The Indian wife
A young ,happy indian wife.
I began to think,in India, just going by the type of attire n look, it is quite possible to say where the person is coming from. In the same pic, if the pallu (not shown here, its on the other side of the shoulder) is on the right, and also covering the head, its a north indian (marathi, gujurati, ..). If on the left, its south indian. A salwar khameez, then its punjabi. A bigger bindi, could be bengali. No Bindi, could be christian or muslim. With sari going in between legs, could be telugu or any coastal people. Wow thats a whole lot of people we are talking about.
I guess now, a general statement could not be said. All are crossing borders and reserving their traditional clothes only for marriages and other festive occasions.
