US envoy to India requires your help over her saree selection for Independence Day
'Saree' is one of the most popular and traditional garments preferred by Indian women which has a long history embedded in Indian culture. The world over, saree is probably the most recognisable costume traditionally associated with Indian women. This in itself is enough to tell that it's not just a piece of cloth for us Indians.

However, it now seems that saree fever is starting to grip even visitors to India. Recently, the US Ambassador to India, MaryKay Loss Carlson sought Twitter's help in deciding which saree she should pick to wear on the occasion of India's 70th Independence Day.

Using the hashtag #SareeSearch, Ms Carlson posted her photos on the microblogging site Twitter wearing four different Indian saress - 'Jamdani', 'Dupion', 'Kanjeevaram' and 'Tussar' asking from Twitterati – what looks best on her.

"My #SareeSearch continues. Help me pick one to wear for #IndependenceDay by voting for your favorite. #WeWearCulture," she wrote on the social media site seeking suggestions from Twitter users over her saree selection.

Earlier on the same day, Ms Carlson also shared a video of herself, in which she can be seen showing the above mentioned four different sarees by asking which one she should choose to wear on August 15.

In this regard, she sought responses and suggestions from Twitterati appealing them to participate in an online poll in helping her over the saree selection.

"It was hard to narrow down my #SareeSearch to only four. Watch the video to see my choices. #WeWearCulture @minmsme @ChairmanKvic," she tweeted along with the video.

After this, Ms Carlson received a lot of responses from social media users with people appreciating the US envoy over her gesture towards India. She also got a warm welcome from Twitterati over her move to show her respect towards Indian culture.

The US envoy to India's love for Khadi sarees had also come in the news earlier when she had shared a video of herself at Khadi India shopping for a saree. "Love Indian sarees," she had captioned the video.
