It is absolutely amazing to share that one of our readers’ experience – here are her exact wordings – I don’t have write any intro here!
“Thank you very much for bringing these articles of the rare book to us. I have been a Mahaperiyava devotee for a while now and am even an avid reader of Deivathin Kural. However, I had always been in a ‘cat on the wall’ situation with respect to giving up the “salwar kameez”. In the past 2 years, I had felt the urge to give it up and completely convert to sari several times but kept postponing it for “later” as Periyava has pointed out, for the sake of convenience. This sunday, I woke up and read this article first thing in the morning and was shocked to know this is how Periyava felt about the so-called ‘cover-all’ salwar kameez. It gave me the push to make the switch immediately. Donning the ever graceful sari for the past 3 days now and pray for Mahaperiyava’s blessings to continue forever!
Thanks again for the eye-opener. I really had no idea until I read this. (If it matters to anyone reading this, I’m 29. Happily married and mother of 2 kids)”
Hats off to you Smt Umadevishankar for what you have done!! It is hard to be a true Periyava devotee – seriously!! This is not an easy change – particularly for women.You took a brave decision – quite laudable.
I am sure Periyava will be with you to guide you.
