Being an Indian, of course I love sarees and it is my passion to collect sarees from different Indian states whether its kantha,bandhani,patola,banarasi,kanjivaram,upada,ikkat,phulkari........the list is endless.So I have been looking out for a net saree for quite some time, one glance and I know for sure this is the one for me.My heart is racing because in my mind I have already decided that I want it, and once I really like something then my dreams are dominated with the images of the said.So I am just hoping that its in my budget,fingers crossed and voilaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa, its only for Rs 4000........ I am really happyyyyy but without showing too much excitement, I try to haggle and the best price that he can offer me is Rs 3500...........so what do I do, of course I buy it,sillies!!!
After a successful purchase at a very reasonable price, I am very excited because I know that at a branded showroom the same would cost me not less than Rs 8000 or more. Next on my agenda is to buy fabric for myself, because my cousin's wedding is coming up and I want to present myself in best of my fineries, I come across this stall which has some of the most beautiful and colorful fabrics chanderi, brocade, satins, animal prints,georgette,crepe........breadthtaking...... you name it and its here and the prices are to die for.I bought brocade in hot pink color at Rs 350 per meter and animal print very much in vogue at Rs 120 per meter.As i move foward i come across this shop which sells fabric for men's sherwani, prices start from Rs 300 to Rs 900 per meter.So all you grooms head towards mangaldas market, you will be amazed by the variety stocked here.
