India is currently going back to the traditional era of hand made commodities.Standing as a huge country with man power India can enhance it's economy by empowering handicrafts and also give a traditional touch to our long lost customs and usage.
Handicraft industry is slowly climbing up in India when compared to that of others,it is also being endorsed by many Bollywood stars. Irrfan Khan in his recent visit to Bangalore mentioned the importance and growth of handicrafts industry in the recent days. Be it khadi, when set the trend in India which was an initiative by our Prime Minister Narendra Modi or the hand made sarees, though in snail's pace, our traditional industries are getting recognized in the global market.
This in turn increases the trade relations and promotes Indian products in the global market. Starting from weaving industries to small scale industries such as basket making, hand arts, paintings, glass work, saree designs, etc,all of them are used not only by common man but also preferred by celebraties these days.
This will definitely increase employment ratio in rural areas and also serve as a source of alternative employement to farmers throughout the year. This will indirectly promote women empowerment by facilitating women to work and make a living out of handicrafts.
This ideology of adapting handicrafts will indeed promote the concept of Make in India which will increase employment and also develop economy of the country by indugling in export of hand made produts.This has to be promoted world wide by endorsement of the product by celebrities and enhance GDP of our country and also put our labour power into action.
