Modi to Present 100 Banarasi Sarees to Michelle Obama

New Delhi (TIP): Prime Minister Narendra Modi plans to present 100 Banarasi silks sarees to Michelle Obama when she and President Obama visit India this weekend. 

 

“Banarasi silk sarees with old, unique designs and finest quality Banarasi dress material for the U.S. first lady from PM’s constituency are on its way to New Delhi,” a senior BJP leader of Varanasi, now closely associated with the PM, said. 

 

Michelle Obama’s “love for Indian silk is no secret,” and she has “been spotted wearing Jacquard silk dresses designed by international bigwigs Tracy Resse, Naeem Khan and Alexander McQueen.”

 

Jacquard silk is a specialty of weavers of Banaras, the constituency Modi represents in parliament.
