Are you a newbie to the world of sarees?
Are you the one who can’t differentiate between a Kanjeevaram and a Kota???
Do you need 3 people to help you wear a saree???
And 12 pins to keep it on?????
Do you fret and loose sleep when you have to wear a saree???
But I hope you do follow football, Because what I’m going to do, is to draw some analogies…
Coz…Walking in a saree is a lot like playing football…
Follow these and you are ready…
#1 Wear Heels
Ever seen a footballer’s shoes? Well football shoes generally have cleats that are about 3/4 of an inch long. They are often used by players who play on turf fields because they provide spring and traction and a better grip on harder turf surfaces. Spikes also give football players a physical advantage and confidence…
Same applies to you….Studies show that height increases confidence….
So go and get yourself some pumps!!
Footballers never look at their feet or the ball while running or dodging…
Similarly look up gals…and don’t worry about your steps!
# 3 Use your hands!..
The trick here is to use your hands to your advantage…
#4 Never move around the whole ground…stick to your place…;)
Every Player has his own place. They do not run around the whole ground. Similarly stick to your comfort zone..when in a sare. Despite of what they show on the TV, there is really no need to run behind a car, when you can barely walk….
And in the end just take pride in whatever you are and you’ve won the game…..oh!! I mean the heart …;)
