Especially the women, I should say, since a lot of men for the most part just wear trousers and shirts, although there are still some, especially in some regions, that still wear more traditional garbs.

Do you think the sari might be under threat, or is it just very common for young women to wear, especially in rural areas? It seems western clothing is probably becoming more common for middle and upper class upwardly mobile Indians.

While a natural consequence of globalisation, I sort of think it's sort of cool how traditional dress is still worn a lot in India compared to say China. I hope in 50 years the sari will not become a costume piece, only worn on special occasions like the kimono or for 'cultural shows.'
