We had lost him on this date in 2015. It was the tithi of Suna Besha of the Ratha Jatra. 

Suna Besha is an auspicious day when the deities are dressed in golden attire.

Letter For National Handloom Awards 2023 Notification

Thanks to the Ministry of Textiles, Govt of India, and PM Modi ji's initiative, the first National Handloom Day was inaugurated on 7th August 2015 in Chennai.

National Handloom Day celebration is an opportunity to honour our handloom-weaving community and to share and showcase the contribution of this sector in the socio-economic development of our nation.

On National Handloom Day, celebrated on 7th August each year, the National Handloom Awards are given to honour weavers.

It is a goal for many weavers.

There is an English saying- "Where there's a will, there's a way".

But, the will is not created automatically. There has to be a goal and then there can be the motivation and action to reach it.

All this cannot and does not happen overnight.

Agree that not all weavers work for awards. They create exquisite pieces and are either unbothered or unaware to send nomination.

Dance With The Skeletons

They appear out of the blue

And we have not any clue.

They torment & disturb,

Their activities we cannot curb.

What we decide to do-

Will determine & construe.

Come one, date the demons!

Dance with the skeletons!
