Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme hosted by
Miz B. of  Should Be Reading.

"This is the quintessential garment for women across India, according to Asha's research, a six-yard rectangle of fabric wrapped and tucked around the body without a single button, hook, or zipper.  It can be draped in a number of ways, depending on the region, and one size is used to fit women tall and short, fat and thin.  It all sounded very democratic . . . "
