27 th April 2005


Today I met Sushanti and Suparna at the railway station as I was heading back home. Both of them were in a good mood. We complained about the heat together. They asked me about my vacation plans. Then, Sushanti looks at me and says, “Today you look so nice.” She touches my clothes. I am dressed in a salwaar kameez unlike my usual casual trousers and sleeveless tops. Perhaps she is making a remark on my ‘civil looks’. The salwaar kameez makes me one among them, not the rough-and-tough westernized workingwoman.

I am still intrigued by the variety of marking practices which exist in the city – marking which has implications of identification, acceptability, admission to certain groups, etc.

Interesting huh!?!?!?
