Nivedita Barthakur "If a shalwar or a saree is allowed,Jainsem should also be allowed."
A governess from Meghalaya was allegedly shunted out  of Delhi Golf Club for "looking like a maid". Tailin  Lyngdoh, who was wearing a Jainsem, a dress worn by the indigenous Khasi women in her state, was told by    club officials that she needed to vacate the place as maids are not allowed. The staff commented that she looked like a maid, she looked like a Nepali.
