Since its inception in 2019 under the SFURTI scheme with the technical assistance of KIIT-TBI, UDALA WEAVING CLUSTER under the firm management of the implementing agency Mauna Dhwani Foundation has made astounding progress both in empowering local artisans and propelling the traditional weaving industry into the global stage. To elevate the artistic spirit, bathed in the sacred blessings of Lord Ram, the Festival of Lights was celebrated in grandeur at the CFC by the Mauna Dhwani Foundation, marking a joyous occasion during Diwali.
The Diwali celebration not only symbolized the unity of artisans within the cluster but also served as a vibrant thread weaving through the rich cultural tapestry of our great nation. Tradition forms the very essence of a nation, infusing it with depth and significance. The Diwali celebration at the CFC site of the cluster (an initiative dedicated to uplifting traditional crafts under the SFURTI scheme), serves as a vivid realization of the scheme’s vision and mission. It is a testament to the enduring spirit of cultural heritage and the commitment to preserving and promoting the time-honored crafts that define the identity of our country.
