Look at the richness of dress in Tamil Nadu
The men are simply clad in a white dhoti and white shirt, for the women have taken all the rich colors and textures of the silk sarees and the cotton hand looms, the likes of which you shall not see elsewhere. Kanjeevaram, Dharmavaram, Arni, Kod ambakkam, Uriyur, Salem, Coimbatore, Kalakshetra-these are Synonymns of sarees.
Look at the ladies, shy, graceful intelligent.
a) See the way they use flowers and not artificial perfumes to enrich the air; jasmine, marukozhundu, dhavaram, Kanakambaram, a mixture of flowers called kadambam in their long plaits.
b) See the way they move and you would know why sophisticated sensuous dance forms like the baratanatyam and simple folk dance like Karagam and Pokkal Kudirai flourishing here. Hear them speak and you will marvel at the music of the spoken Tamil, infinitely varying in its cadence and vocabulary from Chennai to Cingleput to Tanjore to Tiruneveli to Maduri to Ramnad to Salem to Kanyakumari.
