Hi everybody

I started this blog in honour of the silkworm, a tiny animal belonging to class insecta which produce one of the most sought after materials by man- silk. I wish to cover everything related to this humble creature. Its history- more than 4000 years old; the emperors who adored it- Huang- De of China to Tippu of India, the path it had travelled - the dry deserts of Takli makkan to the snow clad peaks of Himalaya, its biology - of interest to entomologists, microbiologists, pathologists, anatomists, physiologists and molecularbiologists; its economic uses - of interest to women, men the rich and the poor and finally its future possible role on the fate of many countries. Please visit this blog again.

The metamorphosis is in progress.......................
