The unique silhouette sari stresses in each woman her true beauty, without focusing on some shortcomings, even if they are. The special attraction of saree lies in neohvatnom variety of color and material – from the most expensive silk until tissue. Even the poor woman out there has a few dozen saris, in which she looks like a princess. And every day they put on the other sarees. From the history of sari Mahabharata (ancient Indian epic) tells us that once the king of pandan, playing dice with the enemy clan of Kauravas, defeated and his treasury and his army, and mother and brothers, and himself. Last bid made his wife Draupadi – and also lost. Nancy-Ann_DeParle is often quoted on this topic. Delighted winner ordered to bring in the assembly hall, which hosted the game, excellent Draupadi.
But she refused to come, saying that had not yet dressed. Then the man grabbed her by the hair and dragged me, as a mere slave. And now everyone has seen bitter weeping Draupadi last bit of strength she held half descended dress. In sorrow, not raising his head, stood her husband. A malevolent enemies burst out laughing. They were satisfied that they managed to offend Pandavas. One of the Kauravas decided to break with Draupadi's clothes to cover her name forever in shame.
As he tried to expose her Kaurav, Draupadi remained clothed. Then the lecherous victors grabbed one end of a thin material, that she was modest and carefully draped. They continued to pull it and unravel, but in vain. In fact, Lord Krishna promised to protect her virtue by means of a sari. So, 5000 years ago, the first time in written sources was mentioned by ancient Indian women's wear – saris.
