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. (Seen in the photo is Dwarka Prasad's daughter in law).This photo was shot on film. Taken by sriparna with a Lomography La Sardina loaded with Fuji C 200 film in Bassi, India. These tags describe this photo: bassi, chai, kavad, and woodcraft. Date: 2012-01. Time: Noon. This photo can also be found in the album chai and its maker.
