India, which ranks second after China in silk production, would become ?completely self-sufficient?
in silk in the next two years, textiles minister Smriti Irani said recently. Technical textiles are the future of textiles and the government is extremely keen on supporting and taking forward this sector, she at an event organised by
a top business chamber.


Textiles are even used by the Indian Space Research Organisation?its shuttle programme uses a carbon-based textile from
one of its establishments in Ahmedabad. The event was organised in New Delhi by the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry.
India produces a cotton variety called Shankar that is better in quality than Egyptian cotton,
she said.


?… So it?s also about finding your marketing avenues for the raw material that we have in our
country, the other larger producer
of cotton and jute. Till you don?t realise your strengths, you cannot have more people interested in
that avenue of industry,? she added.
