Clothes are not just clothes. Clothes are also politics. But sometimes power dressing can become a caricature, almost an insult to voters.

Priyanka Gandhi is hardly ever seen in a sari in Delhi. For the July 2008 trust vote in Parliament, she, in fact, showed up in trendy dark trousers and a white shirt, an outfit both stunning and honest about who she is.

The stately young mother is often seen picking up her children from school in casual jeans and T-shirt. She attends charity functions in western wear, steps out for Delhi dinners in western wear, is seen at restaurants in western wear. Then why, oh why, must the gorgeous Priyanka Gandhi get into ethnic costume every time she visits Amethi?


India is changing fast; today’s voters want honesty and transparency above all. They don’t want prepared speeches about poverty alleviation from a line-up of costumed performers. They don’t want the right notes of a lip-synched song to be sung by a dancing troupe of stage actors dressed in the feathers and grass skirts of local custom. They don’t want a chorus line of painted faces, with artificial slogans and pre-learnt dance moves, choreographed and dressed to “suit the occasion.”

heh. now wall street journal is asking the same question.

Is Priyanka Vadra, daughter of Sonia Gandhi and sister of Rahul, being insincere when she wears handloom saris every time she visits Amethi, the Nehru-Gandhi dynasty’s family constituency?

on track with my prediction. Rahul is going to disappear and Robert would become the PM of India.
