Marghdeen: I got this idea from Allama Iqbal a renowned poet and philosopher, who spent his life thinking of a place which will be free from poverty, corrupt government, wicked landlords, thieves and beggars.

Farmers would take care of their land and will not share the produce with landlords, they’ll be able to enjoy the fruits of their labor without worrying about wicked landlords.

The residents will be able to own their home.

The school will be built to teach important subjects that will be beneficial to keep up with worldly affairs. No one will be left out.

The hospital would be built for the sick and also proper lessons will be given on how to live a healthy life.

A playground will be an important place to run around and play games.

A supermarket would have meat,fish,poultry and vegetables and grains and everything from tea coffee etc.  for the consumers.

Thieves and beggars will not be seen here,because the citizens will be self sufficient.

DP Daily Prompt: New Sensation

pad2014-s.png (308×60)

I am completely overwhelmed by all the choices in front of me. I have seen all of them, but I never tried any of them. It is not because I am some extraordinary person and wouldn’t care about what was fashionable.

I grew up  away from all types of fashions that existed around the world. We had two kinds of dresses. One was called Shalwar Kamiz; the other one was Sari.

Our population were not behind as far as the word fashion goes. So this is how they changed the same dresses in  different ways. Let me write about Shalwar Kamiz;  Shalwar I would say resembles slightly like trousers or pants. This is how the style changes in a shalwar, they (tailors) widen or make the bottom narrow;   Kamiz which is almost like a shirt; is sometimes reaching your ankle and then it goes slightly below the knee or even above the knee. They used to leave the sleeves of the shirt by keeping it down to the wrist; now it is sleeveless or short sleeve.

The next is Sari: they tried to wear the sari below the knee,it didn’t pan out well because it looked ridiculous and spoiled the look of this graceful dress. So they’ve left  alone the length. Instead they fiddle with the blouse. The blouse nowadays are so short it makes no sense to wear them. The blouse sleeves are short ,long,or three quarters. The neck line is too wide which I think does not look that great. This is all about fashion .Next is how do I deal with it.

When I went to Dhaka , I took some fabric with me to get some blouses made. I had a terrible experience,I showed what I wanted, the tailor who was interested in how much material he could steal made the blouses short and ugly. I thought our tailors stitched beautiful blouses, not anymore they’re too busy stealing as much as they can.

This is all I know about fashion in Dhaka!   Pictures from wikipedia
