1.       The traditional ' laal par sada' sari  – Since age’s women from Bengal have strongly clung onto old traditions. Even today when there is an auspicious occasion all the women of the house clad themselves in the oh so gorgeous 'white and red' sari considered to be a good omen. That’s what Swara wore to celebrate ‘Nabo Barsho’ , The Bengali new year

2.       Kohled 'taana chokh' We all know and admire those beautiful almond shaped eyes also known as 'Taana cokh' in Bengali! But what makes them striking and sensuous is the thick kohl put perfectly defining the shape.
