Many women have been tagged by friends and family to participate in the saree challenge in which one is asked to upload one of the best saree clad images and have to tag a friend and do the same. While all women look beautiful in traditional attire, the underlying meaning of the challenge is to look beautiful and add good gesture life and add beauty to it.
