인도 여성 '사리' 그 안에 숨겨진 '노동의 눈물'

Basic Rights

현재, 인도정부의 섬유산업 담당부서는 베틀산업에 종사하는 방직공들을 위해 많은 제도(베틀마크, 건강보험제도, GI증서부여 등)를 도입했다. 그러나, 실제 엘리트 세력과 여러 세력들의 부패와 관련하여 방직공들을 위한 제도의 정보를 숨기려는 악의적인 시도 때문에 방직공들은 이 제도로 인해 작은 부분에서만 이익을 얻고 있다. 제도와 실제의 이러한 괴리로 인하여 정상적인 제도의 실행에 있어 부패만이 증가되고 있는 실정이다.


Weavers remain economically weak: Survey

Basic Rights

But, here the question is the economic vulnerability of weavers, who have been facing hardship for years due to one reason or the other. The economic survey (2009-10) claimed that human development index (HDI) of India was improving gradually but weavers and their children in Varanasi continued to die either by committing suicide or succumbing to malnutrition. A report on suicide and malnutrition among weavers in Varanasi was prepared by the Peoples Vigilance Committee on Human Rights (PVCHR) in collaboration with ActionAid, an international anti-poverty agency. It claimed about 175 weavers have fallen prey to financial hardships since 2002. "After the slump in saree industry, the weavers have been facing acute hardships," said Lenin Raghuvanshi of PVCHR.
