'Because I like a gentle breeze around my legs': We asked why Indians are still madly fond of the 'lungi', Twitter did not disappoint with hilarious replies

Do you still wear a lungi or a munda at home? Or have the baggy Bermudas cut into the lungi market?

Indians made Kevin Spacy wear it. Shah Rukh Khan wore it like a boss. Most Indians who self-admittedly like a bit of cool breeze around their legs still wear it at home. I was worried the lungi - a traditional Indian cloth generally worn by men around their waist - might be slowly capitulating to affordable, comfortable and trendy shorts.In a market flooded with baggy Bermudas, how does the lungi score? I asked Twitter users, specially the 20 and 30 somethings, if they still wore a lungi? Surprise, surprise. Most people said they do. One in fact went a step further and said he was "wearing one right now". TMI!

Here are the funniest responses to the hash tag #LungiVsShorts that I thought needed a special mention.
