Right to bare arms

Why is wearing sleeveless such a big deal in South India? The vamp always wears sleeveless. The other woman always wears sleeveless. The slut always wears sleeveless. And pointy bras, but that’s another story altogether. The heroine is always clad in blouses with sleeves, except when running around trees.

I got told off by mom for getting sleeveless blouses stitched for my sarees and worse, wanting to wear them to my cousin’s wedding reception.

    ooh! I know! But, its better in cities I feel – I wear sleeveless most times and it seems ok…
    but, once you hit the smaller towns – sleeveless is frowned upon! Espcially by nosy relatives!
