In a series of posts, the singer said, “I also understand that in case of weavers – the master weaver holds power clout and caste privilege and in the village ecosystem and economy, these barriers are tough to cross. The weavers are also supplied the looms by some kinda ‘artist managers’ who may actually have them in some sort of a bonded labour loop with ridiculously low wages. Unless a weaver breaks these boundaries using the support systems, maybe a lot may be lost.” In the post, she went on to detail about the significance of fair wages and the worrying practise of underpaying artisans.
“It is heartbreaking to see artisans and their families saying we wont teach this to our children. Nothing shows the degradation of our land, knowledge and culture than this. And it isn’t ‘Western Culture’ ‘modern ideas’ that did it. It is just the petty behaviour and shadiness of our very own mentalities and of this land,” she added.
