It's nice to wear as an evening gown.

I have no problem with traditional/national dress in two places. One: in their own country and two: during ceremonies or cultural events in other countries. But I look disapproving at wearing clothes of other countries as every day dress in my country. For example India's women (some not all) wearing their traditional dress after immigrating to my country shows a disrespect for my culture and a lack of trying to assimilate into the country of where they now live.

But that is my opinion....

But other countries do not have traditional dress or they do not wear traditional dress any more and just wear clothes that people wear nowadays , so what is the problem if Indians ( who up to now still wear their national dress ) wear their tunic and pants ?

I don't have a problem with that. I even admire those countries that really try to keep their traditions by wearing their traditional clothes even if most countries just wear normal clothes now ( I don't really understand how did everyone start wearing the same thing and turn their backs on their traditional clothes ) .

yeah, me too. I admire them for keeping their traditional clothes the Punjabis too.
Pakistani and Indian Punjabi's kept their traditionoal clothing. We have so many Indian Punjabi's in the Philippines. I've seen some of their parade
the Sikh Punjabi Indians.

^Filipino and Pakistani wedding, first time I saw a female Pakistani
married to a guy who doesn't belong to their group, well mostly
women don't marry guys outside their group. I guess they're allowed
as long as they have both same religion. Because some of them they're still following
dowry tradition right?

But on the other hand, I think it looks very affected for American or European travelers to wear local dress while traveling in the country. So, on the one hand you expect Indian women to wear shorts and tank tops in American malls, but it seems very fakey for American girls to wear a sari while hanging around the youth hostel in India.

Would western women go topless in African areas where that is the custom? Showingtheir arms or ankles is just as unacceptable to a woman from Pakistan.
