Why do Indian people wear native costumes in the United States? Is this part of their religion (like the Muslim head coverings that Islamic women wear), or just a cultural preference?

  • Swamis -

    Some of it is cultural -- as the beautiful saris that some women wear. Sikhs, though wear turbans primarily for religious reasons.
