Whilst I slog away on Dork 2--final manuscript due on the 13th--why not enjoy the latest Cricinfo column?
It has lungis in it...
At first there was a lull in the conversation while malllusss mulled his words. On the face of it he could be asking why Malayalis wear lungis (sarongs). In which case there are entire books written on the topic. I don't want to go into details but benefits include:
1. Easily adjustable for size of wearer. You can gain or lose weight or height without overhauling you wardrobe.
2. Fold can be raised or lowered depending on height of rain water, quantity of beer, volume of music.
3. Sustainability: after many years of satisfactory use a lungi can be converted into a blanket for babies, a durable kitchen towel, a restraining device for capitalists, or a shirt for Shah Rukh Khan.
I could go on and on.
Part 2 of the France travelogue shortly. Maybe tonight.
But the book takes priority, as you will no doubt understand.
