Madisaar

Madisaar (c)ramaswamyn.com

This is an unique way of tying the saree by brahmin women … and its also to do with 9 yards of saree length as against usual 6 yards.

I always wonder how they manage to walk and many times with good pace too. Practise makes one perfect i guess !!

  1. Nice photo of the stationary woman – the blur of traffic really sets her off. With regard to her sari – when you do something long enough, it becomes second nature – or, like you said, practice makes perfect.

    Although, with me, sometimes practice just means I learn to do my mistakes really, really well!

    Heh. Heh.

    Ram: I’d pass the compliments on the photo composition to my son. Thanks Jacob.

  2. Madisaar has atleast three versions even amongt brahmins. Iyer Kattu, Iyengar Kattu and Madwa Kattu. You can find all three of them in Triplicane area though the Iyer Kattu could be easily noticed in Mylapore.

    Thinking of it, a madisaar like kattu is also prevalent amongst non-brahmins downsouth.

    Ram: Oh thats news to me about the practice in Down South.
