MaryKay Carlson, the US Deputy Chief of Mission (DCM) in Delhi fell in love with sarees ever since she came to India. In a new video released by the US Embassy, Carlson talks about her love for sarees and it highlights the culture and diversity of the nation.

It all began last year when she ran an epic #SareeSearch online urging people to vote for the one she could wear on Indian Independence Day.

“Most people are pleased to see their rich culture, especially the khadi culture and its link to the Independence Day that is celebrated by all the people.
