After a long pause I thought of discussing about a question that had struck my mind several days ago. In Sri Lanka a Sari is accepted as a glamorous piece of clothing worn in functions, offices and worn by ladies of all ethnic communities including certain foreigners.
However I wonder if the Sarong was able receive the same reception as that of the Sari, apart from the ‘Ariya Sinhala’ National Dress (Worn by Peons and Politicians alike) or similar dresses worn by the Tamil community of Sri Lanka for cultural occasion, I doubt if this dress did get the same attention worldwide as the sari.
If Sari can come into equal terms with a gown, I do believe that a sarong could surpass the trousers in several aspects where the dress and where its comfortability is concerned.
As a person who wears sarong and admires them, I strongly believe that the sarong should have received a better reception and popularity among the people. Now it will be up to us Men and Gentlemen alike to speak on behalf of our sarongs.
