The next issue of Hinduism Today is almost ready to go to press next week. This is another beautiful issue full of fascinating stories.

    I look forward to reading about how silk is made in detail.
    I have thought on the process of silk making,and found that they do have to kill the moths to make it :(. My Husband Prasanna told me there is one company in India that does not actually kill the moth to make silk, this is good to know. :o)
    So if I want a silk Sari I can buy it from them :o)

    Sorry Moths :(.
