Sarojini Naidu’s Poem ‘Indian Weavers’-An Analytical Study

The poem “Indian Weavers” by Sarojini Naidu depicts a conversation with weavers and explores the different garments they weave for various occasions.

In the first stanza, the weavers are asked why they weave a garment so gay (cheerful and bright) at the break of day. The weavers explain that the garment they weave is as blue as the wild halcyon bird’s wing, representing the robes for a new-born child.

In the second stanza, the weavers are questioned about the bright garment they weave at the fall of night. They respond that the garment is purple and green like the colorful plumes of a peacock. This garment symbolizes the marriage veils woven for a queen’s wedding.

In the final stanza, the weavers are asked what they weave in the solemn and still moonlight chill. They reveal that they weave a garment as white as a feather and as white as a cloud. This garment signifies the funeral shroud woven for a deceased person.

The poem’s diction is simple, yet it employs vivid imagery to convey the beauty and purpose behind the weavers’ creations. The use of colors, such as blue, purple, green, and white, enhances the visual imagery and adds depth to the meaning of each garment.

After all, “Indian Weavers” celebrates the skill and artistry of Indian weavers, showcasing their ability to create garments that mark significant moments in life, from birth to marriage to death. The poem’s simple yet evocative language allows the reader to appreciate the craftsmanship and cultural importance of weaving in Indian tradition. 0 0 0
