Why I’m wearing Indian clothes, you should try it too sadguru column opinion ntc


The textile industry is one of the three most polluting industries in the world. This has many aspects, but the microplastics that emanate from the polyfibers are of concern to us at this time. Polyfiber accounts for 90 percent of the world’s fiber production. If you see a plastic bag on the street, do you know you have to pick it up? But the polyfiber has spread to such a subtle level that it has permeated everything. It’s in the soil, the water, and your food.

Some US studies show that 90 percent of people also have a certain amount of plastic in their blood. Some poignant images show that whales have stomachs full of plastic, turtles are trapped in plastic bags. But we are all turtles trapped in polyfiber. Studies on polyfibers and synthetic fabrics reveal several health hazards, including cancer, and this is definitely affecting the health of our children. Some studies suggest that autism in children is related to synthetic clothing. It paralyzes you, human intelligence declines. It is estimated that around the world, on average, we have five times more clothes than our grandparents. They say that by 2525 it will double and we will have ten times more clothes than our grandparents. Therefore, it is very important to model consciously.

First of all, we must return to natural fibers such as cotton, silk, linen, jute and jute. Regardless of the type of natural fiber that is available in different parts of the world, it is important that you reuse it. At least a day or two a week, you should wear organic, hand-knit clothing. It will make a big difference in your physical and mental health. You don’t need to believe anyone’s words. Try it for yourself and see how you feel. Wear raw silk or cotton clothes, also your underwear, for a week and see how your body feels. Then wear something tight and synthetic and check. You will notice a huge difference in the comfort and convenience level of the way your body works.

blessing for farmers

In terms of better income for farmers, betting on natural fibers will also be good for our economic situation. We can completely stop the suicides of farmers and the misery of farmers, if a part of agriculture is used to grow natural fibers. The problem with food crops is that the food is perishable, so the farmer has to sell it immediately. But if 30 percent of his farmland is replaced with natural fiber trees, it will be a great help to him. This is what our country was doing at one point.

rebirth of the fabric industry

India used to be the largest clothing exporter to the rest of the world. About three hundred years ago, sixty percent of world exports were Indian clothing. During the British era, it was systematically abolished. In fifty years, three to four million people died just because the handloom industry was destroyed to such an extent that a governor-general once said: “The fields of India have been turned white by weavers’ bones. manuals. But we still have the skills. If natural fibers make a comeback, not necessarily handloom weaving, but machine weaving as well, then there is no other country on earth that has such skill. We have more than 120 different fabrics in this country. If we don’t revive them, almost half will die in the next ten to fifteen years, because only older couples are doing it and their children are software engineers.

It’s time we revived the natural fibers and weaving industry. Although India was once famous for its clothing, in the last century, the world has not really seen Indian clothing. In India and globally, we are creating various initiatives to bring it back to people’s consciousness. There is a lot of talk about unemployment in India. But if we can bring back the handloom, the people who do it will not be enough, because there will be a tremendous demand. If we do the right thing, India will be ready to dress the world once again, in a sensible and natural way.

Personally, I dress in such a way that I am representative of all these wonderful weavers. And I ask everyone, at least the rich in India, that at least twenty percent of their wardrobe be made by hand, woven by people, not by machines. At least once a week, wear something that is Indian. It is for your health, personal well-being and the well-being of the environment. At the same time, you will also be supporting future generations in weaving crafts.
