I am amused!

...as I flick through the pages of a Fashion Magazine ( only English magazine I could find!), I see this!

...I have seen a few women sport these pants in Paris, and often wondered what the hell can it be? I was really amused to find out that they are called 'Dhoti Pants' and of course, they do look like Dhoti!

*For the uninitiated, Dhoti is a long unstitched cloth wound around the lower body, passed between the legs and tucked into the waist, especially in the rural parts of India.

You can rarely see anyone in Dhotis in urban India. Its so great that the Dhoti has travelled so far....from rural India to HI-FASHION!!!!

I liked the dhoti salwars though, they were pretty interesting...I was in awe of my elder cousin sisters...
