You would have taken a pic of tamil women wearing nearly 2-3 metres(!!) of flowers in her platt and having heavy jewellry in a NORMAL day with a daily wear saree..
Most of the tamil women love jewellery and flowers!!!

Have you heard the song"If you are going to San Francisco, be sure to wear some flowers in your hair..."
so perhaps it's all ladies. But yes more so amongst Tamil and all south Indian ladies. I love the smell of jasmine in my hair.

But hmm.. u r a woman too?!! It did not strike me! haha!!

Shantanu, I will choose to take that as a compliment....that my writing does not have gender bias.

ShantanuDas said...

True! In fact some writings do convey the gender of the person... if the reader is experienced enough.. yours did not.. true!

Oohh!! Never got such a loooong and nice comment! Thanks! But really it is not so great.. like for eg I would like to write more about the places I visit.. or names of flowers and so on.. but do not feel like writing that much myself when the net is full of that already.. :-)

I went to your profile and saw you have three blogs..all 3 very soothingly coloured and designed...I think I will keep visiting you too now...on!

Net may provide all required info..But still, according to me, expressing, one's view, thought, opinion makes a comparative difference from the info available on net..so I feel, U need to share everything, what all u come across or what all u feel or what all General Knowledge u ve:) It gives immense pleasure to ur own self..Have a Good Day:) Bye:) Tata:)
