Indian-American Undergrad Students at Pitt in their Stunning Saris

The picture below is the cover page for the January 2017 issue of The Pittsburgh Patrika.  This is NOT a PhotoShop job of superimposing pictures of Indian models in saris on an American backdrop.


These young women are the University of Pittsburgh’s US-born undergrad students of Indian origin belonging to Nrthyamala, an organization dedicated to Indian classical dance.  Sareena Fayaz, an undergraduate student at the university, took this picture in front of Mellon Institute in Oakland.

One wonders if a bunch of today’s every-day Indian college students in New Delhi, Mumbai, or Bangalore would feel comfortable posing for this kind of pictures wearing saris.   —  By Kollengode S Venkataraman   ♣
