Ah! I’ve wanted to get myself a mekhla chadar for sometime now- Apart from the Kerala ‘Mumdum Neriyathum’ which is a 2 piece saree(if you can call it that), the Mekhla chadar is the only other quasi saree that is worn in 2 pieces, to my knowledge.
Yes Vineeta, I want to wear a MK. May be I will buy one when I am in Calcutta.
I would love to gift one to my mother. But doesn’t chadar mean bed sheet, although dictionary.com also says that its a body wear.
About wearing her own this post i like it very much
About assam women waring information is good
