Paisa Vasool

Paisa vasool:

1) In India, Grandmas' jewellery, sarees, toys, utensils, sweaters, shawls and so on are passed on to Moms. These are given to daughters which in turn are given to their children. So this is full paisa vasool with special and fond memories!

2) India is the original home of sustainability. Instead of uncomfortable synthetic diapers for babies, the first choice is to reuse Mom's and Grandma's old cotton sarees for making diapers. Paisa vasool!

3) I have used old NCERT books first used by my siblings. Now my niece uses them!

4) Essay: joke goes like this:-
Once Raju submitted essay about 'Cow' to his teacher. Irritated, the teacher asked, "Why have you submitted the exact same essay that your brother had written ten years back?" Raju replied, "But Ma'am, the cow is the same one!" Even for an essay, it is paisa vasool!

5) At the sabziwala, paisa vasool is seen in full force! People invariably say, "Put in some curry leaves and mint in the bag!" at the time of paying the vegetable vendor!

6) We love to innovate. It is called 'jugaad'. No wonder so many people have created new products.

Such a coincidence! Today only our #Odisha #handloom #brand @Utkalamrita did an Insta Live with @chetnasart on the topic of "Upcycling and Sustainable Fashion"! Watch it here!
