Clear rating

A young girl wonders why she can't wear a sari like her mother. Today is her birthday and she wants to look like a grown-up, even though she's only 7. She is mesmerized by her mother's saris as they come out of the suitcase they're kept in. All the colors! And each one marks a special occasion.

Finally, her mother relents and let's her choose a beautiful blue and gold sari to wear for her birthday. She has to stand very still so her mother can wrap and wrap and fold the many yards of fabric in a sari. The two final touches are a little girls dream: six gold bangles that match the dress perfectly and a gold tear shaped bindi.
