I went to Brickfields to buy my mother a saree for Mother’s Day. (I’ve just about exhausted the usual list of scents, handbags, purses, shawls, scents, handbags, perfumed toiletries, handbags, shawls.) Anyhow, one of the stores, India Silk’s, has now become my favourite after I observed its paper bag:

Isn’t that the cutest? Aww. “It’s a woman’s world.” You can say it, and we’ll all believe it, our silk saree pallus blowing in the breeze. Things like this give me hope to carry on, I tell you.
