Fancy Charpai

American e-commerce website Etsy quoting over Rs 1 lakh for a charpai has sparked a debate on Indian social media. Usually sold at less than 1/20the the price quoted on Etsy, the charpai, as all know, is a functional bed in most villages.

The charpai is the latest entry in this trend of reinventing desi products. A start-up from Germany rediscovered the pattal, plates made of dried leaves, and sold them calling them nature-friendly plates. The leaf plate has been around in India for far longer in different parts of the country.

The Etsy product description for the charpai is: A traditional Indian bed, hand-crafted with high-quality materials and beautiful decor.

Tweeting on the charpai sale on Etsy, a user expressed his happiness that how people of the USA are buying the charpai. Another user noted the very high price and noted that at this price, Americans can afford to make a 2-3 day trip to India.

Some have called a spade a spade and have cried hoarse on social media, others found the price worth the true value of craftsmanship.

E-commerce websites have taken the rustic mainstream, be it puja items, havan kunds or even cow dung cakes. While e-commerce sites have zeroed in on fashion, they sell quite a wide range of apparel and footwear ranging from the quotidian to the downright weird. Even torn T-shirts are doing the rounds along with pouches fashioned from garbage bags, yep.

The charpai maybe a stretch but successive governments at the Centre have promoted village and cottage industries. The reinvention of khadi as a versatile fabric to be worn either as office wear as shirts and the kurta as leisurewear has been a lifesaver for traditional handloom weavers, in the face of the cheap oceans of industrial polyester.

Bigg Boss OTT 3: Sai Ketan Rao hurls chair at Lovekesh Kataria, almost hits him in heated argument, video surfaces

In the most recent episode of Bigg Boss OTT 3, an intense verbal clash unfolded between contestants Sai Ketan Rao and Lovekesh Kataria, sending shockwaves among viewers. The incident commenced innocuously enough with Lovekesh making a passing comment about another contestant, only to be swiftly challenged by Sai for unwarranted interference. What began as a mere disagreement quickly snowballed into a fiery argument within the confines of the notorious reality show.

Tensions reached a boiling point when Sai, in a fit of vexation, hurled a piece of Bigg Boss property in Lovekesh’s direction, intensifying the already charged atmosphere. Sai’s subsequent shirt removal and aggressive approach towards Lovekesh alarmed onlookers, but prompt intervention from Ranvir Shorey averted the situation from escalating into a physical altercation.

The public outcry following the ruckus was palpable as citizens took to social media to express divergent opinions. While some defended Sai Ketan, attributing his reaction to Lovekesh’s provocation, others rebuked both contestants for their use of abusive language and aggressive demeanour. This discord not only shed light on varying perceptions of acceptable conduct in a reality show environment but also underscored the blurred lines between entertainment and conflict.

As tensions simmered within the Bigg Boss house post-incident, the repercussions of this heated exchange are anticipated to reverberate through the contestants in the days ahead. The incident, stirring a frenzy of commentary from spectators and critics alike, serves as a poignant reminder of the emotional rollercoaster and social intricacies inherent in the realm of reality television.

Meanwhile, in a swift turn of events, Adnaan Shaikh’s entry into Bigg Boss OTT 3 as a wildcard contestant—following Chandrika Dixit’s recent eviction—was short-lived as he faced immediate expulsion for sharing information from outside the house with the contestants, marking a surprising twist in the ongoing drama within the Bigg Boss domain.
