Wearing lungi is hardly in vogue.When we are on the job whether we are in the office or the field we put on formal attire but once we are back to our personal lives, some of us like to wear informal dress/clothes but most of us still wear formal dress. Now there may be dispute what the difference is between formal and informal dress, and also every informal dress is not acceptable in every society. Like lungi which is normally is in vogue in south India is not common in northern parts of the country. I think lungi plays the role of a formal and informal dress in south India because I have seen H.D.Devgora, P. Chidambaram, M.Karuna Nidhi etc wearing lungi while addressing people. I have seen a few leaders like Mulayam Singh Yadav and Chandrashekhar who would wear lungi too. Some of my teachers would also wear lungi in schools. People in West Bengal and Bihar normally wear lungi too however, the style of wearing may differ. Some villagers or old people still wear lungi. Once it was commonly put on by people in my town but now it is dying.
I like to wear it while being at home because it is comfortable for my body.
