Dupatta, odhni, chunri or Chunari, have always been a significant part of an Indian woman’s attire. If we were to trace its evidence, the history of this delicate piece of cloth dates back to the Indus Valley Civilization where the sculpture of the Priest-King was carved with a chadhar donned on his left shoulder. Not only has this but, the Sanskrit literature also mentions a lot of analogous vocabulary that makes dupatta a treasured and archaic piece of cloth.
Worn as a matter of pride, modesty and fashion statement by some over the head while some around the shoulders, Dupatta is indeed an indispensable part of a woman’s wardrobe.
