The month of August has already begun and the entire country is gearing up to celebrate Independence Day. The day is quite special for Indians but it appears that it is equally special for MaryKay Loss Carlson, the the US Ambassador to India.

MaryKay Loss Carlson’s excitement for August 15 is clearly evident from her Twitter account as she asks her followers to help her decide her outfit for the big day. To tweeple’s amazement and delight, the outfit is nothing else but traditional Indian saree.

Saree has by far been one of the most favorite outfits of Indian women as it is seen as a graceful traditional yet modern attire. Perhaps this is the reason, the Charge d’Affaires of the US Embassy in New Delhi has decided to don a saree for the Independence Day celebrations.

Carlson first tweeted about her love for Indian sarees, and a desire to be dressed in one, on Wednesday with #SareeSearch. She posted that she was on a search for an Indian saree to wear on Independence Day celebration. Have a look at her tweet below:

The next day, she posted a tweet that it had been difficult to narrow down her search for an Indian saree and again uploaded a video to share her choices.

Finally, some time later on the same day, she narrowed down her search to four sarees — a Jamdani, a Dupion, a Kanjeevaram and a Tussar (pronounced tosh-shor) saree. Carlson urged tweeple to help her pick one of the four by voting for their favorite one.

With all the sarees to choose from being so amazing and perfectly Indian, it is easy to understand that she must actually be facing a difficult time in finalizing one of those. But Twitterati are all there for her help!

Within a few hours of her tweet, there was a downpour of amazing responses with people offering their suggestions and thanking her for her love for Indian sarees.
