By the People: Sumitra Selvaraj

By The People is an interactive series where we feature inspiring individuals from everyday life, who are empowered and creative in their own little space. And in this edition we are delighted to introduce Sumitra Selvaraj, the founder of Sarees and Stories. She is the executive producer of VBuzz, an English language talk show in Kuala Lumpur. Sumitra documents her life in a saree — one day she is off to interview Bollywood stars, another day she is at a writing workshop, or headed to an impromptu beachside vacation. A bit of each day is dedicated to celebrating weaves, colours, patterns, textures and styles. But look a little closer and you will realise that it is Sumitra – the woman and her words, that make everyday an occasion. It is her stories that elevate her everyday saree-wearing experience for readers from the world over.
