The Belgrave Baheno (32 photos)
by Kajal Nisha Patel Gold Star Critiquer/Gold Star Workshop Editor/Gold Note Writer [C:  W: 63 N: 762] (4542)

The characteristics of a typical Belgrave Bahen (the "o "is plural), is a saree, a cardigan and hair tied back (usually in a bun). Although the title of my project is "the Belgrave Baheno", I would refer to them as masis (aunty, or mum's sister...a term of respect which is automatically given to elder women).

Belgrave is an area in Leicester, where the majority of Leicester's Indian population live.
