Salwar Suit

Anush distinguishes between salwars and chudidaars.

If you use the wrong term, she will gently correct you as my grandma found out a couple of days ago.

But it is only in Chennai that they omit the kurta/ kameez bit when they refer to teh outfit- for instance- " Nice Salwar!!" or " Where did you find this chudidaar?"

It's the same in Bengal. Got used to it now.

Anush is growing up, eh. :) So does she have strong opinions about the clothes that she wears?

Hahah...guilty as charged on this one Art.
However I really dont know why we said it that way.. it was just passed on to me and I think I never questioned it..
I never used Chudi ... it annoyed me when someone said that.

she has had strong opinions on clothes for a while now- since she was 2 or so but she can be manipulated :-))
