It was a very strange news item to be present on breakfast news!!! Why would anybody want to see these fat aunties dressed in nighties parading around... that too early in the morning.. (see its stuck in my mind so much.. i am writing about it 12 hrs later.. mentally traumatic possibly)
I dont have anything against nighties... Nighties are extremely comfortable.. i have worn nighties .. like twice in my entire life!! I dont know why but i dont wear them!!
Anyway, on this channel, they were talking about how nighties have become a rage.. everywhere with women.. they not only wear it in the house but also venture outside wearing the same!! They showed mallu women roaming around wearing them.. and one lady's husband even said.. that his wife wears it even for small functions!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Like how????????????????????? I am a mallu...and have actually seen it myself.. many many many women wear nighties and roam around.. go to the nearby shops etc.. its so weird.. how can anyone do that???????? But they do.. apparently it is considered to fashionable in Kerala!!! Its like committing fashion suicide!!!
I have been in Delhi all my life.. there, there is a slight variation to this trend... women do wear nighties outside of home.. but team it up with duppattas (god have mercy)!!! Do they think its easier on the eye or what?
Apparently, according to the news channel nighties connote emancipation of women .... basically no need to stick to saris / salwaar kameez etc.. also they were talking about how in movies it always a sign of the vamp (loose women).. and then later even heroines started wearing them!!
I have never seen anything so utterly atrocious!! And to top it all, the news channel was interviewing some store keepers.. who said that in some cities in the west, there are nighties with zippers which are in great demand!!! ROFL!!!
They have really done some thesis on this topic.. how in the world do they come up with such stories??????????Whose brainwave was it? Really!!!
