Re: Origins of the sari: a theory

Talking of times of intimacy , unlike other garments which either completely conceal and need to be completely removed at some point or other, sarees offer just enough leverage piquing male curiosity and yet allowing the female to just allow her partner savour the gradually unfolding moments over long periods of foreplay. In fact it is prescribable to keep the saree on through out the whole duration of intimacy as it does not in any way interfere as other dresses would and has a great effect on enhancing the suprise factor!

Nothing can beat a soft cotton sari in summer or a smooth silk one in winter in preserving the sense of visual suprise yet allowing a lot for touch and feel.

Dhurnari pai, it is just what we are looking for... that we open. I prefer the entire girl completely naked so that I can bask in her beauty... whereas you are just looking for a hole

I disagree, there is much more beauty in a woman who is partially clad than one who is fully naked. Moreover being fully naked for some few moments or in darkness is fine but just persisting in nudity will just prove to numb ones mind and kills the pleasure in withholding and surprise.

We are talking about unwrapping a gift, 2Goti pai... never talked about nude persistence

Re: Origins of the sari: a theory

2gud the article above is an intentional benign plagiarism.

Reread it and identify the author from his writing styles.

I picked it up up on the net from some other side and as I was reading it I was saying to myself "voila gotcha , it's you and nobody else "

I immediately contacted the person on whom I had my doubts and got it confirmed that it was written by him ,an echarchan .

All I wanna say is when you have spend a considerable amount of time at ec and read somebody's posts a lot at echarcha , it becomes damn easy to pick him out from from a bunch of anonymous people , without accessing the IP logs .

Can you pinpoint the original author?

Big-G! I can guess that by two things 1. self confession of being a virgin 2. usage of bellybutton (1, 2) which many people don't use so liberally and instead prefer navel and of course found a lot other traits in sentence formation.

He went about his work of designed something that will look marvelous to the eye but will hamper the frivolous flirtation of his wife. He presented his first SARI to his wife and told her that this is what is going to be the latest fashion trend. Little did he realize that thousands of years later his invention would still bind the entire women-folk of a nation

Once his wife started wearing the sari she realized that she no longer needed to be slim and smart-looking... on the contrary, she needs to work harder to look slimmer
as the sari did not care what it was covering ooooh it cares alright , i am yet to see a more sexy garment than a saree.
. She started hogging stuff and soon she became fat and corpulent... and men, who would never care about the clothes a woman wore, became disinterested in her as she gradually lost her beauty and elegance

When the husband realized what he had done, he just ran screaming into the jungles... never to be seen again... but it was too late... the latest trend had become a craze by then which never lost its power for years to come


Corollary: Fashion trends began in India
You are wrong on all points. theory fail. see above.

Some versions of the history of Indian clothing trace the sari back to the Indus valley civilization, which flourished in 2800-1800 BCE. One ancient statue shows a man in a draped robe which some sari researchers believe to be a precursor of the sari.

Ancient Tamil poetry, such as the Silappadhikaram and the Kadambari by Banabhatta, describes women in exquisite drapery. This drapery is believed to be a sari. In the Natya Shastra (an ancient Indian treatise describing ancient dance and costumes), the navel of the Supreme Being is considered to be the source of life and creativity. Hence the stomach of the dancer is to be left unconcealed, which some take to indicate the wearing of a sari.

Some costume historians believe that the men's dhoti, which is the oldest Indian draped garment, is the forerunner of the sari. They say that until the 14th century, the dhoti was worn by both men and women.

Sculptures from the Gandhara, Mathura and Gupta schools (1st-6th century CE) show goddesses and dancers wearing what appears to be a dhoti wrap, in the "fishtail" version which covers the legs loosely and then flows into a long, decorative drape in front of the legs [1]. No bodices are shown.

Other sources say that everyday costume consisted of a dhoti or lungi (sarong), combined with a breast band and a veil or wrap that could be used to cover the upper body or head. Some argue that the two-piece Kerala mundum neryathum (mundu in malayalam is the same as dhoti or sarong and neryath means a cloth to cover the upper body similar to a shawl) is a survival of ancient Indian clothing styles, and that the one-piece sari is a modern innovation, created by combining the two pieces of the mundum neryathum.

It is generally accepted that wrapped sari-like garments, shawls, and veils have been worn by Indian women for a long time, and that they have been worn in their current form for hundreds of years.

One point of particular controversy is the history of the choli, or sari blouse, and the petticoat. Some researchers state that these were unknown before the British arrived in India, and that they were introduced to satisfy British ideas of modesty. Previously, women only wore the one, draped cloth and casually exposed the upper body and breasts. Other historians point to much textual and artistic evidence for various forms of breastband and upper-body shawl.

It is possible that the researchers arguing for a recent origin for the choli and the petticoat are extrapolating from South India, where it is indeed documented that in some areas, women wore only the sari and exposed the upper part of the body. Poetic references from works like Shilappadikaram indicate that during the sangam period in ancient South India, a single piece of clothing served as both lower garment and head covering, leaving the bosom and midriff completely uncovered. In Kerala there are many references to women being topless, including many pitcures by Raja Ravi Varma. Even today, women in some rural areas do not wear cholis.
When the fuck did I write this shit ?? Sari is also when a south Indian is very apologetic........

Your points were already made by Lovatodasari tai... and promptly refuted. This refutation was accepted by the world by and large. Please present some new arguments and don't dig up the same points again and again
