Unlike other brides she chose to wear 25 years old saree, of her late mother. “Since my childhood I was inclined towards the logic/reason behind our customs. With time, I came to know how ancient, authentic and exquisite saree is. Specially, the silk ones.” Elaborating further she says,” mothers hold a special place in each child’s life. It is my mother who has inculcated love and respect for Indian values and customs. She was highly educated. In those times she taught me not to believe and follow anything blindly. There is a valid and scientific reason behind every ritual. I believe, It’s she, who has laid the foundation for me, to be a yoga teacher, in my childhood. “
Mom, Memories and Marriage
Remembering further Sushmita adds,” The prominent memories I have of her is playing with her pallu as she was often draped in beautiful sarees, even at home. Her pallu was the biggest shelter for me in my high as well as low times. I remember, My mother used to look divinely beautiful in silk sarees specially at poojas and functions. Her love for Banarasi silk sarees was phenomenal. Her style and elegance used to attract me and that instilled the love for Banarasi sarees in me. My mother wore an elegant Banarasi saree in her marriage. It was reddish maroon in color with golden zari bel pattern all over it. The pallu is heavy and quite lavish. Wearing her saree on my wedding day was an extremely emotional feeling for me.”
