Paithani Saree

I visited this place called "Paithan" in Maharashtra,
town is famous for Handloom sarees,

Paithani Sarees
Known the world over as a poem hand woven in silk and gold, Paithani Sarees are for those with discerning and refined taste. The art of weaving Paithani flourished in 200B.C., during Satvahana era. since then Paithani is coveted in India as a precious heirloom passing on from generation to generation. Exquisite silk from Paithani was exported to many countries and was traded in return for gold and precious stones. Shear dedication and the faith of the weavers has kept alive Paithani silk work for more than 2000years. Real Paithani is hand woven pure silk and gold/silver

Intricate designs on pallu and border is a specialty of Paithani Sarees. Motifs on pallu are generally peacock, lotus, mango and other designs taken form Ajanta Caves. Traditional creative artistry and pain staking workmanship combine to form this unique cloth. Paithani Sarees can take between 2 months to years to manufacture, depending on border and pallu design and costs from Rs.6000/- to Rs.500,000.

Zapatalela Pravasi

“Zapatalela Pravasi”
(one more childhood book)
Marathi translation of “Around the world in 80 days” by Jules Verne,
Translated by My Alltime favorite and inspiring writer B.R.Bhagavat,
Cover design by My Alltime favorite and inspiring artist Deenanath Dalal.
“Zapatalela Pravasi” literally means: Possessed Traveler
Actually ‘zapatalela’ term used in Maharashtra for someone who is possessed by spirits, ghosts,.

In this particular story our lead character ‘Phileas Fogg’ is possessed by the challenge to trip around the world and finish it within 80 days,
(now this story is written more than 100 years ago, nowdays you’ll finish touring it in 8 days)

Check out the illustrations from the book,
Guess; who is the artist,......

It is "Balasaaheb Thakare" of Shivsena.
More Childhood Memoirs later....
