Photographer's Note

Absolutely hot from my camera.
I went to the Poshchimbanga Hastashipla Mela (West Bengal Handicrafts Fair) today afternoon to get some shots of the traditional crafts and the craftsmen. I start with this one, and will post some more in future.

This is Rajkumar Bhakat. He is one of several craftsmen making artefacts of bamboo in his village. He comes from Alampur, P.O. Shibajinagar in Malda district. He is a craftsmen generatinwise, which means that his father and grandfather were in the same profession. His son and daughters are also in the same profession.

He is one of the craftsmen who visit this fair every year and has also done good trade this time. While I took the shot of this display, he gave me a friendly stare. I just loved his moustache, don't you?
