The news was washed out that this “famous” sari of Nobel winner Nun, who died in 197, has been given a trademark to prevent “unfair” use by people for business purposes. The Indian government recognized Sari as the intellectual property of the Missionary of Charity in September last year, when the nun was declared a saint by the Vatican, but the order had decided not to make it public.
For almost half a century, Roman Catholic nuns, who worked with the poor in the Indian city of Kolkata (Calcutta), Mother Teresa wore a simple sari sari with three blue stripes on the borders; one was thicker than the rest. A senior nun, working for the Missionary of Charity, a 67-year-old cordial, who has more than 3,000 nuns in the world, has now become a religious order of this global order.
Kolkata-based lawyer Vishwajit Sarkar, who works with pro-bone for the order, says that he applied for a trademark in 2013. “It came to my mind that the color of the sari should be preserved in order to prevent the blue border of the future, for misuse of any future for commercial purposes,” he told me “if you wear or use color patterns in any form If you want us, you can write us and if we believe there is no business purpose, then we will allow it.”
It was her Identity
The story was that in 1948, with the permission of Rome, the Albanian nun began to wear it and put a small cross on his shoulder. According to some accounts, Nun chose blue border because it was associated with purity. For more than three decades, SAARC has been woven by leprosy houses, which are operating in a house on the outskirts of Kolkata.
Nuns says that Mother Teresa had issued orders before her death that her name should not be used for “commercial purposes”.
Her name was exploited for commercial gain
Accordingly, the Government of India had helped in order to trademark its name two decades ago. Nevertheless, the order’s nun has complained that the name of Mother Teresa is being used for commercial benefits: There is a school in Nepal where teachers are not complaining about getting the salary; A priest raised money in Romania using the name of the order, In Kolkata, the shops near the headquarters of the order tell the customers that income from the sale of memorabilia was donated in the order; And a cooperative bank in India was eagerly named after Nun.
Through the trademark :trying to tell her that her name and reputation should not be misused
Owning a trademark on a color can be a difficult task. In 2013, Nestle won a court battle against the confectionary opponent Cadbury, which was known as the trademark of its purple trademark 2865C – its dairy milk bar. So we decided to do something about it, “says Mr. Sarkar.” Through this, we are trying to tell the world that its name and prestige should not be misused.
It is also unclear how this trademark will be applied on the famous blue striped sari. Many online shopping sites already sell variations of “Unisek Mother Teresa Dress” – a blue border sari, and a long side blouse
