The political aesthetic of Chandigarh candidates

For our politicians, days of crumpled kurta, ruffled hair, hawai chappals are long over. With an increasing number of voters following their netas on social media and even getting to meet them personally at coffee-meets and jan sabhas, looking suave in politics has become just as important. Swipe across photos on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook and you will see the candidates looking dapper in crisp kurtas and fine handloom ensembles.

There’s no denying the charm of a handloom sari or mulmul kurta paired with a vegetable-dyed Ajrakh dupatta or a freshly starched Chanderi one. No one understands that better than Chandigarh MP Kirron Kher. The #100sareepact and ‘Nari in a Sari’ groups may be trending only now but for Kirron Kher, the love affair with the six yards started many years ago. She has an enviable collection that includes everything from Kanjeevarams, Patolas, Uppadas to Maheshwaris and more. It’s taken her years to curate her collection with much help from her go-to designer, Gaurang Shah. It’s no surprise that when she had to file her nomination earlier this week, Kher pulled out a chequered Sambalpuri cotton sari in black and white.
