You know you are not enough. Why do you fight it?”
I hear a voice within me say this, firmly, with conviction. And, I give in. My insecurities push me to look away from the mirror, they ask me why I can’t be as beautiful, as strong as that other person. They ask me why my life is a miss. They point at me and sneer. Sometimes, I think of how ‘enough’ feels like and I stare at silence. But then, I never stop asking. I keep trying to find that way to reach a part of me that feels complete, and I am sure I will one day. This ‘flaw’, this insecurity, led the way for me to understand myself. And, I love myself enough to work on it, even when I fail most times, This is my story. What is yours?

Handloom cotton is a type of fabric that is woven using hand operated looms. Two sets of interlacing yarns, the warp (length) and weft (width), are woven on a mechanised loom operated by weavers. These looms do not use electricity. Human handling lends the fabrics a unique feel and renders the fabrics more value. The resultant fabric is softer, more durable and much more comfortable than machine-made fabrics. Handloom cotton is more breathable and thus feels lighter in summers and provides more insulation in winters. The dyeing process also becomes easier for handloom cotton as the colour penetration is substantially more. Hues are absorbed better thus look resplendent on handloom cotton.
