this photo was taken in a village of South 24 Parganas where 80% of villagers use to make wooden basket to earn for living. This woman has two children and she earns daily 50$ by making this wooden baskets. So woods has a very important role in their life. but these days use of plastic baskets has destroyed the market of this traditional wooden baskets, as the result economically they are struggling hard. and may be some day we will lost this traditional profession.
