In India, a spinning wheel is an instrument used for spinning wool and cotton fibers.
For centuries, it was considered a symbol of wealth.
Now, however, it is becoming a symbol for the exploitation of workers.
The ‘spinners’ who make the spinners’ spin are usually the owners of spinning wheels, who have also made a lot of money from them.
The problem with spinning wheels is that the yarn is made of coarse and difficult-to-distribute fibers that can take time to grow.
When they are finished, the spinning wheels are often stacked together on a spinning cart.
This makes them much heavier than the other spinning wheels and their weight increases over time.
If the spinning cart breaks, the owner loses the profit.
According to a recent report by the Indian Council of Agricultural Research, spinning wheel mills have an average annual turnover of ₹300 crore and employ 1.7 million people.
However, as the Indian government tries to curb industrialisation, the government is looking to create more spinners.
According to the government’s own statistics, there were nearly 4,000 spinning wheel factories operating in India in 2016-17, up from just over 2,000 in 2015-16.
In the current fiscal, the National Sample Survey Organisation (NSSO) is expected to collect data on how many spinning wheel manufacturers are operating across India.
