“In the national flag of India, the top band is of Saffron color, indicating the strength and courage of the country. The white middle band indicates peace and truth with Dharma Chakra. The last band is green in color shows the fertility, growth, and auspiciousness of the land.”
Indian Independence Day (August 15th)… Its the day when we got our Freedom…A freedom of speech, a freedom to work, to breath…such an auspicious day…
This is my first ever post on Independence Day….. And I am blessed to have this platform where I can open my heart and talk about “how proud Indian I am”.
In this post, I want to highlight a backbone of our Country, Heart of our Land, Soul of our Nation, an “Indian women”. A modern Indian woman is proud, fearless, brave, courageous, independent, intrepid, bold, and valiant (represents Saffron color in the flag). She loves their nation. She can not hear a single word against their country.
I am representing an Indian woman who takes care of her children and family, who works hard day and night to manage their household, who knows her rituals…She respects them, follows them, celebrates them and yet she is modern and calm, by her mind, her soul, her body (represents White color in the flag), not just with clothes and artificial things. … She proves herself at every stage of life.
She respects everyone whether its women or men. She believes in women supporting women, women empowerment, and an equality. Women empowerment doesn’t mean to dominate others. She is as strong and equal to men, and sometimes she is ahead of them. But she respects everyone. A good daughter, caring sister, trustworthy friend, loyal wife, obedient daughter-in-law, and an ambitious colleague (represents Green color in the flag).
This is me, this is us, this is an Indian woman.
In this post, I am sharing my country’s colors through our attire and accessories. The love and culture of my country. This is a very sensitive post for me and I am so happy that I am able to share my feelings through this post.
We have tried to bring all the cultures and styles together in this post and presenting to you as an inspiration….so that you can style your day, not only on Independence day but also for day-to-day work and outings.
I feel so proud when I wore this color and I think my skin tone looks flawless with this tricolor. My friends chose a different style to inspire you all so that you can select whatever style you want.
Sushma is totally into Indo-western, while I and Vrushali are into western office style but both different look. She likes skirt and I am a trouser fan.
My outfit is ready to rock for formal meetings, events, presentations, dinner date etc. Personally, I am a fan of pant and shirt. During my working days, this was my most repeated attire and wearing my favorite style in this tricolor is very energetic and feels good to me.
Vrushali says: “When I was thinking of what I would wear to an Indian Independence day party, I knew I didn’t want to go the traditional salwar-kameez outfit because that would be very easy. So I looked in my closet to find any pieces in any of the tri-color colors. And I found this really old green skirt I had from Forever 21. I built my outfit around it. Since the skirt was formal I wanted to dress it down. So I added a white tee. The orange sunglasses add the pop of saffron without being too obvious. Because the outfit already had two striking colors I kept the accessories in neutrals. The black fringe earrings reminded me of the traditional jhumkas and they were the perfect finishing touch to the look.”
Sushma says: “Saree is the most sassy and classy outfit which is never out of fashion. It can be draped in different styles and this time I choose into western by pairing with western wear and a westernized drape style to add that chic glamour.”
