Ugly Duckling

The Ugly Duckling story in an Indian traditional dress.

Meena a little girl aged 5 from a Hindu Middle-class family had always fancied herself wearing a beautiful silk Banarasi silk saree/salwar kameez like her mother/elder sister would when going off to work or wearing them on special occasions. Being a small girl, she was given to wear dresses/frocks with pretty frills which never really appealed to her much only because she fancied herself in an Indian traditional dress so wearing a ghagra choli/saree on special occasions was something she always looked forward to as it allowed her to bring out her true inner self thus satisfying her dreams to some extent. While at school she admired her teacher wearing varieties of beautiful sarees/salwar kameez like her mother/elder sister and her fantasy grew even more wild and impatient like the story we all know of the little ugly duckling who grew up to become a beautiful swan. Her college days made her browse through some of the fashion catalogs advertised in Vogue magazines since she felt that the days grew near and that she would have the green signal to dress the way she wanted to and not what was given to her. On her first job as a receptionist a in hotel line she enjoyed wearing the traditional Indian saree that she so longed for on a daily basis but unfortunately it did not last long since it was the standard dress code routine by the company that all of her colleagues worn which never made her stand out amongst the crowd.
