The classic Kumbha temple border gets a new form and design in a Ganga Jamuna colour palette. Kumbha means Kalash, a pitcher. The reference is to the pot which emerged after the gods and demons churned the milky ocean filled with the nectar of immortality. An overflowing pot of knowledge, happiness and bliss. The other reference to Kumbha is the sign of the Aquarius wherein metaphorically, the 'Kumbha' border of a Sari signifies the continuity of life from celestial forces to the elements of our planet; of water from the verdant hills to the oceans; of wisdom from one civilisation to another.
