Definition

Long pleated skirt worn by adolescent girls in the south Indian states.
Worn with a blouse alone or with a half blouse and a davani (shawl) to cover the upper body. Looks zoober when worn with other accessories like colourful glass bangles and jasmine flowers.
The Pavada(i) is fast disappearing from the landscape and is mostly sported in traditional functions or festivals and in movies by mallipoo- type girls of the hinterlands who run around in the green fields and get wet in waterfalls before they get married off.

Usage

"Yeng geyls of today dond like to wear the bootiful Pavada-blouse. Sadly, they only like salwar-kurta and jeans-pants"

Here you can watch frisky pavadai-blouse girl and get nostalgic:
