ABC Wednesday "Y" is for 'yellow' sari

Another subway photo for you. Truthfully, I could have spent my entire time in the Big Apple underground, for this mass transit system offers photographers endless opportunities.

This young Indian woman takes advantage of a few minutes before her train arrives to make a phone call. I didn't see her talking though, and people tell me it's often difficult to get a connection underground. (OOOPs! She's not wearing a sari---see comments below--apologies for my mistake.)

Join ABC WEDNESDAY!

The contrast of blue and yellow/mustard is perfect. But, that isn't a sari she's wearing, is it?

love the colors in this!
I can usually get a connection until I get deeper in the tunnel once I get inside the train.
I wonder if this lady is listening to her voicemail? he-he...

Z, I thought it was a sari, but perhaps they're wrapped differently. Anyone know?

Hi again, readers!

I stand corrected and apologies. My good friend, Melissa, who is now working in India (check out her blog on my sidebar), wrote the following to me:

Just a correction here...
> She is not wearing a sari, but a salwar set. A sari is a single piece
> of cloth about 5-6 meters in length. A salwar set is a long tunic and
> pants with a dupata (sp) scarf draped across the front.
> Looks like you were enjoying NY.

Did you run along with a paintbrush too for the most wonderful contrasting blue. Reminds so much of the UK girls outfit and the material stores of vibrant colours. You are obviously having lots of fun.

That is a fantastic photo. So colourful.

When I first started my blog I used to check out a lot of NYC blogs (I have a thing for New York!) and I'm sure there was a subway blog. It was really good from what I remember, I think I'll have to see if i can find it...

Yes, it's called a salwar kameez—a beautiful and very forgiving garment (hides a multitude of excess pounds and I've been thinking seriously of adopting it as my everyday wardrobe). I'm catching up here, bibi, and must say I'm loving your NY photos! The colors in this one are wonderful.
BTW, there are certain stations where you can pick up a signal—mostly those that are not too far underground, I think.

I love the contrast of the blue and yellow! And I've learned something about saris and salwars. ;)

It may not be a sari, but it's certainly yellow!

Jama said...

It's certainly is a beautiful salwar Kameez!
