INDIA’S 72nd Independence Day CELEBRATIONS BY MRS RATAN KAUL and SHILPA RAINA WAHAL

On the eve of India’s 72nd INDEPENDENCE DAY …….PUBLIC DIPLOMACY FORUM  by Mrs Ratan Kaul & Shilpa Raina Wahal organised a grand fashion show to support the campaign COTTON IS COOL . All the celebrities walked the ramp in bespoke MISE A’ JOUR couture cotton garments to support the cotton industry which employs millions across the country ..

 Cotton is not just a fabric- it is a philosophy, it is a social and economic reality, it is meditation, it is a window into our heritage of crafts and textiles, it is dignity of labour, it takes us back to our roots, it connects us to the soil, it connects us to our ancestors. Cotton connects cultures and societies and is hence a unifying force.
For all these reasons, and many more, Mahatma Gandhi decided that Khadi  / Cotton should be the symbol of our freedom struggle. The simple spinning wheel was the perfect example of his vision of Sarvodaya- a world where man could live in harmony with nature and with fellow human beings without exploitation, without fear and with friendship towards all.” said Mrs Ratan Kaul Founder President Public Diplomacy Forum

Cotton is something that we use every day. Looking at the cotton industry at large, cotton contributes a lot to our GDP. We are of one the largest cotton producing and cotton wearing countries in the world, and most Indians don’t know that. We must take great pride in such facts.
The Fashion show  might look symbolic on the face. But in reality, it is more about the realisation and awareness about of the importance of cotton in our daily wardrobe and how cool it actually is !!!The fashion show also helps make people realise that cotton can also be considered as a luxurious fabric  This initiative will make cotton popular said Shilpa Raina Wahal  Director Projects ,Public Diplomacy Forum
