The most noticeable thing about the outfit was the emphasis on India’s pluralistic and linguistic diversity through the use of golden metallic buttons engraved with ‘Bharat’ in different languages, sending across the message of ‘Ek Bharat, Shreshtha Bharat’. “The outfit is a tribute to the handloom and khadi weavers of India, in keeping with the ‘vocal for local’ call by our honourable Prime Minister,” said Thakur.
