Theresa May In Temple.

Visiting Prime Minister of Britain, Theresa May visited Bengaluru’s famous

Someshwar temple yesterday.

What was most appealing to me was her wearing a sari to undertake the visit.

Prime Minister Theresa May visits the Sri Someshwara Hindu temple in Bangalore on the final day of a three-day trade mission designed to pave the way for close commercial links with the south Asian giant after Brexit.

  1. I love a sari and I probably like salwar kameez even better but I would feel like a pretender if I was to wear either of them. (I feel the same way about the cheongsam)

    For me, it would be a sign of respect to not wear the traditional dress of another culture. Interesting that your perception is so different

    1. Hold on to your principles, Kylie. Not least when visiting Hawaii. Not that you wouldn’t be able to carry it off (as little as there is).

    1. India and UK have very strong and long lasting ties despite the former having been once a colony, or perhaps because of that. This visit is to strengthen it further if Brexit takes place, as it seems very likely. I also think that she is perhaps a closet Hindu and going into a temple wearing Western attire would have been unthinkable!

  2. definitely Theresa is making the right moves – culturally – and probably wearing it will, including walking about etc… I know that a sari has many folds, many metres of fabric, something we “other wearers” don’t think about too much on a daily basis…

    1. Apart from that, I suspect that her wanting to go to the temple itself must have been on the advice of a Hindu friend back home and it would have been unthinkable to go to that temple in Western attire.
