India is a country located in South Asia. It is the second-most populous nation which is the seventh-largest country by area, and the most populous democracy in the world. In fact, it is a land of mystery and known for its incredible history. India is not only big in terms of population but also in terms of diversity and cultural heritage.
India gained Independence from British rule back in the year 1947. A country that is well-known to preserve its culture witnessed an unexpected and shocking incident after the Delhi restaurant denied entry to a woman wearing a saree since it is not smart casuals. How insane the restaurant owners must be!?
In fact, Saree is regarded as the most famous traditional Bharatiya outfit worn by women. It is not just worn in India but women across the world have affection for this clothing. We have also stumbled upon foreigners admiring our culture by wearing sarees. The pictures and video clips have gone viral on the internet too.
In fact, the majority of people reckon a saree makes a woman look beautiful, elegant and stylish. It is indeed a perfect attire for the women due to which they prefer to wear saree on almost all occasions. As far as traditional Indian dress is concerned, we always find Saree the most attractive.
