Getting dressed up, Desi-style

Thankfully it's not me in the sari. Not 'til Halloween, anyway...

My former roommate Pujya (right) helps fix a sari on her friend Tennille before they head for a wedding reception. Pujya may be teaching me how to wrap a sari since I am going to be dressing like a woman this Halloween (2010 is an even year, no?), and India does conveniently have a traditional sect of cross-dressers, the hijras.

Also, sis, I may need to borrow some gold to pull this one off proper-like.

    I can show you how to wrap a sari, and I have some bangles that you’d look just fetching in, and some stick-on two-tone velvet bindis that you can choose from to really make a splash. Will you wear your hair up? I just hope you’re getting your choli really, really fitted.
