A self-made man

It was Holi. We had no doubts that we would be shown doors when we reach the weavers' houses. But to our surprise, several were working. They welcomed us with open arms. We left from Sealdah early morning for Phulia and later went to Shantipur. There we met this wonderful person called Bappa. 

 

He is a weaver from the age of 15. He and his brother are in this profession for long now. Initially, he was a job worker, working for different master artisans and brands. With time he developed his own designs and patterns and started an independent business. He mainly caters to local market. He has 20 weavers working with him now. His expertise is jacquard weaving. 

His independence and integrity are above money.
