     নিজস্ব প্রতিনিধি:দূর্ঘটনায় কবলে পড়ে আহত হলেন বিশিষ্ট সাংবাদিক প্রাবন্ধিক ও নাট্য ব্যক্তিত্ব নৌশাদ মল্লিক। 

    শনিবার সকালে সোমসপুর পীরতলায় ১৮ নং বাস রুটের। কাছে নির্মীয়মান একটি দোকান ঘরের তদারকি করছিলেন তিনি। সেই সময় উল্টো দিক থেকে দুই তরুন উন্মত্ত অবস্থায় বাইক চালিয়ে দাঁড়িয়ে থাকা সাহিত্যিক নৌশাদদাকে সজোরে ধাক্কা মেরে পালিয়ে যায়।

    নৌশাদদার পায়ের এক্সরে রিপোর্টে হালকা ক্রাক ধরা পড়েছে। ডাক্তারের পরামর্শ ছিল ভাঙা পায়ে প্লাস্টার করতে হবে। কিন্তু পায়ে প্লাস্টার বেঁধে অকেজো হয়ে বসে থাকবার মানুষ তিনি নন।

     তাই তিনি বসিপুরে গিয়ে পায়ে জড়ি বেঁধে এনেছেন। পায়ের ব্যাথা নিয়েও তিনি সমানে দৌড়ঝাঁপ করে চলেছেন। বসিপুরে বহু মানুষ রোজ আসেন জড়ি বাঁধতে এবং ভালোও হচ্ছেন তাঁরা।নৌশাদ বললেন – আসলে ওঁদের অ্যানাটমিকাল নলেজ খুব ভালো। এছাড়া জড়ির ওষুধি গুনও কাজ করে আলাপরিতায়  তিনি। তাঁকে দেখতে আসা সাহিত্যিকত্রয় স্বপন হালদার,  দীনবন্ধু কুণ্ডু  এবং জারিফুল হককে ধন্যবাদ জ্ঞাপন করেন নৌশাদ মল্লিক।

    • With MagXmart, experience the Next-Gen E-commerce Shopping for all your daily needs under one roof

    · MagXmart endeavours to deliver electronics, furniture, branded clothes, jewellery, organic products, handmade products and e-book and more.

    · MagXmart will allow millions of artisans in India to showcase their products through this platform and reach an endless number of handmade product-loving consumers.

    · MagXmart is India’s first ecommerce platform that will feature the best of both worlds – handcraft and commercial products.

    · From Puja Samagri section to getting in touch with a Pandit, MagXmart aims to make your Puja Arrangements instantly and effortless.

    Kolkata 11 August 2022: Kolkata headquartered Magnetite India has announced to launch its revolutionary and Next-Gen E-commerce Software Solution MagXmart (www.magxmart.com). Keeping in mind the basic needs of our daily lives and visible gaps in the industry, this remarkable e-commerce software will change the way people buy products and avail of any services online.

    For the past couple of years, Magnetite India and its team have been working continuously to fix the loopholes in sustainability, waste management and India’s rural handcraft industry. Admittedly, India is a culturally diversified country with different handmade products from different states and UTs that reflect the uniqueness and greatness of India. In 2019-2020, Indian handcrafted products garnered a whopping $3.5 billion from worldwide exports.

    But as artisans do not have the sufficient funds, skills or knowledge to expand their business, handmade products’ penetration in the Indian market is not visible significantly. After analysing the domestic market, Magnetite India found no e-commerce sites are paying attention to this critical gap.

    With a vision in mind and a passion in nerves to uplift the Indian rural economy, Magnetite India worked relentlessly to remove the void between the consumers and sellers through this innovative e-commerce software. MagXmart will allow millions of artisans in India to showcase their products through this platform and reach an endless number of handmade product-loving consumers.

    Talented artisans merely get recognition for their extraordinary pieces of work, particularly some real talents from rural India. MagXmart commits to making the lives of the artisans from rural India much better than before. It will also ensure that the creative and talented artisans get the credit and respect for their piece of work.

    To make the product competitive and profitable in the market, with the handcrafted products, consumers will be able to order different types of commercial products (groceries, apparel, furniture, etc.) as well.

    Additionally, this unified e-commerce software offers a whole new Puja Samagri section. It has also launched the option to get in touch with a Pandit instantly to make your Puja so effortless and successful.

    Mr. Indranil Srimani, Managing Director, Magnetite India, said, “We are confident that MagXmart will not only invoke a revolution in the Indian handicrafts industry but also set a whole new benchmark in the E-commerce Industry in India. MagXmart endeavours to deliver electronics, furniture, branded clothes, jewellery, organic products, handmade products and e-book and more. We envision improving the lives of Indian handcraft artisans as well as rural talents who barely earn pennies to meet their daily needs. MagXmart is India’s first ecommerce platform that will feature the best of both worlds – handcraft and commercial products. We also hold a vision to reduce carbon emissions and make our environment green and friendly. We aim to promote handmade products to our fullest potential in India so that both parties (buyers & sellers) can reap benefit.”

    Mr. Indranil Srimani added, “We are committed to inspiring the true talent of Indian youth and creating a better sustainable future for them by patching the loopholes in the marketing of products online. We believe in the power of rural skills and we’re all in this together. We aim to bring the shift in demand and boost the homemade product industry, and the essential yet rare services in the city that are an integral part of our lives.”

    Who does not love a pet? They are an important part of our daily lives. The majority of us at least at some point in our life have a pet. Sometimes it gets really hard when we have to leave our pets at home with no one to take care of them. No worries! With our MagXmart software, you will be able to book pet caretaking services.

    Be mindful of the significance of software designing, our expert and creative designing team leaves no stone unturned to make the UI of the software super smooth, attractive and user-friendly that resonates with our vision.

    Indian Handlooms – A Priced Legacy @supportweaversindia

    0

    India is a nation of contrasts and is endowed with a rich textile legacy. Each region in India, from Kashmir to Kanyakumari produce a wide variety of unique and distinctive fabrics that serve as mediums to record local folklore, traditions and beliefs of their respective regions while carrying their regional identities. It is estimated that India is home to more than 100 such priceless textiles, despite the fact that the precise number of handloom fabrics in this country has never been determined and some have already been lost to time.

    Indian handloom products are in high demand across the globe due to the high level of creativity and exquisiteness of the Indian weaves, as well as the distinctive colour combinations made possible by the use of several indigenous natural dyes and their combinations. This is evidenced by the fact that 95% of the world hand woven fabrics are produced in India. The United States, United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, France, Japan, Saudi Arabia, etc are among the major importers of Indian handloom products. At the domestic front, the indigenous Indian handloom industry is the second largest employment provider after agriculture and employs about 5 lakh weavers working on over 23 lakh handlooms. It contributes significantly to both export revenue and the national GDP signifying high returns of a barely viable activity undertaken mostly as a cultural endeavour.

    This industry is currently at a crossroad with the rise in popularity of the synthetic mill-made counterparts that can be mass produced in shorter time, are easy to maintain and are less expensive. The preference and inclination of the younger generation today towards fast westernised fashion also poses a challenge to this indigenous industry. To top this, the handloom industry was also badly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and the reasons are manifold – (a) unavailability of raw materials due to a ban on public transportation facilities, (b) hefty increase in raw material prices up to an extent of 40% in yarns (hanks) and 30% in dyes, (c) lack of marketing facilities for the finished products due to the closure of internal and external market and (d) financial hardship for weavers brought on by low income, weak savings, and limited access to institutional credit. Despite having a built-in resilience system, the handloom industry has been unable to weather the current economic crisis brought on by this ongoing health disaster, especially with no government assistance available. Therefore, it requires a strong push for revival.

    Students of the Textiles Clothing & Fashion Studies Department of J.D Birla Institute affiliated to Jadavpur University along with others from the Human Development and Management Departments put up a Nukkad Naatak –street play and a fashion show on the occasion of the the National Handloom Day to draw attention and raise awareness towards the handloom industry in general, and the plight of the Indian weavers in particular. The street play focussed on the predicament of handloom weavers in relation to their meagre earnings vis-a-vis the middlemen and the urban shopkeepers. Through the fashion show, students showcased Indian saris in contemporary drape-styles – the Maheshwaris from Indore, Kanchipuram from Tamil Nadu, Banarasi from Banaras, Sambalpuri from Odisha, Tangail from Bengal, Kasauvu from Kerala and many more. A working loom from the college laboratory was also set-up to demonstrate the weaving techniques and students shared important messages through posters and placards. Many early-morning walkers and bystanders at Rabindra Sarobar Lake stopped after their early morning walk to take in this spectacle and innovative event. Some of them also shared their concerns about the Indian handlooms. To go in with the theme of the occasion, students, parents, teachers, and staff from the Institute also donned Indian handloom clothing.

    As responsible residents of this wonderful country, it is desired that we make efforts to promote our heritage and lend support to our weavers. This calls for educating students at all levels about the handlooms and encouraging them to use Indian handloom during festivals and special occasions. There is also a need to create awareness to identify fake and synthetic reproductions. In this digital age, efforts should be made to reach out to the weavers directly so that they derive maximum benefit for all such economic transactions.
