डॉ. मोनिका शर्मा का लेख : कहां गए देसी खिलौने

The number of memories that are being used by generation to generation do not appear in the hands of today's generation, with wood, clay, or toys prepared from a particular object available in every province. The colour of the cultural heritage of every part of the country was saved by the beloved companions of childhood. How lost are the toys made by our master-made artisans who have been the hallmark of forging a whole cultural-traditional system.

In the past, Prime Minister Modi mentioned about homegrown toys in the Mann ki Baat programme. Calling upon India to be the world's toy hub, the Prime Minister said it was time for local toys to go on vocal. It is noteworthy that apart from promoting manufacturing of Indian toys as an industry, many other serious aspects are also involved. At the same time, there are many questions in mind that see the shining toys away from the deadly and traditional texture decoration for the health of the new generation. Where and how did our adorable desi toys get lost? The number of memories that are being used by generation to generation do not appear in the hands of today's generation, with wood, clay, or toys prepared from a particular object available in every province. The colour of the cultural heritage of every part of the country was saved by the beloved companions of childhood. How lost are the toys made by our master-made artisans who have been the hallmark of forging a whole cultural-traditional system.

In fact, all such questions related to homegrown toys related to children's entertainment and personality development are related to many socio-cultural aspects. Toys reach the next generation are associated with the loss of our folk culture. The employment opportunities in the villages are being exhausted. We have a large market for foreign toys. In the past few years, many traditional occupations have also been closed down by children who have not missed homegrown toys. Wooden cart and clay dolls have disappeared from the market littered with exotic toys. While in every state of our country, there are toys related to folk art and culture. It may be recalled that the Katputli in Rajasthan, arecanut toys made at Rewa in Madhya Pradesh and the toys of Channapatna in Karnataka have been very famous. The wood art of Banaras in Uttar Pradesh is famous all over the world. Apart from decorative items, wooden toys like trains and dolls are also made. Tanjore's dancing dolls, Kondapalli in Vijayawada district of Andhra Pradesh and Etcoppa toys of Visakhapatnam are also very famous. Sadly, how many such toys, which are considered to be the hallmark of every part of the country, have now been removed from childhood. At present, these toys are really needed to teach children the lessons of an intuitive and sensitive lifestyle. It is noteworthy that most of our homegrown toys are a lesson in the glimpse of rural life and the connectivity of nature. For older children, they can become loving companions of entertainment as well as grassroots engagement and understanding. Toys like animals, birds, dolls, bulls, peas, farmers are really like a tableau of common people's lives.

Widely understood, local toys are not just toys. Homegrown toys made of goods like wood, clay, cloth and yarn are the carriers of the tradition and the medium of employment generation. Are a means of understanding Indian culture and lifestyle. With the heart of children, they are the means of giving them life-related education. Above all, India's artisans and arts are not only the country but the world's identity. At present, when unemployment figures are increasing in a country with a large population like India, it has become necessary to promote such local products. On the one hand, foreign toys have captured our market, and on the other hand, poor toys on the quality front are also poses for the health of children. Some time back, according to a report by the quality control of India study, 67 per cent of the toys imported into India did not stand in all the checks of safety standards. While 30 per cent of plastic toys were not conforming to safety standards. It is disturbing that 80% of imported toys do not meet mechanical and physical safety standards. Not only that, 45 per cent of soft toys are using more heavy metal than the sanctioned level. These toys are proving to be harmful to our children. If the colour on a toy is poisonous, it is a serious thing in itself. The child is blind and keeps these toys in the mouth while playing. This color can be dangerous for him. Moreover, the plastic that is being used is not good for the health of the child. According to an estimate, about 60 per cent of toys in the country are imported from China. It is noteworthy that we have a large industry of toys exported to this neighbouring country, but most of the Chinese items are always under the question of quality. It is important to promote toy production in our country.
