When the ‘tape measure’ came in
New Delhi: The latest trend in Indian fashion, the tape measure has been around for years and is still being used as a fashion accessory.
But it has been in a growing spotlight in recent months.
On Saturday, the New York Times Magazine posted a profile of a woman in her 50s, who wore a tape measure to measure her clothes, and was surprised to find herself measuring herself for a client who was dressed as a priest in an Indian tradition.
The piece said the tape measures, which cost about $150 and are now popular in the US, have become a popular way to measure the body, the style, and the clothes.
But the article did not name the woman who wore the measure and the article does not say why it was so popular.
It was the latest in a string of stories about how the measure has become an icon of Indian fashion and a source of debate among the country’s elite.
A number of women in India have claimed to be able to measure themselves in the tape measuring tradition, but a survey last year found that only a quarter of the women who said they could had done so.
“The tape measure is a symbol of our culture,” said one Indian fashion writer.
“It’s a way of expressing our values.
We are all different, but we all measure ourselves.”
In a new essay in the journal New York, writer Yashpal Kulkarni described the tape as a way for men to measure their bodies in a way that is respectful of the customs of the Hindu gods.
He said it was a way to show respect to the bodies of women and children.
“They have a right to wear the tape.
They don’t have to wear it.
They have a choice,” he wrote.
“I think that the tape is part of our heritage.
I don’t think it is a bad thing to be measured.”
