As a Tamilian, I am proud to participate in the red carpet reception of the world famous Cannes Film Festival today wearing the Veshti shirt, a traditional symbol of Tamil, Murugan tweeted. The union minister s attire showcased a combination of symbolism and global representation. On the left side of his shirt was the national flag, embodying the spirit and identity of India. Complementing the national flag, on the right side of his shirt, was the distinguished G20 logo. The embroidery on the shirt has been done by my local tailor. It makes me immensely proud to wear the tricolour on my chest, ANI quoted the minister as saying. Since we are doing so many events and showcasing our heritage at the G20 year long plan, it is only fit that we tell the world about it, he added.
