Surat illuminates textile markets for Swarnim Gujarat

Apr '10
With the Swarnim Gujarat celebrations at its peak, the textile traders in the country's leading synthetic textile centre, Surat, have lit up all the 140 textile markets from April 29 and will be lit up till May 1.

The Federation of Surat Textile Traders Association (FOSTTA) has urged the trader's community to partake in the festivities by decorating the textile markets with flamboyant lights.

FOSTTA President, Devkishan Manghani, said that, though members of the organisation belong to different states, the city of Surat in particular and the state of Gujarat per say has bestowed them with affluence and affection. Hence, they consider Gujarat as their hometown, and will therefore partake in the celebrations with complete zeal and vigour.

Of around 55,000 textile traders operating from the 140 textile markets in Surat, 95 percent of them are migrants from states like Delhi, Punjab, Maharashtra, Chandigarh, Haryana, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh. Over the years they have significantly contributed in intensifying the synthetic fabric market, both domestically as well as internationally.
