Details: The book chronicles the lives, craft and future of people living in six rural areas of West Bengal where the economy is driven by rather unusual professions. One cluster of craftsmen churns out wigs, others make lights, polo balls, boats, shuttlecocks and jeans. Following the original process which has been passed down generations, these craftsmen keep alive old family traditions.
