Make Silk Gandhi’s Way!

Silkworms’ favourite diet? Mulberry leaves! For days, they eat, eat and EAT! Then suddenly one day sway to and fro. Showtime is here folks! The worms spew out silk to make silky cocoons for their dormant pupae days. However, on a silk farm, many a silk moth fails to see the light of day. Silk farmers ruthlessly kill the dormant pupae with heat. A massacre just to get skeins of silk.
Indians have realised what an inhuman act this is. So now, we have ahimsa silk.
Farmers wait for the moths to fly away. Then unwind the silk from the open ended eri, tassar and muga cocoons. The clever Chattisgarh farmers sprinkle crushed, sun dried, heady mahuwa seeds at the base of mulberry trees. Pooh! The silk producers crawl out from their warm cocoons! An idea to be emulated to drive away unwanted guests!

Dimdima is the Sanskrit word for ‘drumbeat’. In olden days, victory in battle was heralded by the beat of drums or any important news to be conveyed to the people used to be accompanied with drumbeats.
