Shaping stones!

"I learnt this art from my grandfather. Back then, it was really an art to be able to cut stones and create beautiful sculptures or statues. There’s no value for it today. I’ve been doing the same thing for 50 years. Forget money, but I don’t even get appreciation in any form - from the government, customers or art enthusiasts. It fetches me 500 rupees per day, out of which, 200 goes in other expenses of buying the rock and lorry charges for transportation. You tell me how to survive with that money. It’s tough but it’s the only thing I know. So, I made sure my children aren’t into this. It ends with me. I’m fine with them doing other jobs like office boy and daily laborers. When you have a special skill, you don’t want to give it up, even if it’s not worth much money. I don’t want my children to be in that phase ever. "
