Grandma's Batik Saree- First step towards SuccessSomeone in the conference asked So Miss Vidya What makes these Saree's so loved? What is your secret will you share it with us?
Today a businesswoman, an entrepreneur, youngest woman to open so many shopping malls and chains of Saree-specific brands and big headlines for many newspapers Vidya, was suddenly feeling nostalgic and having flashbacks of how it all started and why she was here.
She was barely 3 years old when she saw her grandmother folding a saree fascinated by its colour and design.
Something so unique for her eyes, so many colours to be lost in it when it was simply a saree for others.
For Vidya, it was a key to some sort of mystery. She tried to hold it, but her grandmother snatched it, and told her you will have it when the time will be right, now is not the time.
Her next memory of that saree was when she was 10 years old, she asked her grandmother to lend it to her, but the old lady refused, calling it a valuable gift from her husband not to be ruined.
She again tried when she was 15 years old and grandmother again refused.
But the old lady told her if you want to have it, you have to earn it, This is the first Batik Saree that your late great grandfather made before starting our family business of Batik sarees, and later gifted it to me.
So first, read and understand everything about this family treasure and then come to me and I might give it to you before I die if I find you worthy.
But Vidya was running out of patience it was an obsession for her to hold that saree, wear it and look at it from close. But it was locked in a locker mocking her inquisitiveness.
She used to have so many scenarios in her brain about how to get it out from that locker.
