<!--QuoteBegin-Bodhi+Jun 26 2008, 01:39 AM-->QUOTE(Bodhi @ Jun 26 2008, 01:39 AM)<!--QuoteEBegin-->an interesting perspective by a sari-wearing professional:
<!--QuoteBegin--><div class='quotetop'>QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->
If my colleague at work asks me wistfully "tell me <b>Polly, why DO you
wear a sari?</b>" I say (gives the most meaningless answers).
[...]
But given how many times I've answered the question, <span style='color:blue'>I'd really be
rather relieved if I could just say I wear a sari because it's my
religion! Because its complicated. Related to the sari, there is no
coherent `why' question that I can make sense of, or can give a response to. As a general question it makes no sense- why do you wear
a sari?</span><!--QuoteEnd--><!--QuoteEEnd-->[right][snapback]83343[/snapback][/right]<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->Bodhi, why does Polly's opinion matter? It appears from her dialogue and her reference to her own name that she's a christian. But most of the following applies just as well to pseculars (who are invariably christo-conditioned).

Polly's is a predictable response. Such persons have no real reason to wear a sari: wearing of a sari is incoherent to Indian christians because it is a <i>Hindu</i> tradition. When Hindu tradition is psecularised and appropriated as christianism has done, you get such desperations like the 'complicated', 'can't make sense', 'no coherent reason why' and more seen above. Indian christians always come off looking like insipid ignorants when they try to reason to themselves - and then try to excuse themselves to others - as to why they have stolen Hindu traditional practises, festivals, skills, arts, sciences and literature (even though they took great pride to avoid these things until now, precisely because these are very heatheny Hindoo things). But then, thieves don't know the true worth or reasoning behind the valuables they've merely stolen. That's why their answer to such questions doesn't even matter.
Hindu women do very much wear the sari for Hindu (that is, 'religious') purposes - it's the real reason why Hindu civilisation developed it in the first place. But christians wouldn't know that, because one would need to be Hindu/Dharmic to learn and know all the basics of Hindu/Dharmic civilisation. Hindus don't need to come up with invalid, trite and inconsequential reasons that are so obviously only the refuge of christians who tell themselves why it is okay to do heatheny things.
Consider a thief stealing someone else's heirloom: to the criminal, the item will never possess nor represent the real value that it has for the true owner, since the criminal merely stole it out of greed/jealousy/spite/ineptitude. It will never be theirs in reality, even as they spend their lives trying to convince themselves as to why it belongs in their possession. But even this example is inadequate, as Hindu practises are not mere heirlooms: they are essential parts of Hindus' <i>religious</i> civilisation. Christianism has no civilisation and is incapable of creating anything that is its own. Consequently, as christians in India have no real culture, they attempt to steal and pass of others' as their own. Christianism has always been parasitism - feeding on the Roman, Greek and European hosts, and then bent on repeating the same desolation in the rest of the world.
