*The Guwahati Museum collections showcases other categories of articles as well ...but it was a delight to discover that textiles are the primary focus of the museum. The people who created this art, probably had no idea that their creations would delight people in the future. The weavers, were probably unsung heroes ...creating beauty just out of passion for 'svaanto sukhaaye' reasons - not for glory or for money but simply for the joy of creation! It would be foolish to say that this showcase is a tribute to those weavers, because they are all dead and are past caring for any such tributes... This is at best, just an attempt to remotely share the joy of beholding the legacy left by some beautiful simple passionate but unknown people - a legacy of love, a legacy of beauty that I stumbled upon a few hundred years after it was created! jm Feb 17, 2011 p.s.
