Can one really flex to a song like Genda Phool which is all heart tho? This post is primarily to share with you why I put out #sareeflow as a hashtag. It had been on my mind for months, and the intention was not to create the most sensual saree videos, but to feel so comfortable and happy wearing it without the pressure of being a delicate lady. That aside, I wanted to also spotlight Indian hoopers because we're so few in number but growing so fast. Theres so much diversity in our cultures and even in our sarees that I hoped this trend would add a very unique twist to a global art form. Or visa versa- that you'd want to get yourself a hoop because you secretly want to dress up to goof around. Either case, I think it's fantastic that you're doing it anyway and sharing it ❤️ . . .

Smita Prakash, ANI Editor shared the video with the caption, "Saree goal, fitness goal, feel good, smile. All in one video. Watch Eshna Kutty. @ndcnn's daughter." Another comment reads, "Eshna Kutty is the most incredible, encouraging hooper. And holds classes online that are almost always full. She also sings beautifully. Her instagram handle is a treat!"
