S is for Saris
"No other street in America provides the Mumbai-style window-shopping you can enjoy in Queens on 74th Street in Jackson Heights. India Sari Palace will fit you out like a Maharani and then you can dine like one (or buy the gold jewelery like one) up and down the nearby blocks. Our dress-up drawer at home is stuffed with the latest silk styles and the classics -- depending on whether the grandparents were with us that Sunday." -Amol Sarva
Sarva posted the book as a project on Kickstarter.com in March and reached his initial goal of $8,000 in just seven days. In April, Sarva set a new goal of $35,000, which will help get the book into every Queens art institution, museum, school, and library—thus getting the book into the hands of more kids. The campaign is running through May 16. Sarva says he’d like the book to be a collaborative effort, so in addition to monetary donations he’s asking for suggestions from one and all on what should be included in the book.
