Akṣarā organized this event in celebration of Tamil New Year (April 13th) and Tamil Heritage. Madisar is a traditional way of wearing the saree in South India. Ms. Swarnalatha Iyer gave us a deeper understanding of the historical, cultural, traditional, spiritual and holistic aspects of wearing saree in the Madisar way. The online talk was followed by an experiential event in Times Square, NYC where people came wearing the Madisar.
