    Question Panchakacham

    Dear fellow members,

    This is a real request. After many years, I now need to wear a "veshti" the way that's needed for a function, ie in panchakacham style, and try as I might....

    Could someone kindly provide instructions, would be ever so grateful.

    Thanks & regards.

    let me try.
    first you have to take 8 muzam veshti and spread it fully
    hold the veshti behind your back and leave more than half to your left. then encircle your tummy and tuck the veshti at the waist leaving the two ends free like wings.
    now take the right wing and fold the edge near the waist like visiri and continue to fold the broad end similarly and tuck the madippu in the nabi area.
    repeat same for the left wing and tuck the visiri at the back.
    tada you have panja kacham!!
    hope i am right!

    r right l lft rb is right bottom etc,
    L L1 R1 R

    U
    LB RB
    U= you standing in the middle of veshti
    now hold with your hands LI An R1 as if u have wings
    bring L1 to right of navel and tuck . now take R1 an tuck over the veshti to the left of navel. now two ends are hanging from your stomach. now fold from R1 to R an R to RB by keeping 4-5 inch folds.then tuck the resultant in the nabi area.
    repeat for L1 to L an L LB an take it between your legs and tuck in the back Voila u r ready (i hope)

    Dear Mr Eswaran,

    Quite remiss of me, this belated reply. Many thanks indeed and I'll give this a shot. It looks as if the first step is a knot near the waist/navel and from then on it escalates rapidly.There is also a word here which is alien to me but...

    Kind rgds,
    V-gotram

    Smile panchakacham

    my mom used to say if you want to appear colorful you can use a six muzham saree as a panchakacham , as long as it is new . is this true? if allowed, then what is the best technique to get the best out of it ?
