Comments from Prof. Ashwin Thakkar

It was not only intellectual but a visual treat going through the book, ‘Indian Saris: Traditions – Perspectives – Traditions’. The book opens up with a journey, of the most colorful Indian dress, in to the historical background and takes us to the latest trends and the way in which it is draped in different parts of the country. It is amazing to see, with a renewed interest, how sculptures have had the impact on weaving. I am sure people, all over the world, will look at this truly Indian garment in a new perspective.
