The beautiful way in which she has defined the three stages of life and connected them with the weavers, in an equally beautiful manner our Indian weavers have been weaving magic for generations. While weaving I understood life.
The weft is built thread by thread, weaving in and out between the warp threads, touching each one as it passes by; in the same way our daily actions weave through our values, touching each one on the way. If you forget to turn back, you may skip some warp threads, and find loose places uneven edges, similarly with the life if we forget the values for a while we are nothing. We are not here to judge, only to learn. Weaving has made me today what I am, it thought me to built step by step.
I feel very proud to share that I hail from the weavers community born to shri Chandu Ramanaiah and Chandu Subbulu with a loving younger sibling Chandu Prasad. Though our family is small of 4 members. When we are travelling on a highway with pleasant music and you are in cloud 9, suddenly if speadbreaker appears how we will be shocked, same thing happened with me when I was doing my schooling and suddenly dad had a serious health issues.
As I mentioned he is only the source of income, to support family and his medical care alongwith my schooling I started weaving for daily livelihood. My observation, while dad weaving helped me to pickup fast and that weaving thought so many lessons to me. Doing jugalbandi at that young age of managing family, dad health and my studies, made me more introvert. Because once, school finish I rush home for weaving, no much friends, no socialising.
Days were rolling down, and I joined my BTech, the funny is I am the classic example to bunk the seminar class everytime, reason is my aloneness had developed a fear to speak. And I never tried to get ridoff it. But, Self Growth started when I met with an accident in 2015 and I have witnessed my dad’s hard work very closely, it was like bloodsucking to me.
pI wanted to make my father happy and help him in work by getting success, so joined Medha spoken English class. This I have not shared with anyone, when the next seminar day has arrived, I was very much in the class, ofcourse professor was shocked and usually what happens you all know, he called me only first. I have taken a deep breath and moved towards the stage, I still feel is it me, that day I spoke 1 hour the entire seminar. Everyone were shocked and those compliments those claps have boosted energy in me and made me to think do something different.
I joined Impact, where I acquired knowledge, confidence and skills, which made to take free sessions to the school children. Here the word Entrepreneurship has ignited me to look into a new life. While pursuing B.Tech only I wanted to develop weavers community by bringing the weaved sarees online world. But, I failed due to lack of knowledge, Money and support. From failures I learned to do something we need that skill and knowledge of it.
To get on with life and acquire money for the entrepreneur from 2017 to 2019, I worked as Career Counsellor and Education Consultant. While doing this, I use to feel I should learn more and do something to weavers, then the boom of digital marketing was in the market. I joined Digital Marketing Training and Internship in 2019 to 2020. After the course, I felt like abhimanyu in the battle field of naukari. I was trying for good company for daily expenditure started freelancing.
At this point a politician who is like brother informed me regarding politics. I don’t have 1% interest while I started this political work. But, there is no other choice, one side heavy competition in digital marketing and pandemic one side. My dream of entrepreneur has stuck to me and thought, why don’t I do this politics digitalisation.
