Did you know there are over 100 ways to drape a sari?
I can still distinctly remember the first time I wore a sari. I remember feeling so beautiful and grown up (even though I was in the awkward teenage years). I had planned with my mother, for a week, on which one I would wear and why. Since then, even with all the changing fashion trends, I still prefer to wear a sari whenever the occasion presents itself. There is something so femine and elegant about the sari and it’s versatility is a testimony to its ability to survive thousands of years.

I was not a “Bernie or Bust” bro by any means, but I did vote for Bernie Sanders in the Illinois primary this past Spring. When it was clear that Hillary was going to be the Democratic nominee, there was no question that I was going to support her. Not everyone felt the same way.
