<!--QuoteBegin-sumanr+Apr 11 2005, 05:52 AM-->QUOTE(sumanr @ Apr 11 2005, 05:52 AM)<!--QuoteEBegin--> Have you people heard of 9 yard sarees ? <!--QuoteEnd--><!--QuoteEEnd-->
It's called "Nav-wari" in Maharshtra and coastal areas of Konkan and Karnataka, "Nav" means 9.
Sari and the Indian women in different parts of India

The phrase "whole nine yards" could have had it's source in this nav-wari sari.

<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->Ron wrote: I'd just like to add to the confusion of the origin of 'whole nine yards'. In most of India the everyday sari worn by women is made of material six yards in length. However, for weddings and special occasions, saris of nine yards are used. Hence, for these special occasions, one goes "'the whole nine yards." This could just be another example of the myriad influences the British inherited by ontrolling India for two centuries.
