Having travelled a long way from home I was clutching onto my mini-Kaavad preciously. I had seen it in Delhi and could have bought it there. But for some reason, that makes no sense to me, I told myself I'll buy it only from the craftsman. I found out where these craftsmen lived, read about them and marked Bassi on my travel-map (which is in my head). So steering this years' new year trip towards Chittorgarh might have had an ulterior motive after all. Chittorgarh, and 26 kms further, I was at the craft village which is the only place that makes temple shrines (and mini ones too). I was there. And I got what I had come for. What I didn't know was that the National Award winner himself would invite me to his house for a cup of tea.
