Varanasi Weavers in crisis


The Varanasi Silk Sari (Banarasi Sari or Brocade) has been an emblem of Indian Culture since ancient times. These beautiful saris woven using handlooms have intricate designs and patterns made from gold and silver thread. Over the years, the demand for these coveted saris, worn both by Hindu and Muslim brides, has reduced.
To make matters worse, Chinese "fakes" made on powerlooms are now available. Exploitation by middlemen and these factors have led to a major decline in the industry. There are approximately 500,000 silk weavers in Varanasi. It is estimated that 60 % of the handlooms are closed. There is starvation and malnutrition. There have been several deaths and suicides reported. Due to lack of work, many highly skilled weavers have chagned professions.
This is an issue of poverty, child labor, human rights, unfair trade, intellectual property rights and threat to cultural heritage. One of the most important reason for this crisis is unchecked and insensitive globalization in developing countries.
This is a video report highlighting this issue. Made by PVCHR ( People's Vigilance Committee on Human Rights - a human rights organization working in Varanasi) and (AHRC) Asian Human, Rights Commission, it features the report by Paul Mason of BBC.
Through this video, we hope to spread awareness of this issue. Please let your friends know about this issue by sending this video.


..जब इटली से आए विदेशियों ने यहां लगाई दिलचस्प पंचायत!

Achievement, Anti Torture Initiative, Child Centric Model Block

 इटली से आए 32 लोगों की एक टीम ने पिंडरा ब्लाक के सराय गांव के मुसहर बस्ती में अपनी पंचायत लगाई। बेरोजगारी और अशिक्षा की वजह से इस बस्ती के लोग बंधुआ मजदूरी के चंगुल में दशकों फंसे थे।

मानवाधिकार जन निगरानी समिति के अचूक प्रयासों की वजह से आज पूरा गांव इस दलदल से बाहरचुका है। इन ग्रामीणों के संघर्ष कि दिलचस्प कहानी को सुनने और जांबाज़ी को सलाम करने इटली से यह टीम यहां पहुंची।

ग्रामीण राम दयाल ने बताया कि मानवाधिकार जननिगरानी ने 2004 में इस गांव में लोगों को एकजुट करना शुरू किया, जब यहां पर लोग बंधुआ मजदूरी करते थे। यहां इन लोगों के पास जीवन जीने के लिए कोई भी मूलभूत सुविधाए उपलब्ध नहीं थी। लोग दबंगों से बहुत डरे और सहमे रहते थे।

इसके बाद बस्ती में धीरे-धीर लोगों में जागरूकता बढ़ी और योजनाओं तक लोगों की पहुंच बढ़ी। महासचिव डॉ लेलिन ने बताया कि ये विदेशी उन दलितों मुसहर जाति के लोगों से प्रभावित हैं, जो कभी गुलाम हुआ करते थे। बंधुआ मजदूरी के गर्त में डूबे हुए थे। आज की इस बदली हुई तस्वीर को देखने ही इटली से इतने सारे लोग यहां आए हैं।

क्या कहा इटली से आई टीम ने

फादर बरनैडो सर्वेलेरा ने बताया कि ग्रामीणों में गजब का आत्मविश्वास है। इन लोगों ने जीवन की दिशा और दशा दोनों को बदला है। इटली से आए अन सभी लोगों ने इनके संघर्ष की लड़ाई से बहुत कुछ सीखा है।

हम इसे इटली के लोगों को बताएंगे कि कैसे संसाधन विहीन समुदाय ने संघर्ष से अपने जीवन को खुशहाल बनाया है। फादर बरनैडो सर्वेलेरा ने कहा कि हर ईसाई और कैथोलिक उनके अहिंसात्मक संघर्षों के साथ है।

आगे देखें इटली से आए इन लोगों ने कैसे जानी गांव वालों की दास्तां...
