India beauty

Our Indian friends, Hari and Hima from Hyderabad, hosted a huge party at their house to celebrate a special Hindu festival, "Guru Poornima," or "Full Moon Night festival." These beautiful women graciously posed for me in front of Hima and Hari's house in their colorful sarees.

  7. The colors are spectacular, aren't they? I wonder how the tradition of brilliantly colored Indian women's clothing began.

  9. I bought a beautiful silk sari in Varanasi in the '80's. The blouse was tailor made and like a second skin. I couldn't get my big toe in it now, but the sari still fits! I love all the colours available in saris and the beauties in your photo show the tremendous variety. Ah, India!!

  10. PS. Tell your viewers to max the photo so that they can see the luscious colours and beautiful fabrics. I think I'll go get my black silk trimmed in gold sari out of the drawer now just to reminisce!
