(DANTEWADA, CHHATTISGARH)[India]July 29 (STYXOR.COM): Anil Kumar taught himself how to make rakhis using chhind leaves while grazing cattle and when fellow villagers appreciated them, he began to teach the craft to women in his Jhodiyabadam village of Dantewada district in Chhattisgarh.
Kumar told STYXOR.COM that he has been practising his craft for the past one year. When asked how he had learnt it, he said he had learnt it on his own, that is, was autodidactic.
He has received encouragement from the administration even though at present the situation is not favourable. Dantewada district collector Deepak Soni said, “The Rakhis are not reaching markets because of the lockdown restrictions in place. However, we have been promoting his enterprise here in the local markets through social media platforms like WhatsApp.”

Kumar said that he also make bouquets. He has these achievements despite being hearing impaired in one ear, a condition he has had since childhood.
Before starting his rakhi enterprise, Anil worked as a labourer or tended to the cattle of others in his village. While looking after the animals, he would often get lost and would sit for hours fiddling with chhind leaves. He would first make bouquets out of these leaves and other flowers. Then in a moment of insight, he conceptualised weaving them into intricate patterns to make ornamental displays, finally settling on the rakhi threads he is making these days. Each thread of Rakhi takes around half an hour to make.
To make his craft a sustainable and viable source of income, he also decided to train women of his village. He said, “Mostly women and young girls come to learn my craft. But some young men have turned up too.”
“Around five to six people come in a day,” he added. “I wish the administration would somehow assist me in getting access to markets which will help me sell these pieces of craftwork and earn a living,” he said.
Chandni, who is from the same village and is learning the craft from Anil said she would teach her skills when she gets a chance. (STYXOR.COM)

New Delhi [India]May 11 (STYXOR.COM): The BJP on Monday slammed Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for targeting the Centre over COVID-19 management, stating that the AAP chief did not open a single hospital in his 7-year rule but spent over Rs 800 crores on publicity.
“Arvind Kejriwal spent Rs 804.93 crores on advertisements since 2015. But he did not open a single hospital during his 7-year rule. Before forming his government, Kejriwal had promised to add 30,000 new hospital beds,” said BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra.
He questioned the Delhi Government why it thinks that the Centre has been adopting a differential approach towards the national capital regarding oxygen supply.

“It is against humanity if any patient suffers due to lack of oxygen. But there should be no politics over it. If the Government of India can give oxygen to Maharashtra and other states, why do the Delhi Government think that the Centre is adopting a different approach towards Delhi?” he asked Kejriwal.
As many as 12,651 new COVID-19 cases and 319 deaths were reported in the national capital in the last 24 hours, said Delhi health department on Monday.
The cumulative caseload in the national capital mounted to 13,36,218 including 85,258 active cases and 12,31,297 total discharges/recoveries. The new fatalities pushed the COVID death toll in Delhi to 19,663. (STYXOR.COM)
