If we leave our conditioning behind, every piece of clothing is unisex, and people should feel free to wear whatever makes them feel good. However, many of us are hesitant to express ourselves through clothing for fear of being ridiculed because of our choices.

Jainil Mehta, a 22-year-old choreographer, has gone viral on social media after dancing in a skirt on the streets of New York.
When he witnessed a Bollywood star dance in a lehenga, he was blown away. He dashed to his mother’s closet to get a long skirt at that point. He shut the door, fearful of being discovered stealing her skirt, and danced his heart out.
