Sircilla weaver behind matchbox sarees now weaves national anthem on silk fabric

Powerloom weaver Veldi Hari Prasad from Sircilla, who is known for his "matchbox sarees," has made headlines again with his new creation. This time it is the national anthem woven on silk fabric without any stitches. He wove the logo of 'Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav' and the India map with the Tricolour in the centre. The national anthem in Telugu was also woven in the fabric. "As the nation celebrates 75 years of Independence Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav, I wanted to do something new and remarkable for the country. I planned this concept of weaving the national anthem in Telugu a month ago. I finished weaving it in five days. I'm proud to say I'm the first one to weave the national anthem on silk fabric," said Hari.
