Modi likens handloom products to mother’s love

Chennai, Aug 7 (IANS) Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday likened the production of handloom products to the way food is served by mothers “with love and affection”.

Modi was speaking at the Madras University Centenary Auditorium where he launched the National Handloom Day and the India Handloom brand.

The prime minister said 80 percent of the space in a weaver’s house was occupied by the handloom unit, and the family used only the remaining area to live.

It took at least five months to weave a sari, he said. The family watches the sari being weaved like the female child of that household.

The finished sari is taken to the market like the way a girl is married off to a suitable boy, he pointed out.

And so a weaver’s family can identify the sari it made even after several years, Modi added.
