SRUTI's effort on Muga Culture of Assam.PROLOGUE.
Assamese silk [ Mulberry and Non mulberry.] is an inseparable part of Assamese art and culture. Today the one horned Rhino and Muga can be compared equally , because this two things are not available in the other parts of the world. But it is sad to say that the threat occurring to the smooth living environment of Rhino is going to be same in case of Muga silk worm. Every one is blaming the environmental pollution and lack of required atmosphere for this unwanted situation. If we study the various hindrances of rearing muga silk we can come to a conclusion that ,excluding the adverse climatic condition we have many other hindrances which can be executed through proper scientific approach of rearing muga.
It is known to all that because of lack of scientific knowledge , shouldering loss in muga cultivation a large number of muga rearers became tea and rubber planters. In upper Assam a large number of muga rearers have turned in to small tea growers which can be described as diplorable situation of muga culture. Instantaneous encouragement to the traditional muga rearers and new entrants of this field is indispensable. Otherwise increase in productivity of muga cocoon will be nothing except day dream.
Having observed the situation , SRUTI under the banner of RAINBOW NORTH EAST is aiming to dedicate for the humble cause of Muga Rearing. SRUTI will work ceaselessly for the growth of muga production and for the welfare of muga rearers including its auxiliary factors.
Silk Rearing Unit Of Trade and Impel [ SRUTI.] is organised under the banner of RAINBOW NORTH EAST. The reeling and weaving training centre of RAINBOW NORTH EAST is situated at Sundarpur Tiniali , Joysagar and its H.O. is at Milan Nagar Melachokar Sivasagar.
