesses, each region in the Indian subcontinent has developed, over the centuries, its own unique sari style. Showcased is a popular Aari (Hook-work) Embroidery Saree from the Kashmir Valley.
Asif Ahmad Parray, 16, was hit by pellets in both eyes by government forces in Hendew village of #Shopian district on May 16, 2019.
Doctors are about to remove one eye of Asif Ahmad Parray, and are not sure if he will regain vision in his other eye. Asif’s father, a 60-year-old man, is languishing in police custody since a month. His impoverished family is as worried about the expenses of Asif’s treatment as they are horrified at the cruel turn of events in the boy’s life.
Asif is undergoing treatment at SMHS hospital in Srinagar, where his sister and uncle are attending to him. Family members told KR that Asif has a four-year-old brother and a 7-year-old sister.
