  1. great tips. i had an emergency at the mall, last week. My chudidar pant- the nada just broke while I was walking and I could feel it slowly coming down till my knee. I held it over my dress and ran to the nearest loo. I was not sure how to handle the emergency as i had no safety pins with me, it was so frustrating. I had only bobby pins!!! so i bobby pinned, after folding the chudidar at the waist in certain places and walked directly to get an auto home. it held all that while. THANK GOD!!!!
