To the Indian woman, the sari is a symbol of her ethnicity, tradition and culture. It is the preferred attire during any major function, be it a wedding, a diplomatic event or even a social do. However, many Indian girls and women would rather don a casual top and jeans, a dress or a skirt for that matter.
But there are some things that you cannot do with a sari. You cannot run or play games or do any stunts. But there are exceptions. In a male-dominated world, women have shown that they are capable of doing things which were considered impossible — till now.
That means doing front flips, backflips and cartwheels with the sari! According to a report in a section of the media, gymnast and fitness influencer Parul Arora, who is based in Haryana, does not let her sari come in the way of her stunts.

She sometimes ties up with another gymnast Michael Singh for stunt videos. Arora, a national gold medal-winning gymnast, has made doing backflips pretty easy-peasy while wearing the six-yard garment tucked around her.
In September, hoop dancer Eshna Kutty's dance to Genda Phool while wearing a saree had created waves on social media.
