Godhra’s Muslims stick with dandias
The right-wing groups in Godhra may have managed to ban Muslims from entering garbas venues. But the community will still have an integral
presence, not only in the town, but across the state in Navratri festival. Not many know that Godhra is the largest manufacturer of dandias in the country and the trade is largely dominated by Muslims. The town has around 300 dandia makers who make the sticks in varying amounts. The sector is highly unorganized and sellers say that the number of dandias they make would run into lakhs. These are sold not only in the state, but even in other parts of the country.
The units otherwise manufacture items like rolling pins and rolling boards through the year. But for three to four months ahead of Navratri, the focus shifts to making ‘dandias’. The units make the sticks from wood procured locally and then colour them in a variety of colours. The town specializes in making painted wooden dandias that are the most popular and not the variety embellished with brocade that the manufacturers say are largely for show and not good to play with.
