Maharashtra Day Special Feat My Neonish Life.

1st May: Maharashtra Day

I am a Maharashtrian..And I am proud to be one.
But then...I am proud to be an Indian, a Mumbaite, a Woman, a Civilized Citizen, a Blogger..To cut it short I am a Proud Person. ;)
But that's not the topic of discussion today, or rather even in the future.

Today is Maharashtra Day, the day the state of Maharashtra was formed, a day that is a Public Holiday in Maharashtra.['s a Holiday.(happy dance)]

Jokes apart, let me give you a little background about this day.

The Mughal Empire an imperial power in the Indian subcontinent from about 1526 to 1757 enriched India in many ways. Whether it's the legendary Taj Mahal, the Red Fort, the Pearl Mosque or even the Lahore Fort to name a few.
But by the end of the 17th Century, internal dissatisfaction and many other cultural and religious issues had weakened the Mughal Empire.
Shivaji Bhonsale, (later coronated as Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj) an aristocrat of the Bhonsale Maratha Clan led the Marathas against the Mughals to establish a Hindavi Swarajya meaning Self Rule of the Hindu People.
In Shivaji's reign, the power of Marathas had reached its peak and covered almost one third of the Indian subcontinent.
However, after the Third Anglo-Maratha War, the empire ended and most of Maharashtra became part of Bombay State under the British Raj.
Post Independence demanded a lot of reorganisation of the regions in India.
Dr B. R. Ambedkar, the chief architect of the Indian constitution was of the opinon that states should be reorganised on the basis of language. Hence, he submitted a memorandum to the Reorganization Commission to this effect, and the Commision created the current Maharashtra state on 1 May 1960 known as Maharashtra Day.
{ History teacher would be so proud!}

Now for the fun part.
For the Maharashtra Day Special, I decided to get on board a very dear and special fren of mine, who is not only beautiful, but also very stylish.(Am I lucky with friends or wot..!)
Supriya of My Neonish Life..chk her blog out if you have not already.
She was sweet enough to put this Maharshtrian look together for So-Saree's sake. Scroll down and see for yourself.

About the outfit..
Supriya has draped a Paithani, a typical Mahrashtrian saree named after Paithan town in Aurangabad in Maharashtra where they are woven by hand. The pallu or the trail (as some of my Non-Indian frens call it) of the Paithani typically had motifs in the shape of either parrots, peacocks or lotus. But now newer and different designs are also been assimilated in their designs. The Border of the Paithani is also very typical, and most of them will have the similar square pattern.
Paithani is made from the finest of silks and was considered the richest saree of Maharashtra, as originally they used pure Gold threads to make its zari, and the cheaper variation used Silver.
Now, about the Jewellery,
The long black bead Necklace that she is wearing is called a mangalsutra, and her nose ring aka Nath are the important aspects in the styling of a Maharashtrian Married Lady.
The choker necklace called Thushi, again a Maharashtrian speciality, and the crescent moon bindi on Supriya's forehead completes the Maharashtrian look, which she has pulled off so effortlessly.

Thank you so much Supriya, I can't thank you enough.
