My Paati’s Saris
My Paati’s Saris
by Jyoti Rajan Gopal
Another exciting day with Paati begins with a host of fun activities done in preparation for tonight's party; threading flowers into garlands for decoration, going to the market, and helping her in the kitchen with the scent of sambar in the air. Through it all the boy finds comfort in Paati's sari, whether he's wrapped in its colors for dress-up or clutching its folds for comfort. Each sari holds a story--ones that speak to him, but most important of all they allow him just to be.
