Gandhi to see and finalise one of them. Nylon was quite popular those days.
Kasbekar, a joint secretary in the banking department then who also

Kasbekar's pocket and her gaze stayed transfixed there. Kasbekar became
uneasy along with others, suspecting that something had displeased the
prime minister. Surprisingly, she ordered Kasbekar to take out a colourful
envelope that he had in his shirt pocket. Kasbekar gave the envelope to her
without knowing why. Indira Gandhi's face lit up and she said, ‗This is the

pocket which was orange in colour with a dash of red and saffron. This
colour combination that is used in wedding cards in Maharashtra and other
