Through the sea of colours, a bright fuchsia pink catches my eye as an elegant lady walks past me towards the front row. She’s wearing a pink organza silk saree with a splash of embroidery. A contrasting green Banaras net pallu and blouse compliment the pink – just as foliage does to flowers – completing the look. As I gaze admiringly at the way the fabric falls, I hear applause breaking out and realize the winner has been announced.
It comes as no surprise when I see the graceful swish of fuchsia pink moving toward the podium for accepting the award. She’s a winner, all right!
