This is a repost of the last. The page did not turn out as nice as I had hoped. The mistake has been noted and duly corrected. Hopefully this one would be more appealing.
I cannot and do not wear my “indian-ness” on my sleeve. Yet, there are some mementos that I have kept that are a whiff of the fragrance of my beloved home country. Ask any first or second generation mom of Indian origin and they would tell you that they love dressing up their kids in ethnic wear for special occasions. When I dressed up my little doll in an Indian dress, I was almost in tears.

I hope She will grow up to love the bright colours, textures and patterns of Indian fabrics. I hope it will remind her of her roots and she will be stronger for it. Dressing my daughter in ethnic wear is one way I keep India in my heart.
Do you have any mementoes that you have kept in your heart?
