an international makeover The board has roped in Paris-based design professor and footwear designer Neona Skane to conduct workshops and train local artisans and chappal-makers The board is also taking the help of current and former businessmen and experts from other footwear giants such as Bata to conduct these workshops The MSKVI Board is also planning to explore ways to take Maharashtra’s popular handcrafted Kolhapuri chappals to the international market “Observing that the Kolhapuri chappal market has been on a decline we decided hold a workshop to identify the factors behind this This was the first time we were successful in getting footwear industry representatives and chappal-makers face to face There was an interaction where people gave their suggestions and it was decided that Kolhapuri chappal needs a facelift We felt there was an urgent need to improve their aesthetics comfort and aligning these products keeping in with the market trends The aim through these workshops is to make Kolhapuris contemporary and receptive to Indian and international markets without losing their traditional and heritage value” said Richa Bagla CEO MSKVI Board To start with the board has got together traditional Kolhapuri chappal-makers and artisans and has tagged them under one brand name Kalatmak Kolhapuri to help consumers identify genuine heritage products As part of these workshops Skane is visiting houses of local artisans in the villages of Kolhapur and interacting with them teaching them modern techniques and understanding factors behind the deceleration of their growth “Artisans who had lost hope are now showing interest in chappal-making once again We were told that we are not just artisans but artists and designers of India’s most iconic footwear under the brand name Kalatmak Kolhapuri” said Prakash Satpute a local artisan The Kolhapuri chappals trade a home-based cottage industry worth around Rs 9 crore according to local manufacturers has been on the decline for many years now mainly due to availability of the more colourful and cheaper copies of the leather slippers from northern parts of the country and neighbouring Karnataka The closure of local leather tanneries violating green norms and the disinterested new generation further took a toll on the industry The Kolhapuri chappals are handmade and the tradition of making it has been passed on to the younger generation for long “Better tools techniques and raw material will boost production and quality while an international standard of branding will attract youngsters” R A Buchade District Gramodyog Officer Kolhapur There are around 10000 artisans in Kolhapur working at 100-odd units Around 3500 families are involved in chappal-making Bagla added: “We are trying to upgrade the skills of these traditional artisans so that they can come up with designs to be launched in open market in India as well as internationally For this we are involving resource persons including Skane the former sourcing head of an international footwear giant and Paris-based shoe design professor” Under its first workshop conducted in August-September the board trained 35 artisans and is planning to rope in more during the next series of workshops to be held in December “By improvement in traditional Kolhapuri we mean better and comfortable soles finesse These chappals which are mostly flat-soled can have pencil heels wedges for women colours for youth different variety for men and even for children The artisans will be trained in new techniques patterns and industry trend” said Bagla The MSKVI is focusing on the project with an aim to tap international markets including the European countries where handcrafted products are in demand ‘Nakshatra’ Collection Soon If everything works as planned the new and improved range of traditional Kolhapuri chappals — the ‘Nakshatra’ collection — will hit the footwear stores and malls across the state soon The MSKVI Board is looking at various marketing channels like e-marketing malls exhibitions and even exports The board officials are already in talks with footwear showrooms to display Kolhapuri chappals at their outlets “The idea is to get authentic original Kolhapuri to people Earlier we did not have an organised market for Kolhapuri chappals outside Kolhapur However we are now exploring different marketing channels to make Kolhapuri easily available to consumers with variety of designs and improved quality under Kalatmak Kolhapuri initiative” said Richa Bagla CEO MSKVI Board For all the latest India

News By: Julio Ribiero Book:Byculla to Bangkok Author: S Hussain Zaidi Publisher: HarperCollins Pages: 304 pages Price: Rs 299 This is a book about gangsters and molls and obliquely about the policemen and the politicians without whose cooperation these gangs could not have thrived It is a crime reporter’s inside view of Mumbai’s underworld and the rule of the major dons who straddled this scene in the 1990s and the first decade of this century Every big city in the world is cursed with an underworld S Hussain Zaidi is quite right when he concludes that economic deprivation coupled with the lack of employment opportunities lure young men in the slums to join criminal gangs Add to that the juxtaposition of slums and high-rises which dot Mumbai’s skyline and the innate leadership qualities of those who decide to lead this adventurous though dangerous life Zaidi mentions educated boys like Ashwin Naik who took the plunge The reader will soon lose count of the number of killings and shootouts that Zaidi has so meticulously recorded It is difficult to remember who killed whom and at whose instance Fast friends become sworn enemies Gangsters shift base abroad — to Dubai Karachi Bangkok and mastermind extortions drug operations real estate deals and killings from safe locations There is also a hint of a communal divide particularly after the March 1993 bomb blast which Dawood and Chhota Shakeel planned in revenge against the Shiv Sena’s pogrom of December 1992 In fact Hindu gangsters continued to be prominent in Dawood’s gang and Muslim gangsters in Chhota Rajan’s Gang loyalty and the benefits they derived from their ongoing connections are more influential than religion Zaidi has sourced his information with great care It is a murky scene where rogue policemen do the bidding of preferred ganglords and stage encounters to eliminate their patron’s opponents It is an open secret that many encounter specialists have profited from this exercise Criminals in uniform would be an apt description for these gentlemen and Zaidi refers to them throughout his narrative but surprisingly with respect Zaidi makes a disturbing disclosure: one police commissioner mentioned by name actually specified a quota for each police station for encounter killings If this is true it only tells us of the depths to which policing had sunk in the “urbs prima in India” It is unfortunately true that the criminal justice system has failed to engender any fear in the minds of the city’s criminals The book mentions numerous cases of major dons being acquitted by the courts Were the acquittals due to poor investigation Indifferent prosecution Orthe lack of balance in evaluating evidence while pronouncing judgments There is no doubt that corruption has emasculated these three arms of the criminal justice system thus emboldening gangsters In addition jailors have been allowing major ganglords to direct their operatives from the confines of their prison cells Zaidi has given instances of this phenomenon as well as of politicians getting involved in this sordid business How do we address this massive problem and restore the rule of law This is a question that Zaidi never intended to answer His narrative is meant to titillate the curiosity that most law-abiding citizens harbour about crime and criminals and in that he has succeeded Julio Ribiero is a former
