Lungi is IN

Among the 50 ways to make the difference in Global Warming (published by India today for July edition), the use of Lungi to save air conditioning sounds quite interesting.


In a bid to save on air conditioning, Japanese executives no longer wear ties and suits to formal meetings. With India’s climate being described as hot, hotter and hottest, it’s probably time to ban Western wear for men. Instead, the traditional lungi that Harvard-educated Finance Minister P. Chidambaram adorns could be an ideal wear for south India. North Indian men can choose from their alternatives.

” I like to wear Lungi…but its quite irritating ” πŸ˜† Β … This is what my brother says about Lungi . I wonder how it would be if Indian execuitves Β do the same as Japanese πŸ˜›

  4. LOL …
    the thing mr chidambaram wears is dhoti .. πŸ˜€ not lungi ..
    there is difference between both πŸ˜€


  5. yep as arvind said chidambaram wearing dhoti. I’m not sure that which one you are refferring to πŸ™‚ Whether japanese wear dhoti or lungi?

    Anyway in chennai corporate life if we wear lungi, it will be helpful particularly in this season, raining at any time. Easy to walk in flooded roads πŸ˜›
    but basically i don’t like lungi to wear πŸ™‚

  20. Lungi would be a comfortable thing to wear except that I wouldnt be wearing one when I wake up, If I went to sleep wearing it.
    I prefer shorts.


  21. @Xylene

    They should make the corporate life pretty colorful though :).

  26. Yeah.. quite a thoughtful attempt… but it is very risky to wear a lungi in windy weather πŸ˜€ … though in our Bangladesh it is the national (male) dress, I feel a bit uncomfortable. I can’t trust a dress which has actually no belt, can I? πŸ˜€

  29. LMAO…
    this is gonna be a great hit for sure among the freshers πŸ˜‰
    i doubt if its accepted by the uncles πŸ˜›

    i never ever wore it to be honest πŸ™‚


  30. Hehe…good one!

    Would be fun to see ppl sitting in conf rooms, serious expression on face and note pads in hand…while the lungi gently sways under the fan πŸ˜€ (or doesn’t, if it’s an ac room πŸ˜‰ ) !


  31. heh heh heh…….

    I think Chidambaram wears lungi…..dhoti is the one that has a “divider” (is there any term for it?)…..correct me if I’m wrong


  32. Hey, that was a gud laugh… Why don’t you write more often?
