One of the most common clothing in India is a sari, and its styles for various occasions have multiplied greatly in modern times. The root of the word saree or sari is from Sanskrit, meaning “strip of cloth.” In different parts of the country, it is draped differently. For example, Gujurathis wear the a ghagra choli over the right shoulder instead of a sari over the left. There is also a half-sari, which is typically worn by younger girls. Common additions to a sari are bangles or necklaces.
